Ok, firstly i couldnt see a forum part where its a fee for all question type thing so ill ask in here.

is their a plugin or soemthing that will enable to do this job.

ive always wondered if its ossible to gain several footage sources and then add parts of the footage thats needed from each to complete the main footage.

in other words, if none of the footage sources has a complete area of visual im wondering if its posisble to take areas of source footage and blend it with each other to make it complete?

well kinda but im wondering if say the footage is video footage and i wanted to add top bottom left right sides if needed to the additional footage it needs to joins to.

say if somebody was speaking and one footage has only partial the face and you have another footage source which has the right side and the remaining right side footage, if its posisble to jon the two to complete the visual

That won't be easy. You'd have to stabilize both pieces of footage and compensate for any optical distortion differences between the two shots before merging them.

[mathew lisett] "is there a specific plugin to do this."

Not that I know of. You'll have to use a number of different techniques to match the footage by hand. Different pieces of footage will present different problems, and require different solutions.

I mentioned stabilizing the shots and compensating for optical distortion.

I suppose I should also add masking, rotoscoping, and color correction to the list.

You've asked a simple question with a complicated answer.

Like merging all the photos of the sky into a planetarium? Well, if you tried this with landscape, you would need to be very far away, then zoom in so that when you merge them, you don't have extreme parallax errors(this is even beyond optic compensation with bar graphs btw!) You're basically making stereoscopic stuff if you don't.
