Hi there,

I'm working with keyed footage of an actor in front of a greenscreen. My intention is to make the actor transparent, so the video layer beneath is revealed in correlation with his movements. How might I go about this?

example of what I'm looking to replicate [0:27]






thanks in advance!

one of the most direct ways would be to use a track matte.

you'd place your keyed layer above the layer to be revealed. then, from the track matte layer mode dropdown for the revealed layer, you'd select 'alpha' from the keyed layer above it.
