I am new here and totally new to video editing.
I saw a video on Youtube of how to create a video, the guy says it was easy but he was using 6.5 after effects and i am using CS3.
What i have done is got 2 videos of me playing cards, one of me sat on the right and one of me on the left. I have imported those into After effects, i then created a new composite with the two videos. What i would like to do now is mask the video so i can get the one of me playing cards on the left to show up on the video, so it looks like i am playing cards with myself.
But for some reason when i try to do this it wont work like it does in the youtube video.
Here is a link to the video so you can see what i am trying to do.
YouTube - YouTube Video Tutorial #5 - Clone yourself and Levitation!
Now when the guy does the mask you can see the video underneath, when i try this i dont see this.
(See attached pictures)
So its almost like i am working blind if you like, and when i try to render the movie i only end up with one side of me playing cards.
I am sorry i am new but can anyone give me an idea of what i am doing wrong, I am so frustrated
