Thread: How do I cut one person from a video and place them into another video?

  1. #1

    Default How do I cut one person from a video and place them into another video?

    Ok, I've heard about green screening, where you set up the green screen, shoot your video, then replace the green with an alternative background or video. I'm not talking about that. What I want to do is cut out one person from an existing video and place them into another existing video where no green screen was used in either one. I've seen this done with stills, where you paint the section you want masked off green on one still, but what about for video?

    Can you use Vegas to do this or how is it done? Here is a funny example where Obama is cut from an Ellen show and placed into Mortal Kombat

    From what it looks like, its just a few frame out from video. They probably took them into photoshop and make a sprite out of it. You would just need to cut them out and series them in order.

    the quick way is green screen the person in front of something else. The second way is to rotoscope them in front of something else. Or quicker but not as good, photoshop them doing a animation one pic at a time and put that into something.

    I don't think you have any concept of how time consuming this process is.

    Yet it will. Please don't make statements when you do not know what you are talking about.

    It depends on what you mean with masking. "How do I cut one person from a video and place them into another video"....You can not do this in Vegas.

    Yes you can.
    You can draw around any object using the Bezier masks within Pan and Crop and either mask them or the background. You will need to move to the next frame and adjust the mask for any movement, then the next, then the next ad nauseum. That's why I said it is time consuming.

    Like i said....impossible to do for video, works great for stills and pictures. That's why i said to use AE-tracking.
