    Default Help with adding video into a movie

    Hi everyone, first time poster here,yes I know what you're thinking, that the hell does the title mean?

    Well let me explain, I've got a video I made with my Canon XM2 and now I want to add video into it....confused...read on

    Basically I want to add other video into the existing video, for example there is an office scene which I filmed and I want to add say for example, a train running in the background.

    DOes anyone have a tutorial or guide for this sort of thing?

    I've got Ulead and Windows Movie Maker. I've got Final Cut too, cos I'm on a Mac and PC.

    I'm thinking about getting Adobe After Effects, but I don't know if I could use that to do this.

    Any help is appreciated.

    This could be hugely complicated or dead easy and depending on the exact scene there are many ways of skinning this cat.
    Rather than me write a hundred words trying to cover all the cats perhaps you could be more specific as to your ambitions.

    Thanks for the reply Mark

    Basically I've got an office scene, kind of a Big Brother style shot where the camera just sits there and everyone is doing their own thing. I want to have a crocodile walking across the middle of the room.

    How would I do that?

    Cheers
