    Default Photoshop

    I hope to gods someone can answer this.

    I'm working on a music video in Vegas Movie Studio, but for one part I want to make a montage. So I opened an .mp4 file in Photoshop.

    What I want to do is take a person from a black and white clip, colourize it and then superimpose it on a video background. I want the person to stay in one place, but the panning changes during the clip. I can't work out how to adjust the panning with Photoshop. Unfortunately by the time I realized this I'd already cut out the figure from his original background, and when I export it to Sony Vegas I lose the transparency.

    So the question is:
    a) is there a video format that I can export from Photoshop that will let me keep a transparent background and that I can open with Vegas?
    b) how can I change the panning of the video with Photoshop? (I tried using Transform but the whole thing moves)

    I'm working in PS CS3 Extended. The file I'm editing is saved as .psd.

    Ok, I solved it. In case anyone else wants to do the same, here's the answer (even if it is in the wrong forum):

    When I've opened the file I go to Window > Animation.
    Then in the animation window I go to the frame I want to be the keyframe, click on the Move Tool (P) and move the image to where I want it to go. The other frames will adjust so that the transition is smooth.

    Et voilą.
