    Talking Green screen hand removal from a pet

    Hi you guys i m new here,

    Can you guys give me tips on directing a video - the scene is simple but the actuall end product is far from it...
    I want to have a "ghost hand" peting and moving a cat (kinda generic ghost scene)

    The plan is for me to wear a green-chroma glove and then digitally remove the hand - make it "transparent"

    Any tips, help instructions are welcome big time!!!!

    I was thinking i have to remove the whole hand out of the "shot" so i guess it would make it easier for me to edit if i could put a "layer" over the green screen - a layer of fur and some background if you know what i mean ....

    Are you wanting a semi transparent hand which actually moves the fur (as if stroking the cat)? If so you will need to animate the fur. If you just want a ghost hand that looks like it is stroking the cat but not having a physical effect on the fur then you could just shoot it twice (once with the hand and once without but you would need a very compliant cat!)
