    Default Help with an add-on and or effect??

    Hi im currently working on some short films just to get the hang of editing so on and so forth, on one of my projects is a star wars based fan film that envolves a sequence were I want the shot to be from the point of view of one of the stormtroopers, however instead of building somekind of device that I can hook onto my cam to give it the effect of being inside the helmet, I would like to know if I can somehow add this effect through such programs as adobe premiere of adobe photoshop, if ive lost you up until now, basically I want to be able to show the point of view through the stormtroopers goggle like lence. Like is their a way to create a bor der in the shape of the inside of the helm but still mantain the footage playing as if its together?? Any help will be greatly appreciated thanx.

    Yes, you need to create a matte. Essentially you will draw the inside of the helmet in photoshop, and paint the areas you want the video to show through in white/green/blue. You can then key out this colour in Premiere.
