    A pretty easy effect to achieve, but we need to know what software you're using to explain.

    Ok Terocs.

    What you need to do is lay the second track with no one walking above the original. Then select Cookie Cutter in the effect chain, select rectangle, and size it using the drag bars to hide the bit you dont want to see (ie to the left of the lamp-post, let's say). You can feather the edge a little bit to help cover the join and hey presto. Man walks in on bottom track, and is hidden by top track.

    I dont mean to hijack this thread but its kinda related...
    I want to srink the frames down and have the credits scroll next to them. That way I can show out takes and the credits and then fade to just the credits... Make sense? I hope so.....LOL

    CP - Use 'track motion', click the icon next to the effects button above the level slider at the left where the track number / name is. This brings up a new window with a frame in it representing the output size, drag this 'thinner', fiddle and you should see what I mean.
