I want to take stock footage of an explosion and import it into my flash cartoon project so that the explosion no longer has the black background. That way I have a real none cartoon looking explosion in the video with my cartoons. Is this possible? If so how do I do it?
Flash Pro cs6
Mac: Processor 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3
convert the animation to a gif or png sequence (if it's not already) and import into flash. use modify>trace>trace bitmap to convert the bitmaps to vectors and remove the backgrounds.
or use a video editor to remove the video's background. rotoscoping with after effects would be a good choice.
