    Need help on how to do an idea in Adobe After Effects

    aahdt

      Hi, I was wondering if I can make something like this (This Fall: Chicago Med | Video | Chicago Med | NBC) in After Effects. Mostly the part in the end, where it shows the cast standing and you can see the city of Chicago right through them. I want to make something similar to this, but instead of the cast standing I want to replace it using a image. Is this possible? Can anyone walk me thorough the steps? Thanks!

          Think track mattes and blend modes. I am guessing at least five layers.

          White background, masked skyline with partial transparency, keyed actors, a copy of skyline with keyed copy of actors as a track matte with blend mode set to multiply and a text layer. You may need to pre-compose the track matted skyline pair and add a gradient track matte to the pre-comp.
