How can I go from the first pic to the lower pic. Right now I am only able to select the greenscreen from my video. But I want to show the background and remove the greenscreen like in the lower pic. In case you are wondering someone did the second picture for me. However I would like to know how I can do that myself. All the tutorials seem to extract the image and put in on a background. But I kinda am doing the opposite. Please help I have been struggling with this for so long.
Well, let me be very direct: It wouldn't hurt if you actually sat down to read the help. After several posts on very basic AE stuff the "newbie cuteness" factor of your questions is wearing off. Should you decide to read the help, then the section on masking will clearly enlighten you on what mask modes and copy&paste can do for you....
I showed you exactly how to do that in your other post. You can not learn AE without studying the tools Or referring to the help files.
