    How do I knockout background of clip?

    Pilkinton

      I have a live shot of a band playing and want to pull the guitar player and knockout the rest. And this was not shot in front of a green screen. I have started the process of drawing a mask and have what I want as far as a clean mask, but it will need to be adjusted on almost every frame for the 40 second clip. Is there a way to simplify the process? Illustrator is one of my favorite programs, but to draw each frame is a bit much. On the good side, he is not moving that much so I should be able to copy some of the mask for areas further down the time line in AE.

       

      Thanks,
