    Putting part of one scene into another scene

    Jason the Artist

      Please excuse my inexperience here.  I'm fairly new to After Effects, and not quite sure how to search for something like this.

       

      I've been doing a lot of experimenting with light sabers.  I would actually love to be able to do a lot more, but just trying to get a feel for things right now, so im trying to do stuff with light sabers.

       

      What I'd like to do is take a moving figure from one scene, and put him into another scene.  What i've done is take two videos of myself fighting, the one video shows me on one side, the other video shows me on the other.

       

      I want to combine the two videos and add light sabers so that it appears as though I'm fighting myself.

       

      I'm pretty sure it includes mapping, possibly mapping myself in the one video, and moving that map onto the other video.   But I'm not sure how to do that, if thats what it is.  Any tips, or advice?  Possibly a walk-through for something like this?

       

      I promise to post the video when I'm finished!
