You got that right! I had several files on YouTube and in 2 years only 1 idiot comment. About a week after he posted it, noticed that all of his files were disabled by YouTube....karma?

After seeing this, there's no way I can trust what he has to say about the dogs in other cities.


You should film an NYC dog next chuck, and cross promote it from this video :lol:

Good idea Ed, I think either Red Sox or Braves jerseys would work pretty well :)
Maybe wear a Red Sox cap and a Braves jersey :yh:

Thanks Cheryl! I checked out Chuck's Hot Dog parody lol Then I followed the links to your youtube page ~ Nice combination motion background clips and method description. I want to use a track matte in this project I'm working on, but haven't figured it out yet. I'm going to follow your steps and give it a try, thanks :TU:

Karri, changing up the order of 2 motion backgrounds will give you different looks. Also changing the color of the matte. The possibilities are endless.....lots of motion backgrounds here to choose from. :-D

Cheryl what I actually want to do is cut out the background of a video with a lady speaking so that only the lady is visible and then behind her, show the contents of another track. I know it's not exactly what you are doing, but your method seems a good (straight forward) explanation of how to link the tracks. Hope this makes sense lol Thanks :)

Karri, can't really cut out a person unless they were filmed in front of a green screen. You could use one of garbage mattes (4, 8, or 16 points) and keyframe as the person moves. Or..create a white oval mask in the titler and as follows:

Track 1: background video
Track 2: Lady speaking w/track matte applied pointing at track 3
Track 3: White oval mask.

By adding a gaussian blur to the white mask, about 20 or so blur, will soften the area around the person speaking.

Since you have Pro, check out the tutorials at Wiki

http://premierepro.wikia.com/wiki/Category:CS3

The tutorials here are very good too even tho they may be for PrEl, most of the tasks are the same.

There is a difference matte in Pro, tried it and could not get the look I wanted. A good book is Premiere Pro Bible for which ever version you have.

Hope this helps. :)
