Using Depth Compositing
You can use a Z Depth or World Position Pass to integrate other layers. What you could do is use a duplicate of your Element layer, set the duplicate to Z Depth from the Output/Show. You can then set that layer as a track matte for another layer to get it to appear behind an object.

Depth Compositing
• Use a Z-pass render to combine 2D stock footage
• Use most 3D programs like 3D max, C4D & even Element 3D


Z Depth Start:
Control the start depth (white) and how it transitions to the End (black).

Z Depth End:
Control the position of the Depth (black)  

Clamp Output:
Limits the maximum depth value to 1 when using 32bpc.

Preserve Alpha:
Makes background transparent
