Add a photo to a video by special effects

Postby scorpion1313 on 08/11/2016, 5:10 am

Hello guys!
Please first have a look to this 8 second video:

Now I need to use this photo: ... sp=sharing

in this 8 second video. When the camera turns to show the front and out side of the car I want use the photo but with transparency (I want dissolve), user should be able still to see the background (which is outside) and photo together. Also It's very important to have a perspective photo by changing the angles or any part of photo.

The final result I need is something like this: ... sp=sharing

But I need it dynamic, perspective (like the sample). It should be autistic.
The only thing I need is a clue from you! Where and how can I do this? You give me a clue and I try to do this myself. By which effect, plugin or solution i can do this?

Kind Regards

The steps I would take to achieve this effect would go as follows:
1) Camera track the scene so you can have your still image track with the video
2) Rotoscope out the car/windows so you can matte the image appropriately
3) Put the image in the scene and make sure the camera track is effecting it
4) Composite the image however you wish

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions or need more detail on some of that!
