    Hi Everyone -

    Something I've not done before, so bear with me.

    This is what I need to do.

    On an existing video of two people at a party, I need to superimpose two heads from other people.

    The superimposed heads would be 'stills', on the moving bodies of the other two guests. I'd like it to have the still heads to follow the bodies around as they move around the party.

    I know this is possible - but how? I have iMovie.

    All help appreciated.:D

    The only way I know how to do this is separate the video into individual frame images, then using an image editing application of choices paste the supermodels head over the guests head for each frame. Then putting the frames together again using like stop motion or something.

    Have fun if its a long video.

    afaik i dont think this is possible in iMovie 08 (not 100% sure about iMovie HD) as you'd need to use keyframing to move the heads around with the bodies (i think that's correct)..

    you'll probably need final cut express at least... as this also allows multiple video tracks too...
