Changing the sky "Masking"

Hello all,

I need all the help that I can get with this project. I have shot a footage for a music video, the sky is all cloudy and grey.
I need to change it with a timelapse cloud footage that I have. Please tell me as how I can do this?

Thanks as always
Matthew

Matthew, try a blue gradient instead of your timelapse footage.
Either way, you'll probably end up having to use the bezier masking feature (with a feathered bottom edge) in Pan/Crop to get it to match.
Hopefully the shot(s) was/were static so that you won't have to do a lot of keyframing.

Always glad to help Matthew.
BTW, if you're not up to speed on Bezier masking, there's an article called Tech tip: discovering the power of Bézier masking in a recent Sony newsletter.
The author also links to a previous article on how to creating masking tracks that may be useful as well.
If all that fails, just holler as there are some Bezier masking "gurus" here who would be glad to help.

Matthew, could/would you post a still? I recently did something similar and if I can see that there maybe something I can forward back to you, I will! :-)

Grazie
