I didnt know where to post this.
But will chromanator (final release) have a feature to use a clip's transparency on another clip? Like in AE etc. you can key out someone on a greenscreen import a video clip and use the persons' clip's alpha so you see the other clip in the shape of the person.

Erm, you can invert the matte probably, that will do the same thing, except it will all be in Chromanator.

This is what I mean.

Origional -> Keyed -> Alpha Channel -> Other image -> Then that alpha is used to make the shape of the man (The final image)

Maybe you could key the background, invert it, which keys the guy out, then put the picture you want, then render it, open it up again, key the background out and put the 2nd picture!

You could do a garbage matte on the person, and tehn copy and paste it on the backgrounds file aand delete it from the person.
