Okay, heres my question. Say your doing a Star Wars movie and you want to add the tv scan lines to a greenscreened shot. Is there a way, with out having to mask every frame, to use the alpha channel of the person that youre putting the scan lines over to mask the scanlines to fit the person exactly? If you dont get what Im saying just ask what you need me to explain better.

I know what you mean, but I'm afraid you can't import an image to use as a mask. This is a feature which has been mentioned before, along with exporting alpha. Perhaps these ideas will be incorporated into future releases.
