the thing is chromy has no way to put a layer of video directly over an alpha channel like that, so it automatically adjusts to the person. Youd probably need to use masking... Or am I wrong?

There is currently no easy way to do that in Chromanator. At this point you can't transfer alpha channel information from one clip to another. Your best bet at this point I think would be to use a mask object to garbage matte around your person, then apply that mask to the other clip. I'm not yet an expert on the masking systems in Chromy though.
