yes. while im not sure what you are trying to do, it seems that you just want to put someone on a train using a greenscreen. Chromanator can do that much better than other programs.

You can resize and rotate someone to fit in a specific place in Chromanator using the Animate Tab. Evman originally anwered this same question when I asked it. smile

I suggest that you download the demo and then look up how to do the stuff Ben says in the manual.

Ok my friend I have already done this. (only the other way round, I filmed a real platform and added the train)

(screen shot is not great,It's a HO scale model)


This is for my western The Prospector...

The camera must be locked down and I used an onionskin (the real shot at 50% opacity) to line up the perspectives, make sure your blue/green screen is relatively well lit and you will be fine!!!
I did this in Final Cut Express
