I have kind of figured out how to greenscreen and cut out subject but how to I put that subject in another clip is it as simple as putting second clip as track 2 haven't found anything in guides or tuturals. It's taking alot of time but I'm figureing things out slowly with the rendering process was faster with alot of things were faster conversion stuff but it's all good. My biggest thing is not having enough time to do my editting cuz of work. Please help with question.

It is ok to use punctuation occasionally....
If you're asking about sompositing using garbage mattes then it's the same process as greenscreening, you just cut around the subject rather than keying out the background.

You just drag the backround thats behind the subject on the track below the video track with the subject in it. I THINK thats what your asking....

I think you're just talking about basic greenscreening in which case there's LOADS of stuff in the Quickstart and Tutorial section of the site.

Higher tracks are in front of lower tracks.
So track 3 will obscure track 1, for example.

Are you sealing the mask? If you draw a mask around only part of an object, it wont work.

The mask will render and replace the clip originally showing the subject.
Here: I made a picture with MSPAINT.

In that case, you'd have to re-render.
