I was wondering of with this program I can take something out of a movie
Ex: a picture of a forest and take out a tree
Then add my own thing into it using a greenscreen
Ex: the pic of the forset WITH the tree I took out, then take a tree and film it with a green screen behind it and add THAT tree into the forest and put it in the same place where the tree i took out used to be

If anyone can answer me thnx

Sure you can, it has the potential to take a really long time though. You would need footage of whatever is behind the tree to replace it when you take it out. I assume you want to know how?

Im very confused. You want to take a tree out of a picture and replace it with a video tree?
Im not sure exactly but it sounds like a job for a garbage matte. Shouldnt be much work since your doing it to a still picture.
