Okey i'm having some trouble understanding your english, especially since it's not my primary language.

As i understand it, what you want do to do is like Sollthar's tutorial "Losing a leg"

check this out:

Anything done there can be done in Chromantor.. even with basic knowledge.

Dude you got a bit jumble of words there.

Are you asking how to make someones leg dissapear?

If so then-

1-Film your character infront of a greenscreen.
2-Chromakey your character using Chromanator.
3-Use the 'Garbage Matte' Masking system and draw a mask around the leg when it gets cut off.
4-Put another track of the same footage and repeat step 2
5-Mask the leg again only this time make it 'inverted' so everything BUT the leg is masked.
6-move the leg around make it fall or fly off, your choice.
7-Add a backround to Chromanator and then do a preview render of one of the frames, one of them with the leg flying off.

If that doesn't help then ask me questions by PMing me because I'm in a rush!
