ofcourse! it will be tricky though. First you will need to be surrounded with greenscreen. its best to lie on the floor then Composite an animation of the sky.

I don't know, you'll have to figure things out for yourself.

Once you've got your subject keyed, you can place the clip into the background, and use the animation tools in whatever program you're using to create a flight path.

I assume you're using CompositeLab. So after you keyed out the subject, click on the "Animation" tab on the timeline. Then you should see a square appear around your footage. Then you can move the footage up over a few Key-Frames. Try adding some motion blur to it to make it more realistic.

I'd have assumed the same, but if you are using CL, please register the program with the site for any further assistance.

If he is trying out the demo, he can't register it yet. But he may still what some help figuring out how do accomplish certain effects.

This doesn't always work but if you make your footage (NOT the background animation) smaller or larger using the "Scale" tool from the "Animation" menu, you can give the effect that Superman (or yourself in this case) is coming closer to or farther away from the camera. By doing this you no longer need to make an animated background.

to make it look like your moving i would suggest the easy way. get in the car and while your moving aim the camera upwards towards the sky and film the sky moving past you, then get your greenscreened actor and place him on the mocing cloud background. also be sure to grade your greenscreened actor so he fits in well with the sky.

Basically next time you go out in a car take the camera and film certain parts going past you. sky, houses ect
