Is there a way to create a garbage matte but instead of making it transparent just making it so that it's a solid color?

Placing a solid color in the layer behind it would work. Just make one in any basic image editing program.

Thanks. I was just wondering because I already have a video clip for a background and I didn't want to have too many layers. I just wanted to cover up some areas with plain black.

Rule #1 of compositing: you can't have too many layers.

I agree with Axeman, use as many, or as few, layers as you can to finish the effect the way you want it.

Right. As few as possible, as many as necessary.
