You'll need to provide some more details. What kind of help do you need exactly? Have you got some screengrabs of the movie in question, and mock-ups of the kind of thing you need?

Thank you very much for geting back to me. The video that we are working with has a deer eating corn in the woods, we would like to remove the corn out of the video and replace it with the surrounding area such as other sections of the ground or even other video that we might have. Or can we just paint over it? We are using visionLab studio and sony vegas as are main softwware. Since I've got visionLab I have been confused with it. Is there a training video for this program that I can buy. Again thanks for geting back to me. Aj

There are a whole bunch of training videos, but you can't buy them. 'Cause they are free. Check out the support section of the site.

Also, check out the little button at the top of each post labeled "Edit". You can use that to add more info to your previous post, rather than adding another reply to the thread.

Is your camera locked off while shooting the deer, or does it move? If its locked off it might not be too difficult to replace a bit of the foreground, but it also depends a lot on exactly what the foreground contains, and what exactly you want to replace it with. It will basically be a matter of using masks and compositing layers, but the details of the scene have a lot to say about how easy that actually is. Check out the video tutorials on Compositing to familiarize yourself with the basics of the program, and then if you still need assistance, perhaps you could provide a frame or a clip of the footage in question?
