Yeah, you can use masks. At the most basic level it's just the old 'split screen' technique. If you get into masks then you can do more complex things and more interaction.

However, some shots would be A LOT easier with a greenscreen. smile

I think Tarn would, as he made them. razz

Here's one on masks: http://fxhome.com/support/video-tutorials/category/4/compositing.

To have a lot of interaction between clones, just use 'freehand' masks.

Sure thing! I'd also recommend you to watch all the other tutorials (that relate to CLab, anyway). They're really great help to learn the software.
