Can AlamDV take a picture of for example a dog's head and place it over a video as a effect to make it look like someone had a dog for a head . I dont know i just wanted to do something like that cause ive seen them do it on Jay Leno and its really funny. If anyone knows how to do it please respond

Sure, that is perfectly plausible for AlamDV. Just find a picture of the dog that you would like to turn into a plugin, crop out whatever you don't need and add an alpha channel. Use plugger to turn it into a plugin and then overlay it onto your footage. Then all you have to do is keyframe. If you have any more specific questions, just post back and I'm sure either I, or someone else can help you biggrin

Aw, it's no problem. Tell you what, you find a nice, big picture of the type of thing your looking for, and I'll make the plugin for you. How's that sound? biggrin

When you find it, PM me and I'll set you up with eithe AIM transfer, email, or another process. Try to get it large as possible/high resolution. That'll make things much easier. wink
