Dear Adobe people,

I have worked a lot with people acting in low budget green screen studios and of course, that is always a pain when you finally come to compositing.


I was wondering: would it be possible that After Effects understands a moving entity compared to a still backgrond? Like, when you put a camera on a tripod and a dancer is moving in front of it in several takes, and you put all the takes below each other in the time line, select all and push 'cut moving entity from background'?


I know there is the rotoscope tool, but that means a lot of waiting on rendering and frame-te-frame editing. But if the feature would see, through all imported footage, the consequent still parts (of a background) compared to the inconsequent parts (which would be the moving object or entity) it should be possible to have a perfect composite - i think?


thank you for considering, i am sure you would help the lot of the community a lot!
