    Fantastic video! I had no idea about how complex even old movies were. Seems like this ought to work for using layers digitally. But I still don’t understand the use of mats when superimposing an opaque figure with a transparent background against an opaque background image. Anyway, thanks for the video.

      What don’t you understand, Kathleen? How they combined them? They would lay the foreground film directly on top of the background film, with the background showing through the transparent areas on the foreground film and take a new picture of the combined images.

      Sure is, love all the amazing insights from this video! ūüôā Think of the two superimposing images, as two layers inside photoshop. Both layers would show everything. Then you add masks to each of the layers. One of them would cut out the figure, leaving the background. The other mask would cut out the background, leaving the figure. When combined, they would appear to be one single image. Hope that makes sense!
