First off, I'm a novice to node compositing, so I might not understand some jargons.

Below is the original video. enter image description here

Next photo: the white background is removed (my first time with invert node). The background is turned transparent. Now how do I lay this overlay upon another video or image with any different colour? I'd like to try medium brown ground or yellow for the lower ground.

    $\begingroup$ Alpha Over node usually does the trick $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Oct 22 '18 at 17:20
  • $\begingroup$ @Duarte, I had tried Alpha Over before and failed. I think I have used it wrong, but I will try it again tomorrow (my computer at work). I will try your suggestion, when I follow instructions at this thread from the past: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/7782/…. Thank you for suggesting Alpha Over node. $\endgroup$ – Rita Geraghty Oct 22 '18 at 17:57

The next day... I have tried Alpha Over as was suggested. Initially, it was tricky and difficult to work with nodes, while making mistakes. Now, I have finally achieved the desired result and here I enclose the screenshot. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Leander, are you sure? Originally, I thought that might be cheating, if I ticked my own answer as accepted and gave myself 15 points. That was what I thought previously. $\endgroup$ – Rita Geraghty Dec 10 '18 at 13:28
