I have a video and a person walks in front of where I want to put the tracked model and I didn't know if you could cut him out so the model will go behind him like in AE or if that wasn't possible in blender.

It is possible, since blender has fully featured masking capabilities. Here is a simple setup to show you how it works:

If you were able to shoot against a green screen, use this setup instead:

Note: If you need to feather a certain point on you mask, you can hit Alt-S. If you need to feather the whole mask, add a color ramp node after the mask node, you can then tweak the feathering.

    $\begingroup$ Just one comment. The way those things are done is using chroma keying in your video, otherwise masking has to be done manually and frame by frame. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Krishan I'm sorry but our site format does not support full tutorials. If you need more in depth instruction or step by step guidance, go to youtube to learn a little more about video masking in blender. Some search words i'd recommend are "Video Masking", "Blender Green-screen" Or "Video tracking in blender". thanks -- $\endgroup$
