Lesson 5. Motion Paths > Creating a traveling matte

Creating a traveling matte

A matte containing motion is called a traveling matte or moving matte. The matte may consist of motion footage, such as a blue-screen silhouette, or you can animate a still image matte by applying the Motion effect in Adobe Premiere Pro. When you animate a still image, you might consider making the matte frame size larger than the project frame size so that you don't see the matte edges. In the following exercise, however, you'll need to choose the actual document size.

Because the Track Matte key can be applied to a video clip, the matte can change over time. You can create a traveling matte by using a still image with applied motion or by using a black-and-white or grayscale video clip. The motion applied to a still image can be as simple as a zoom or it can be complex, involving rotations, distortions, and delays.
