That was pretty helpful! I'm pretty book dumb about using green screen or any sort of keying so I've strayed away from masking for a while, but you really simplified it for me!

Thanks!

This is exactly what I was looking for! Quick question, when you make the outline of the rig and have to adjust the mask each frame, could you just move the whole outline? Does that make sense? Like instead of adjusting the points each time time, could you just move the whole outline to follow the rig?

You certainly can. IN the layers panel under the Mask layer, there will be one called Position, if you select that before going to move the mask, the whole mask will be moved. Remember, you need to have the stopwatch selected on the layer in order for it to be animated. If you didn't catch it in the the video, PageUp and PageDown are the shortcut keys to toggle between single frames in AE, This makes the process easy. Hope this helps!
