Hi to all! It's the first time that I am working with video in Photoshop.
Unfortunetely I can't work with AfterEffects so I try to make my first clip in Photoshop CS3 Extended.
I downloaded an amazing "explosion" .mov file.
In the downloaded zip file there was a second black-and-white .mov version of the explosion (imagine a "white explosion" in black background like an alpha channel) called "matte".
How may I combine these two videos so that the background of the original video can be transparent?
In other words how can the "matte" called .mov work as an mask for the original video? (you know... like the luma matte in AfterEffects)
Does the Photoshop has this capability?

Thankyou very much!

You will almost certainly get a better response in the Video forum.
