Frames and cartoons over 'live' action

Tony, you asked where Julie obtained her graphics from in her opening clip. Answer being that I don't really know. However it is possible to get a similar effect by constructing your own frame in a paint/photo package such as 'photo shop' and I believe Serif have a similar program, give it a transparent background and save it as a .PNG file. Once imported into MVP you can put it onto a higher video track than your 'live' action and that's the frame taken care off.

To get the gingerbread man I found a suitable animated .GIf file on the interweb and imported it. I then placed it onto a higher video track, and using 'chroma key' got rid of the white background. I then had to put the manufactured frame, and the gingerbread man into a video group and left the 'live' action outside of it. The result is far from perfect, but with a bit more time spent on it...
