I want to be able to create a video of myself running along a blue background and then superimpose myself in a video of eg deep space , so it looks like im running in deep space(the blue background would be replaced by the video of deep space)
The above is just an example of the things I would like to do

What PC application could I use to merge 2 video files in this way?

Please can an expert help me resolve this issue.

    You would use "alpha channel".. usually green or blue screen.. also known as "chroma key"
