Explanation:
Εκτός από την απλή μεταγραφή (που φαίνεται στην ερώτηση στην οποία έγινε παραπομπή), προτείνω και αυτό βάσει του:

For an example of a simple matte, we may wish to depict a group of actors in front of a store, with a massive city and sky visible above the store's roof. We would have two images—the actors on the set, and the image of the city—to combine onto a third. This would require two ***masks/mattes***.
Other shots may require mattes that change, to mask the shapes of moving objects, such as human beings or spaceships. These are known as travelling mattes. Travelling mattes enable greater freedom of composition and movement, but they are also more difficult to accomplish.
