Hi, If you know how to do a Live action to animation crossover, please let me know what to use in Cyberlink?

I have some ideas but not sure. I was thinking that if I could use a split screen, I could duplicate a video and rotoscope one of them, then cut out the parts not needed. Another idea was using the layer effect by having it blur the duplicate until it looks like line drawing.

I can't find a tutorial on how to do this and don't want to spend time trying to figure this out when I don't know where to start from and end up spendin a lot of time doing it wrong, so I appreciate any help anyone here can give me to put me on the right direction. Thank you.

There are so many ways to do this and so many possible animation styles that I don't think anyone can give you the exact steps. If you're talking about a split screen, that adds many other dimensions of possiblities.

One obvious way is to use an FX like Oil Painting, Color Edge, Pencil Sketch, Emboss... and fade the effect in while the focus shifts to the animated clip.

You can also skip the FX and simply fade the live action clip out while the animated clip on the upper track becomes prominent.
