    thanks guys. Looks like i'll have to shell out for after effects. is there a work around in premier for now? My mate will be applying any AE lighting efx like torches and street lights, but i like sticking with editing and grading if i can. and will pass it on to him for his part later on.

    A few early tests in urban surroundings made me feel it is near impossible to get it realistic. cars and reflective objects dont look convincing. being in woodland made things a lot easier. though as a photoshop professional, working with photo post processing on a daily basis I just used similar techniques in premier where possible. i considered importing into photoshop as animations at one point!

    for now i will take a screen grab and use it as a guide when making custom masks in photoshop (my comfort zone). though this will only do for static tripod shots. AE will be required for moving/pans i assume? thanks for your advice

    For pans or shots with movements, it will depend on the type of movement in the shot. Just a simple pan, with a nice even speed, could use a keyframed .psd file in Premiere, using the basic motion controls. A handheld scene, with irregular movement, would need AE with it's tracking abilities and keyframable bezier masks.

    Thanks for all the comments. I tried layering a graduated mask over the top of the footage and couldnt quite get it right. Looked too processed. I just had a go with some more footage taken a few days later. it was hard to match them but i dont think its too bad a job.

    the scenes with movement help greatly with realism.

    When you do get AE.... here's a great tutorial, but it's still worth watching now too.
