If you want to use a video of a person as a mask then here’s one way to do that using the ‘binary-man.mov’ footage attached (stolen from this forum as it makes a good test video for just this sort of thing!). To get this sort of footage you can either shoot people against a blank background (or greenscreen) and do some processing which can be tricky to get right without good conditions, or do something a bit more clever with the Kinect (Zachary Sidess’ tool can help you here: http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=37285)
Anyway, heres the patch and the mov:
