Import, duplicate and mask the video

Import the video and position the letter C above the first shape layer, then choose Create a Clipping Mask from the Layer menu. Duplicate the video layer, move it above the next shape layer, and repeat the process for each letter that you need. Add all of the video and shape layers into a Layer Group named “Letters.”
