1.From AfterEffects,Export the frame of the footage you want to extend as a PSD
2.Open it in photoshop and paste the elements you want to add.Save it back again.
3.Open it in aftereffects as a new comp.replace the background still layer with the footage.
4.Motion track the footage.Apply the tracking data to a null object.
5.Parent[pickwhip] the elements to the null object.That's it! You are 'Extended'!
