Here is what I am trying to do. I want to clone a person to have a conversation with himself. At some point I want one clone to hit the other one. Is there a way to mask a very specific area to allow this to happen?

If you haven't already shot this scene there are a number of methods.

Lock off the camera on a tripod with the final framing, place the person in first position, shoot it, then place them in the position for their twin, shoot that. Then, in post, use a split screen found in DVE, for putting together the two halves.

However, a wipe should give you more options, use the keyframes to set the position of the edge and adjust its softness as required.

You could also use a green screen, but the first method is traditional old school.

-and check khaver's Polymask user effects to help you mask the one shot over the other. They're the fifth entry down in this post.

I would reccomend the wipe method.
