Im comping a 2d image over a 3d object and want to know if there is a way to view it without having to render every frame everytime I want to see it or to make sure the object is lining up with the 2d movie? any tips are very appreciated

One possible way is to make a flat polgon and position it between the camera and the main object. Then project your image/s onto it and view it in textured shaded mode. This will give you a frame by frame update. Then hide the flat poly before doing test renders. It's rough but it will work in certain situations.

Can you temporarily load your foreground overlay as your background image? At least, then you can always have it in the camera view and be able to judge the relative position of your 3D object on a frame by frame basis.
