  • Edit your video clips before you add your green screen effect
  • Make sure that your background image or video lasts as long as your video clip that you are overlaying.
  • EXTREMELY important that you don’t wear blue or green or use blue or green props!!!

stock footage photos
Stock Footage & Photos
  • For some scenes, it will be impossible to get your own background video or photos. If you or your students need to get the image off the web, make sure that they choose a “large size” image so that it doesn’t appear pixilated in the video. (This is probably also a good time to talk to your students about Creative Commons.)
  • Create your own stock footage / photo library


Using Green Screen Effects in Pinnacle

Drag the video to the second video track.

The Chroma Key Controls
  • Go through the controls pretty much in the order they appear.
  • Start by selecting the colour with the eyedropper. Then move the colour tolerance up until most of your background vanishes.
  • Next, use the saturation minimum control to tidy up the key - so that everything in the background is removed.
  • Use the softness control to adjust the strength of the background image .
  • The transparency slider fades out your foreground image.
  • Spill Suppression control acts on the edges of your objects, removing any green fringes or hues that can appear on complicated edges or semi-transparent objects.
