This video shows how to make the magic happen in post production for green screen footage. In it, I demonstrate the fundamental steps of keying the green, adjusting the matte, and so on. Also, I show common problem areas and how to deal with them. I even posted the exact footage I use for you to download, so you can practice with the green screen techniques on the same footage I’m working with.
Although I use Final Cut Pro in this example, the principles are the same regardless of the software you’re using for your work.
I introduce three powerful filters in Final Cut Pro:
- Color Smoothing
- Chroma Keyer
- Matte Choker
I also briefly touch on other concerns like noticing light source direction and color, and how to make them match for both the background and foreground clips.
