Wanna make Green Screen video, but don’t have green screen and all the equipment?

Here is the Trick 🙂 Use grass!

What is green screen video or more precisely “Chroma key”?

Let’s have a look  on Wikipedia:

Chroma key compositing, or chroma keying, is a special effects or post-production technique for compositing (layering) two images or video streams together based on color hues (chroma range).

The technique has been used heavily in many fields to remove a background from the subject of a photo or video – particularly the newscasting, motion picture and videogame-industries.

A color range in the top layer is made transparent, revealing another image behind. The chroma keying technique is commonly used in video production and post-production.

This technique is also referred to as color keying, colour-separation overlay or by various terms for specific color-related variants such as green screen, and blue screen – chroma keying can be done with backgrounds of any color that are uniform and distinct, but green and blue backgrounds are more commonly used because they differ most distinctly in hue from most human skin colors.

It is commonly used for weather forecast broadcasts, wherein a news presenter is usually seen standing in front of a large CGImap during live television newscasts, though in actuality it is a large blue or green background.

Chroma keying is also used in the entertainment industry for special effects in movies and videogames.

The advanced state of the technology and much commercially available computer software, such as Autodesk Smoke, Final Cut Pro, Pinnacle Studio, Adobe After Effects, and dozens of other computer programs, makes it possible and relatively easy for the average home computer user to create videos using the “chromakey” function with easily affordable green screen or blue screen kits.

So… if you don’t have full access to all these high-tech, use our grass trick 😉
