Post Capture Green Screen Editing

Capturing directly into an app has its advantages, as soon as you get it right you are good to go, but it does bring its problems:

  • It can be time consuming getting it right
  • Artifacts can creep in that you dont find out until later
  • Or you actually find a better background
  • You just may not like using an App
  • or don’t want to limit your options and may have a second camera available

Capturing the ‘real’ footage, green screen an all still allows you fake your scene through post capture editing. There are a range of great software options such as iMovie or Adobe Premiere but you need the hardware or software at a cost. A budget option is VSDC, it’s free (be careful when installing as it pays for itself through bundled software that you can choose to not install).

It’s not the most intuitive of software but their are plenty of Youtube video tutorials to guide you through, with two of the best covering basic chroma-keying and layering:
