Green Screen shoot question
on Sep 2, 2008 at 5:36:36 pm


I’m doing a green screen shoot in the next few days. It’s going to be shots of people inront of a greenscreen that will serve to populate preexisted plates I have been given.

I’m shooting with an HVX200 and working on a G5 in Shake and After Effects.

Here is my question, is their some kind of software I can use that if I feed video out from the HVX into the G5, I can preview on the computer what I’m shooting live with lets say 50% opacity and have my plate underneath so that way I can make sure that the perspective I’m shooting from will match the perspective of my plate? It would also be nice to be able to scale and move the live feed ontop of my plate, since the subject or subjects in front of the greenscreen will be majorly scaled down to the plate later in post since it’s a vista shot.

I’ve trying to find info about this but couldn’t find anything for the life of me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Major thanks in advance

Why reinvent the wheel?

Any low-end video mixer will allow you to do a half-fade between two video sources. Put your plate on one SOURCE and the NTSC output on another SOUCRE for positioning. We have found this to be much quicker than trying to monitor on FCP/etc.


I edit video. I post sometimes.
I fix things. I eat marshmallows.
I play drums. I drink scotch.
I like TV.

Done typing now.
