Green Screen, Virtual Background, transparent Actor on Fade-In
on Jun 23, 2019 at 1:02:09 am

Videotaped an actor in front of a green screen, lit fairly well, pulled a pretty good key. When we fade in at the beginning, the actor is transparent and we can see the virtual background right through the actor. Looked around for a "Send to Back" or "Bring to Front", but it doesn't look like there is anything like that.

As always, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just had a thought as I finished this.

I brought the video and the virtual background into the timeline. Made all the adjustments, highlighted the video and the virtual background only and nested them together and then added the fade in at the beginning and it works fine. Oh yes, don't forget to link the audio back to the nested track.

Thanks all! False alarm.

Thanks for sharing your solution! A lot of times people just post, "Nevermind solved it". Now, if someone searches for the same issue, your answer can help! 😃
