ADVANCED - GREEN SCREEN MASKING

The green screen masking technique also known as chroma keying is widely used in the film and TV industry for special effects. We show here how to use it to give the illusion of a 3D model, but many other applications are possible.

Green screen masking, step by step...


Example setting
 

All you need is a uniform color sheet (green is the best but any color will work if it's very different from the subject color), a rotating tray and a video camera on tripod.

Make sure your object is well centered on the tray, start recording and slowly turn the tray clockwise at least 360°.

Convert your video to mp4 and load it with the i-Video app.

 

 
Crop the image to fit the subject.

Match start and end frames for a 360° rotation.

Hit PROCESS

On next screen, select MASKING - REMOVE BACKGROUND

 

 
On the thumbnail, click/tap on the green background. The background turns to red on the main image.

Use the sliders to adjust.

Then select PLAY & PUBLISH

 

 
Select the final format.

Check 360°, select Continous and adjust the speed.

You may now add a background image and publish.
