Green Screen Project
A green screen video uses "chroma-key compositing" to blend a background image or video with other layers of media. This special effect is often used in newscasting and weather reporting. Green screen videos require both the use of a green background and special software.*
This page was originally created for use by students in my STEM class Maker Studio, but (as of October 2015) has been updated for workshops I (Wes Fryer) present about Green Screen video. Handouts and resource links for my other presentations/workshops are available.
Green Screen videos can be created as a type of Quick Edit Videos.
