Editing green screen can be a daunting and tedious job and without the proper technique it’s almost impossible to get even decent results. However, following the steps described in this course will enable you to get very fast results and with the minimum amount of effort.
I’ll show you exactly how to achieve a perfect key for your green screen footage, how to eliminate the semitransparent areas, how to get smooth yet crisp edges and much more.

To add even more value to this course, we’ve also included a set of lessons on color correction and a lesson on how to seamlessly integrate your actor footage with the background and fit perfectly in the context.

As a bonus we’ve have included animated background and a lower third After Effects Template, that you can see here. This way you can create your own presentation video in a couple of minutes.

• you can use your own branding such as logo or corporate colours
• you can set up video press releases
• motion graphics can be added in conjunction with the actual footage
• an overall much more professional look for your video and message
