  • Relocating my picture on green screen

    I captured myself speaking with green screen in the background, with me in the bottom left corner of the frame. I would like to move my location to the bottom right corner. I just cannot seem to get it in Edius 7.53, which is what I have. It will help me a lot, that way when I do chromakey, I don't have to re-record with me sitting at different positions, depending on the footage I want to overlay myself on.

    Detailed steps, or link to demo video or forum answer will help immensely.

    Regards,

    Maybe try the Layouter, cropping as needed and then moving in the x direction.

      If you scale the foreground clip with Layouter or the Transform effect, the background will be black so the Chromakey will not work there.
      So :
      step 1. turn off the chromakey effect on the Key channel if its applied.
      step 2. open Layouter or Transform effect and find Background color, increase opacity to 100%.
      step 3 use the Background color eyedropper to select the same chromakey color from the Edit Preview window (probably green).
      step 4 use the Layouter or transfrom effect to move or scale subject. The background should be the same color.
      step 5 turn on the Chromakey effect in the key channel (below the clip).

        you can also enable the rectangle in the chroma keyer, this will then eliminate the black and show the correct bg behind the talking head

          Thank you very much for the detailed steps. Those worked perfect.

            Thank you for responding. I was able to achieve it with the steps given by another user. But I would like to understand know your method as well. What is 'enable rectangle'? Is it only in Edius 9? At least I cannot find it in my version (7.53).
