Video 4 of 4 in the Small Room Green Screen Series

Here’s the final video in my series on making really, really, really nice green screen videos in small spaces.

The series is platform agnostic. You can successfully accomplish any of these tasks no matter what editing program or software you use. This is because it emphasizes the processes you need to understand, not the buttons you need to click.

This video demonstrates a simple method to hide any imperfections by using your backgrounds more strategically.

P.S. Updated to show more detail in the problem areas!

Here are the 3 previous videos in the series:

Video 1 – Double-System Lighting

Video 2 – Scrubbing Out the Collar

Video 3 – Cleaning Up the Skin Tone

      Always watch your new videos. You are the high bar in green screen videos for me.

      Iโ€™d like to suggest when demonstrating jaggies and sizzles etc that you zoom in close to the problem areas. Otherwise on a mobile device they cannot be seen and the corrections not appreciated.

      Thanks again for your series.

      Excellent video, Steven!
      I have a question, where do you suggest we look for an excellent digital background (backdrop) for our green screen videos?
      I love the one that you use, and I haven’t been able to find one that inspires me as much as your digital background does.


      • Steven Washer

        I think I found that one at 123rf.com. Search “living room background” to start.

        Ivan, If youโ€™re on a budget try unsplash.com for free high quality photos.

      Great series! Hawaiki Keyer is an IOS-only program. Any suggestions for a Windows-based program that will work similarly? I’m an Adobe guy and Premiere Pro and After Effects could use help with their keying solutions.

      Hello Steve! Thank you for a very informative video. I really appreciate your update to show more detail in the problem areas! Now, I understand what you mean by the “jaggies,” and the sizzle. Thanks for being a great inspiration to us amateur videographers. I’m sure that all of us are very appreciative that you are sharing your expertise here, in your videos, and also on your website. Great work, sir!

      P.S. To correct previous comment, to avoid confusion: Not a lot of experience at my side ๐Ÿ™‚
