- Hi, my name's Rich Harrinton. And welcome to this class on Adobe Green-Screen Workflow. I'm going to be taking a look at several different techniques today that I'd like to share with you. And it's all practical stuff. We're going to start out looking in Premiere Pro, talk about getting the footage organized and when we're going to key there. Then we'll graduate into After Effects and take a look at some of the advanced tools. We'll also explore third party solutions as well as jump into Photoshop to create custom backdrops. There's a whole lot here and these are techniques that I use in my workflow. So, I'll share with you practical advice to get the job done, that you can immediately put into action in your studio and for your clients.
