A great about Adobe's green-screen workflow is that you don't have to wait until after the footage is all shot, and transcoded, and shifted to a drive to check it. You can actually check during the production stage. In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to perform a test key during production.
- One strategy that I am a huge proponent of,…is getting it right when you're shooting.…A lot of people say, "fix it in post",…but that's a lot more expensive…than shooting it correctly.…As such, I frequently find myself on set.…Sometimes it's because I'm directing,…and other times it's because I'm there as an editor.…What you're going to want to do,…is make sure on set that the footage is ready to key.…And fortunately, premier pro does a great job…of working with media files.…
This means that you could often…just pop in a memory card, maybe to an SD card slot…or using a dedicated card reader,…and perform a test key without even having…to go ahead and permanently import the footage.…Here's how.…Remember, when using your media browser,…it's very easy to browse directly to a memory card.…In this case, I've simulated this with a disc image,…but you would be able to quickly grab and find a clip,…and just import that into your project.…
This will add it quite easily to the project.…Now, what you can do is then check this.…
