Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using green-screen effects, part of iMovie 10.0.2 Essential Training.
…>> One of the more fun features you'll find in iMovie, is its ability…to superimpose one clip over another using a green screen or blue screen effect.…To accomplish this effect, one of your clips…has to include a green or blue background.…iMovie can automatically remove the green or blue parts of the scene, letting you…see through those parts of the footage, to the footage from the clip underneath it.…I'm going to import some footage from my exercise files.…First I'm going to create a New Event, and I'll call it Green Screen.…And…I have some footage on my desktop that I'll bring in.…
I go to Import, go to my desktop.…There's green screen I'll just Import All.…So to accomplish this effect, you have to be…shooting in front of a green or blue background.…And it has to be one of those two colors, and not any other color.…And the brighter and more saturated the green or blue, the better.…And even though you can buy green screen paints and backdrops, there's really…no need to spend a lot of money, or to get all fancy.…
