Online Marketing/Do you know how this is done?


Hi Jared

How do I make different background special effects moving images in my rhetoric video like this guys has done at or how do I make a still image appear behind me like I'm there while I'm talking on my video? I know it's possible because I've seen others on youtube do it. Thanks for any knowledge you have that you can share with me about this. I'm interested to know what you have to say.

Hi Sterling,

thanks for reaching out. This is more of a production questions, but I know from personal experience that there are a few methods:

1. You can use a projector, or a television screen, but the quality is usually poor and you can get vertical refresh lines due to the unsynchronized framerate;

2. Use a green screen / compositing.

A green screen simply means you record your video with a bright green screen behind you. Once completed, you composite in your background - basically you tell the program to fill in the background animation or graphic "only in the green areas". If you do not know how to do this and dont own editing software like Premiere, you may have to hire a company to do this. Green screen compositing is what they use on news sets as well.

I hope this helps!
