chroma key backgrounds - stop motion green screen
ADDING STILL IMAGE BACKGROUNDS
With iKITMovie 4 you have access to a cool stop motion effect that allows you can change your backgrounds and replace them with images or videos from our library of images and video. This is called green screen stop motion or chromakey.
Simply animate your characters in front of a green or blue screen and later replace that color with our image / video or with one of your own.
Below we list the steps on how this is easily done.
STEP 1 & 2 - SELECT AN IMAGE FROM TIMELINE
Once you have captured all your images and you want to replace the background ( blue or green ) with an image follow these steps.
Firstly select the image in the timeline that has the green/blue background where you wish to replace with an image / video background.
Choose add background ( 2 in red in the diagram ). To bring up that floating menu select the image in the timeline and right mouse click.
Select “Add Background” or “Add Chroma Here” depending on the version of iKIT you have.
step 3 - Select chroma / background tab
Select the Background tab to display the library of image and video backgrounds
steps 4 to 7
Steps 4 to 6
Select Next once you have chosen your Foreground and Background images
Step 7 – Click on the Green or blue background behind the character. This selects the color you want to replace with your image.
step 8 to 10
Move the slider to the right until all of the blue or green is gone.
If all the color does not go then you may need to have better lighting on your set to avoid shadows.
You can click on the areas that do not disappear with a second slider if needed.
