Green Screen Videos
Green screen or chroma key video and images use an editor to replace the green with an image or video as the background.
Examples for Green Screen Videos in your Class
- Use a photo of a CPU or an atomic model or a graph — you can stand in front of it and explains its parts like a weatherman
- Use “B roll” video footage as your backdrop for whatever topic you are speaking on
- Replace the green with a solid color and add text to the video in post production
- Sample video from Duke University of Professor lecturing in front of presentation slides.
