Long story short, I’m using a green screen and uploaded a video from OBS.
I want to add a static image behind myself while I’m talking. For some reason I can’t find the solution. I’ve had the static image in V1 or V2, added it to an audio track, tried using chroma key - simple, and nothing. I just need the static image to stay behind me as I’m talking. Any advice is appreciated.
Hi @MusicalBox , yes that’s correct. I was on OBS and used those settings to remove the background then exported the video to Shotcut. Would it work better if I did the green screen removal while in Shotcut instead?
Yes. With the current video, solid black needs to be turned transparent to see the background image under it. But removing black will probably create holes in any dark shadows, too. By letting Shotcut see the original green screen, Shotcut can distinguish between shadows and background by using color clues. Saving the green screen removal for Shotcut also provides opportunity to fine-tune the green removal parameters for the cleanest edges, rather than hoping for the best that OBS did a good job on the first try.
Thanks everyone, including @Austin@MusicalBox I appreciate it. I’ll use Shotcut green screen features instead. Only issue is I’d hate to record an entire video then realize Shotcut doesn’t do it that well. Any tips?
