I am trying to use chroma key functionality to add multiple background images/videos. Basically, three files. One is the MAIN video shot on a green screen. The second is a STATIC background image (JPG) of a living room scene. The third is a video file, we’ll call SUB video. I want the STATIC living room to be the main background, but then have the SUB video file taking up a portion of the screen, essentially “between” the living room background and my green screen actors on the MAIN video. Almost like there is a TV behind them and I’d fill that space with video.
I can have my static image in the background and my SUB video taking up a portion of the screen and the actors show up. But, the SUB video image is in front of a portion of my actors faces. I have resized the SUB video to by smaller, and moved my actors to be smaller and out of the way. Essentially, moving them all to their own little portion of the screen. But what I really want is to not have to resize my actors. I just want the sub video to appear behind them, but still in front of the static living room background image.
I have video 3 as my green screen video with the actors and the static image as Video 1 and SUB video as video 2. Started with SHOTCUT version 18.11.13 and just upgrade to 19.01 and had same results. Any thoughts?
