The very first step includes recording of a video against green screen, this video will have the moving objects or the actors. There are certain things that you should take in account while recording the videos. First of all, there should be sufficient light while recording the videos against green light. The most appropriate thing would be to record the videos in the sun light. Secondly, please make sure that you use the green screen of appropriate color. You can find green screen from different online stores. If you want to create an illusion video of an object, you can use the green paper to have the same effects. Once the green screen video is recorded, keeping the same frame, remove the green cloth and record the background. Make sure the frame of both videos matches to each other, otherwise the resultant video will not have the perfect green screen effect. Use a video camera or the latest smartphone to record the videos of both scenarios.

More Details about Green Screen

Green screen effect is basically used in the Hollywood movies to create the beautiful videos against green background. It is also used to create an illusion which will result in a magical video such as a person sitting in the air, in water or anywhere else. Normally, we know that none of this is possible in the real life but the Green screen effect will create an illusion in such a perfect way that people will think that it is totally genuine. Moreover, you can also create a video showing that you are in faraway land which will look like reality. For example: record a video in the United States against green screen and find a video of Eifel Tower on the internet and finally combine these videos in a perfect way to create the best illusion effect. Moreover, you can also create a duplicate person effect using the same green screen effect.
