Visual Special Effects for video, film, and TV are put in place as part of a post-production process. The physical video is worked on after filming. This book and course serve as a solid foundation to understand how visual special effects work.

Green Screen Special Effects and Chroma Key
3 Lectures 14:13

Our background will be a still image where the subject will be placed in front. Backgrounds should have nice colors and a variety of colors. Backgrounds of an inside scene is more realistic as it would match the subject that most likely would be recorded inside in front of a green screen. A background of a beach would awkward if it is obvious that the subject’s lighting appears indoors due to recording inside in front of a green screen.

Preview 04:19

The subject is photographed in front of a bright green wall or bright green curtain. The green color is later removed by computer.

Animation
3 Lectures 09:22

We have talked about placing a subject with transparent surrounding in front of a background. Animated motion is done by changing the subject image position or using alternate image.

Animation
05:01

Your presentation or PowerPoint will have several slides that will have the position of the subject in different locations. Going from one slide to the next, you’ll have the impression that the subject is moving from one location to another. The slides will be combined into a video with a dissolve transition between slides to give it a basic animation of movement.

More Animation
02:22

We have spent a lot of time talking about the visual special effects for your video. What about the audio? In animation, audio is recorded separately. With motion video recording, the audio is recorded at the same time. The recording of the animation can be made in a variety of ways.
