Scenery? Scenery? We don't need to build no stinkin' scenery!
I've been meaning to try this little experiment for a while. Could I 'green screen' (chroma key) scenery onto an otherwise bare layout? With the help of a green fold-up school project display board from Wal-Mart I believe the answer is - yes.
I took a few quick clips in front of the improvised green screen and with the help of Corel Video Studio I added a panoramic picture that I took in the valley of the South Branch of the Potomac River. While not perfect in composition or execution, it works for a quick first attempt. Judge for yourself, with and without digital enhancement:
Don't click on 'HD" to turn on Hi Def mode unless you have a fast internet connection and a fast computer.
Of course there would be ethical questions surrounding doing this without full disclosure. But I can see the utility of using this technique to try out scenery treatments.
