View Full Version : Trying to get alpha channel in DDR on Live Set

01-22-2009, 12:07 PM
Hey there, we use the LiveSet - Demo Studio to record financial reports to air on the local tv station. Right now we have a jumpback playing in the DDR which goes in a tv monitor that is in the shot. As the talent talks about different things in his report we have been overlaying them in SpeedEdit over the background that is recorded. Now since he stands partially in front of the screen we can't have them take up the whole monitor, so it is obvious they aren't playing in the screen. I am trying to figure out a way that we can edit in what will be in the monitor after the recording is done. I've tried putting a green fill in it, then chroma keying it out, but when we dissolve from the tight shot to the wider shot it messes up during the transition. I've also tried putting a targa and rtv in the DDR that were straight alpha channels.
Any suggestions?!?!
