    Virtual set from Video

    Would like to get some ideas for the right workflow:
    Planing on a virtual set on a stage with 3 angles.

    Angle 1 - infront of the stage.
    I can see the heads of the audience moving.
    Having a big screen on the stage.
    How can I use this video with a virtual set. keeping it as a video?
    Its more alive when the heads are moving. and the lights on the chair is changing.

    Photoshop is static.
    Should I use buffer or another idea?

    Thank you,
    Tomer

    The main issue is that you only have 2 inputs for the set. A Input and B Input.
    'A' would be the talent and 'B' would be the video if you want. In that case you could couldn't have anything else, like over the shoulder graphics or anything on a screen if you had one on stage.

    One way you could accomplish this would be to have the video of the audience heads in a DDR and key that over your virtual set. You would lose a DDR, but you wouldn't always have to be seeing the heads of the audience. You could keep that for one camera shot.
    I can't think of any show that I've seen when you can always see the audience.

    Thanks Stream.

    Planning to have lectures in front "as if" in front of an audience. TED-style.
    Will try it with a buffer - to animate the video. (the only limitation is 300 frames).

    Looking for other ideas how to accomplish that...
