    Double Box with VideoBackground

    Would like to understand whats the best way to create a doublebox with a video background.

    I created a buffer with 300 frames into it. playing a loop background video.
    Also - I created a double box VirtualSet.
    Having a Tricaster Mini AE3.
    Whats the best workflow for that?

    Thank you in advanced,
    Tomer

    To do this, you probably aren't going to use a virtual set or at least you would need to setup the virtual set in the following manner.

    Without a virtual set:
    Set the M/E to the 'Default 2 Layer' set.
    Set the B channel to your buffer.
    Then use the A buffer and one of the keyers to place the two boxes on the screen, you can also add borders to these as well.

    With a virtual set double box:
    Your virtual set will need one of layer to be the full screen background as the A or B layer. Load the set, then use a keyer like in the method above to place the additional double box.

    Almost all the virtual sets I've made are double boxes with backgrounds as inputs. I just like it because it snaps everything into place quickly.

    Used to do it with virtual sets (Helix) but when the capability was available in Advanced Edition, quickly switched to that. The big difference is that you'll be able to not only customize to the exact look you want but also animate moves between boxes, if you'd like.

    Once you get the hang of using comps, it's very easy.
