Well, all that you have to do is to purchase any volume of their virtual sets and you get this tutorial included. You can purchase using this page.

Ummm... I'm sorry, but I took a look at some of their virtual sets, and didn't want to purchase them. I use 3D Software ard could produce near photosrealstic results in a short amount of time. I just would like to know the concept behind the effect.

Thanks,

Btw, on the video, one of the shadows is backwards.

Well, the placement of shadows or reflections can be positioned anywhere.
Sidewards, backwards or Forwards.
Well, you need to pay for that if you really want to know that.

I'm sorry, but that doesn't look good at all.

Not to mention, the bluescreening is horrible. What did they use, Premiere? razz

Yes, I also noticed a spot where the shadow was going the wrong direction and was upside down. I have premeire and the bluecreen is awful. I'm seriosly considering buying Chromonator. I just want to make sure I'm able to get a good greenscreen setup first.

Anway, thanks. I looked at the tutorial for Chromy, and then remembered. I heard about that method numerous times so for me its no surprise. You just duplicate the person being greenscreened, scale rotate, and reposotion, to the right place, and then make it completely black and blured for shadows, or for relections drop the alpha, and possibly, distort.

Thanks anyway,
