As I understand it CompositLab doesn't come with any virtual backgrounds or virtual sets.

We need to find a good virtual newsroom and other virtual backgrounds.

Thanks for any suggestions on where we can find such.

Well, it depends. Do you want a simple picture, a video, a 3D model, or something else? You'll need to elaborate. But, in my opinion, the best way to do it is yourself, especially since that way, it will be customized for your needs. You could paint one in Photoshop, model one in your 3D application, etc, etc.

If you don't want to do it yourself, however, here are a couple of sites:

To find 3D models, you can look here or here.

For free pictures, well, there's Google images.

For a video, I have absolutely no idea. wink
