Hi! I'm new to composite lab, and I was wondering where can I get those backgrounds shown in the presentations like the news studio or the moving train?

Both of those examples were custom made for those specific shots. The moving train was made by Sollthar for his film NightCast and is a computer generated and animated backdrop.

The news studio was a digital matte created using various still photos of our office (we've only actually got one TV).

If you're referring to the OTHER news studio, where the girl walks onto the raised platform, that was a virtual set provided by Virtualsetworks.com.

So some backgrounds you can purchase from places like that, or other stock footage websites, but most of the time you'll probably want to create your own.

Thank you very much! I founded some amazing backgrounds at visualsetworks but I don't wanna pay 100$ for a background, so I will create my own. Thanks again!
