I am curious as to where fxhome got the backgrounds they used in their video. to be exact the news one in the video found http://fxhome.com/visionlab-studio (at the 7 second mark)

is this something they sell?

Also being very new I am not sure about something so I am asking. when attempting a greenscreening
can the image of a person walking around in front of a greenscreen be put in front of a pre-filmed sequence of the beach? or does it have to be a still image?

please forgive the newb questions

I'm not sure exactly where they got it, but I do know it isn't something that FXhome distributes.

Greenscreen was actually a process originally developed for combining multiple videos, and was adapted for use with still images later on. So yes, it is entirely possible to use video backgrounds with greenscreen footage, in fact, that is probably the most common use they are put to.

All the greenscreen does is remove portions of the layer, based on color (green, in this case). Once those areas are gone, whatever is below those areas will show through, whether it is a still image or a video.

Good to know as I will soon need to shoot a video of a man shooting another man outside by a bridge. Living in NYC you can imagine how that wouldn't fly very well and I cant afford the 4K permit required to shoot.
thanks again
