Ojai, CA (PRWEB) April 7, 2007
lynda.com, the leader in self-paced digital media and design training, today introduced Blue and Green Screen Production Principles.
The technology used for compositing blue and green screen has improved to the point where a chroma key matte can be pulled off almost anything. However, the better the original photography and setup, the better the matte extraction and composite will be. Whether the goal is to shoot a blue or green screen for compositing, or just to get familiar with terms and techniques, Blue and Green Screen Production Principles has the information needed. Pete Kuran goes behind the scenes to teach the processes of this popular film technique. Blue and Green Screen Production Principles is an excellent accompaniment to Digital Video Principles in the lynda.com Online Training Library™.
"We are known for software training, but our customers also need the principles-based education that makes the software easier to use. Starting with the best possible footage makes it a whole lot easier to work with compositing video using digital tools. This is a great example of how to apply knowledge from the outside world of videography and film to the desktop world of digital editing tools," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
