If in the previous article I have written about how to make a T-Rex video using the green screen method on Wondershare Filmora, this time I want to give a simple tutorial on how to make the same video but by utilizing 2 (two) green screen layers.
If there is only 1 (one) green screen file and 1 (one) video background file, the composition that can be made in Filmora is only 1 (one) green screen layer. But with a few additional techniques, we can use more than 1 (one) green screen layer as in the example of making a video which I will discuss how to make as in the following steps:
- Download the free-running cloud footage at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V83DKxsLTso as a background for the video composition that we will create.
- Download the green screen video from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKaVplI2QKQ to retrieve the T-Rex profile which will be used as the first green screen layer.
- Download the green screen or footage Jakarta at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaVxg3AcU9w which will be used as the second layer of the green screen.
- Open the Filmora application.
- Import the two files above to the Filmora media library as processing material for making video compositions in the next step.
- Drag the walking cloud footage on the main video layer in the Filmora timeline (as background).
- Drag the green screen of the T-Rex as the first green screen layer.
- Drag the green screen footage to Jakarta as the second layer of the green screen.
- Remove or delete unnecessary parts of the green screen video.
- Change the green screen file size according to the composition of the video, using the menu [Video] – [Transform] – [Scale]. Scale the image as desired, including moving the image to the right position.
- Activate the [Chroma Key or Green Screen] menu on both green screen files and make necessary modifications to the offset, tolerance, edge thickness, and edge feather settings, to obtain a balance or colour match between the files that have been combined.
- If necessary, also adjust the tone for each layer by selecting the [Color] – [Tone] menu, then changing the parameter values for Contrast, Saturation, and Brightness.
- Add other additional effects such as T-Rex sound, the sound of a car running on the streets of Jakarta, and others. Also add intro and outro files, as well as the YouTube channel logo as a watermark.
- After finishing the editing process, the final step is to export the final editing results to be uploaded to the YouTube channel. The final result of the composition in the example I made, can be seen in the video below.
