Virtual Sets Testimonials
The format of our program is a 'news magazine' style, comparable to 60 Minutes or other in depth, hard hitting news programs. By the end of February 2010 we expect to have out first program aired. In the project development we used: Apple Final Cut Studio 2, Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Ultimatte AdvantEdge.
The biggest part of initiating a television program is finding the right aesthetic that fits the brand. Several days were spent doing 'virtual set research', looking at different software and design companies. It was quite clear which company had the best sets. CG4TV.com offered high resolution images that were vibrant and crisp to fit the professional, polished image we were looking for. The downloadable files with alpha channels, allowed our graphic designer to add elements, depth and realism. Due to budget constraints, our only option was to do all keying in post production. This would allow us to tweak our graphics and fit them into the virtual sets.
Matching camera angles proved to be a challenge, we were looking to do more than just a flat straight angle. It took a good deal of time to set up lighting and get the cameras to match the sets, but once this was accomplished, the results were very impressive. Shadows, zooms, and pans were layered in Apple Motion. This added to our post production time, but increased the realism to another level. The virtual set has really added to the production value and feel of the program.
We needed an instant low-cost solution to make our brand new This Week In Space show look like national television, even if it is actually being produced on a laptop. CG4TV.com's store had the perfect virtual set and a background for us. We now use it in every show for everything from titles to commercials.
In addition to this virtual sets were a great solution for our internationally renowned television anchor Miles O'Brien. Due to his busy globe-trotting schedule he cannot be at a real physical set at all. Now he simply carries an easy portable green screen with him, shoots his segments on the road, and we put him on the same set for consistency no matter where in the world he is that week.
Our minimal investment in CG4TVgreen screen backgrounds and virtual sets paid off in leaps and bounds. Our show had a meteoric rise to the top place in iTunes, caused Google/YouTube to ask us to partner with them, and attracted multiple established media outlets to embed in our show.
This Week In Space Producer and Correspondent
Dazzle Your Audience with Low Cost, Broadcast-Quality Virtual Sets
There’s a green screen revolution underway in videography. No longer the domain of plaid-coated 1970’s TV weather forecasters, green screen backgrounds and backdrops now fuel major motion pictures like the recent Star Wars trilogy, 300, Sky Captain and Sin City. Hollywood producers are no longer forced to build large, expensive sets. Instead, they can use green screen backgrounds and chroma key software to build top-quality virtual sets on computers, saving millions of dollars in production costs.
But that’s only part of the story. The revolution has spread far beyond the major motion picture studios. Today, using revolutionary virtual sets and other innovations like elastic backgrounds, anyone with a fast computer, decent video camera and an inexpensive, portable green screen backdrop can produce dazzling, professional-level results. What’s more, they can do it on a shoestring budget. As a result, sophisticated solutions using green screen backgrounds and virtual sets are showing up all over the place – in corporations, talk shows, schools, low budget TV productions and a host of other applications.
