Green Screen Background 3-Box

A green screen background 3-box designed with negative space in the lower third of the frame for your text or graphics. This green screen stock footage clip has three key-able insert areas for your source content. When keying your video or still frames a reflective green area has been designed into the clip to allow for the compositing of their reflections. Common uses for this style of clip would be in a coming up news bumper reveal, a multi-person interview, as well as a montage of sports highlights with supportive text in the lower third.

This green screen background 3-box stock footage clip loops seamlessly with an initial duration of 19 seconds. It was created in a 16-bit color workspace for render output to ProRes 422 HQ codec @100.

Stock Footage Transition Sound Design

We’re often asked how to accentuate stock footage transitions with sound design for greater effect. When working on your stock footage transition sound design a few basic core factors come into play. These are how the transition is being used and in what context. One such use may be within a sports broadcast. In this case the sound design is accentuating a change of content, such as to a full page graphics panel or to and from a hi-light replay. This scenario may call for powerful SFX if being used during a hockey telecast as opposed to a more subtle swoosh type sound effect for a tennis match when used for a replay transition. If your project’s main body of work is an interview with a corporate CEO and you need to support the interview with full page graphic panels, then your transition sound design effects would most likely need to be subtle. In this scenario they most likely would be mixed with the CEO’s mic during his responses. Here a very subtle sound effect mixed under the main mic could put a subtle accent on your supporting graphics.

Once you’ve determined the style for your transition sound design you can then move on to determining how the visual aspects of the transition reveal themselves on the front end and back end of the transition. In the following example we’ve designed a lens flare that rises and flys toward the viewer to reveal the abstract elements. Here a sound effect that has a swell or build up helps to accentuate that motion. For the reveal a more defined lens flare flys out in a sweeping arc as it comes towards the viewer before flying away on the reveal. We’ve also chosen a sound effect with a ‘snap hit’ built into it to further accentuate the reveal point of the transition. We believe this type of transition sound design has an ‘impact style’ and thus more appropriate for situations where you’re looking to add a substantial accent in your sound design during the edit point transition.

We hope this provides some insight into the general considerations you might take when adding sound effects to stock footage transitions in your projects. You can find some great sound effects at RevoStock.com

Stock Footage As Basis For Facebook Cover Photo

Facebook’s new Timeline layout emphasizes a large area at the top of the page known as the Cover Photo. In addition to simply using an existing photo that you have on your Facebook page you can also get very creative and design a custom Cover Photo utilizing Royalty Free Stock Footage. In the example below we went to our favorite compositing application, Adobe After Effects, to demonstrate how you can design a custom branded graphic image for the area at the top of your Facebook Timeline home page.

Facebook Cover Photo Stock Footage Design

This example utilizes a Royalty Free Stock Footage clip from our portfolio at RevoStock.com. We then color corrected it, added a VCP lens flare with a blending mode of Screen, and finally added our name and tag line. The profile image graphic in the lower left has been added here to show you how both would work together when Facebook inserts your Profile Image on top of your Cover Photo. It all starts with a Royalty Free Stock Footage video clip from which you have multiple snapshot images to choose from for …Read More

Retro Look in Stock Footage Transition

Back in the Day… transition effects on live sporting events were limited. The cost effective DDR technology to playback stock footage or custom designed clips hadn’t been developed yet… so Technical Directors switching live sports often used a quick flash frame of a color background (set to white) for their transitions into and out of replays. This was achieved often with a cut (1 frame duration) to a full frame of white background followed with a programmed dissolve to the next source (videotape machine, graphics panel, or live camera) . This dissolve ranged around 6-8 frames which in effect gave the look of a flash bulb going off… and as it faded away, a different visual was revealed. These transition numbers might vary a bit depending on the TD and the actual elements but for the most part this was IT. The hardware switchers of the day had non-volatile programmable effects memory which by today’s standards would be quite limited but allowed for this level of effects programming with a ‘one-button push’. Nonetheless, back then… this is what the Tech Directors had to work with while switching live shows.

As a Technical Director, I have to say those days were quite interesting as we looked for ways to push the limitations of our toolsets to add production value to our shows. Drawing on a bit of that old school look is this 32-bit stock footage clip with a bit of that retro feel while adding dissipating particles on the reveal.
