I need to be able to do something with backgrounds, but I cannot set up a greenscreen to do it.
Talent is in foreground, outdoor settings. Talent is making video content, but it is not possible to have the best background scenes. I need to be able to change the background without having to use a blue/greenscreen.
I have some familiarity with masking in Sony Vegas. I do go through a sequence in working with my greenscreen where I make the talent all white and the background all black, etc. I was thinking there might be some way to just extract the talent from the entire video and then place it over a background, or something along those lines.
Problem is it is just not possible do a best background settings in most cases.
With all the technology we have nowadays I believe there has to be a way to alter the backgrounds without using a greenscreen.
I'm not quite sure how to go about it, but I need to figure out some way to just record the talent on the spot. I need to ignore the background and get the video of the subject. Then go into a editing software and take out the background and replace it. The replacement background can be a graphic or other not-so-complex background.
It would be best if I could use some kind of moving virtual background, but I think i could work with gradient that stayed the same throughout the video presentation.
Hope I've explained this well enough.
I was doing a video the other day and the background was just not workable with the subject matter of the video. There was all kinds of junk in the background and it was distracting. The talent just was not in best conditions for explaining the subject matter.
It is possible to get the talent to stand in one place with minimum of movement if necessary. It would be best if course, if the talent could walk in and out of the setting. Regardless, the talent wouldn't be an action figure.
I would sure appreciate some suggestions or workaround ideas for this.
