Add background to timeline (project)Then add green screen footageDrop on top of background – chooseGreenscreen from optionsCrop green screen footageUse colour grading (choose Video inInspector – double click on clip) to makethe green as even as possible
Using green screen shapes to break up the screen Create your pattern in Photoshop –first make a freeze frame (right click on clip – make a freeze frame) Right click on clip and open in finder then choose Photoshop to open the freeze frame. This gives you a template.In Photoshop create a new layer and hide or delete the freeze frame clip. Create your shapes using a bright green (refer to iMovie for exact tone) If you want to use several layers of green screen footage (different colours or sizes or completely different footage) create layers in Photoshop and then hide them for each iMovie green screen layer before saving as a PNG
There is an iMovie bug which means that your shapes will have adark, seriated edge when added. There doesn’t seem to be a way around this so… use the effect. Add your own black borders to the shapes. Make the shapes rough around the edges – add Gaussian blur to try different effects
For each layer, add your green shapes.‘Share’ the movie (save the clip as a movie) and then import the movie in as green screen footage (as before) dropped on top of whatever additional footage you want to be visible. Export as a movie again and import as much as you need to.
