How to take a google IMAGE and screen just some parts of it?
For example, an image of a shark tank, how to open just the WINDOWS
Go from this:
1.Go to google images and type “Green Screen”
Find something like this
Click on it to make it big then drag to desktop
- Find a photo. In my case, I chose an underwater sea capsule. Dragged it from google images to desktop
- Open Photoshop. For your first layer, put in the green screen
- Layer new layer, for your second layer, put in your photo
5.Now we need to “cut out” the windows. You can do this with the ERASER
Or LASSO or MAGIC WAND.
I used the Magic wand. Click on the windows with magic wand. If you get an error message, go to eraser, erase what magic wand highlights, After you do that once, you should be able to just click with the magic wand and hit delete key on keyboard.
6.Once you have “cut out” the windows, save this as a JPEG
(File- save as- name it and change format to JPEG)
7.Now, drag jpeg into FINAL CUT PRO (for imovie- google green screen directions)
8.I downloaded a video of sharks swimming. I did this by using keepvid.com
I put the movie UNDERNEATH my jpeg photo
I also downloaded JAWS music using youtube to mp3 and put it on bottom.
- Now you need to KEY the green
Click on EFFECTS
Click on KEYING
Click on KEYER and DRAG AND DROP onto the jpeg
Now your sharks will SWIM by your windows.
Here is a photo of it
You can add ANOTHER LAYER if you want. You and your friends can film each other gazing out the windows. As long as you are in front of a green screen, you can add it to Final Cut (a 4th layer) and you will be watching the sharks swim by!
