- Superimpose Characters on Different Backgrounds with the Included Green Screen
- Big-screen movies and TV shows constantly superimpose people over other backgrounds-ranging from "the weatherman effect" to alternate locations to exotic sci-fi scenes. This chromakey or "green screen" effect is achieved by shooting talent in front of a special green screen, then knocking out the green background while editing over a new background. Pinnacle Studio Ultimate not only lets you do the same with your movies, but Pinnacle Studio Ultimate includes an actual green screen to get you started.
