The NewTek Virtual Set Editor 2 (Two Licenses) is a software application that lets you create a lifelike, virtual studio set, such as a newsroom, around one or more people/hosts/guests. You can choose from numerous virtual set presets and edit them or create your own sets from scratch. You can adjust color schemes, add custom artwork, reflective surfaces, camera movements, live video layers, and have live video bend with the curve of a wall. A feature called Animation Store Creator with a TransWarp effects engine will additionally let you add customized animated transitions with alpha channel and embedded audio, real-time cloth dynamics, warped animated 3D effects and transformations, and motion overlays. Virtual Set Editor simultaneously supports up to four live video sources that can be scaled, rotated, and even mapped to 3D shapes.
The program works in conjunction with a TriCaster. Just place a green screen behind yourself, plug a camera into the TriCaster, and the virtual set you select and design will fill in the rest. All HD versions of TriCaster are compatible. The green screen only has to be big enough to cover the person or people in front of the camera.
The application comes with two licenses -- one for a TriCaster and the other for standalone use on a Windows-compatible PC. The standalone license is for editing sets outside of the TriCaster. Every TriCaster already has some virtual sets. The Virtual Set Editor just has many more and lets you edit them.
