Green Screen Technology: Marbella Design Academy has its very own green screen for video effects. Through the magic of motion video and green screen technology our students are now able to create amazing motion graphics. Interior students can be scaled and transported into their own rendered scenes for video presentations. Fashion students can take their fashion shoots to exotic places and superimpose any digital or virtual background behind the models in their videos. Graphics students can create Hollywood style visual effects for their projects. Marbella Design Academy’s new green screen uses a technology known as ‘Chroma Keying’. This is the process of isolating a single color in an electronic image and using software to make that value transparent, allowing another image or background to show through instead. If the colour of the subject matches the green background too closely, those areas will also be removed, making a hole through which the background will show. For this reason bright green is used in the film industry as it is not a color traditionally worn by TV or Movie personalities.
