The Double Trouble Double Green Screen

I finally got the elevator pitch green screen YouTube trailer done right—I think. It took me 4 tries. The difficulty for me was getting the green screen video actually to open up in sync with the elevator doors. What you’re supposed to see are the elevator doors seemingly opening up to an interesting scene, which is a green screen production. See my April 1, 2022 post Quick and Dirty Green Screen post.

Recall the first one I did. I moved into the elevator and stayed there where I gave my elevator pitch. See my March 18, 2022 post, New Elevator Pitch. I’m sure a lot of people knew what was odd about that. I tried again a few times, each time not feeling right about the results.

I finally had a look at PowerDirector University Malik’s tutorial (the Land of Oz Effect mentioned in the description, along with a link) on it and realized what I had to do. I actually made two green screens. I made one the right way with me giving the elevator pitch and superimposed on an old video of Niagara Falls which Sena and I visited on a vacation.

Then, I made another green screen production using the free elevator clip green screen download and Niagara videos. What I kept doing wrong was placing the elevator introduction and the Niagara clips on the wrong tracks in the PowerDirector video editing software. When I reversed them (the downloaded free elevator clip below the clip of me giving the elevator pitch at Niagara Falls , it worked—with a little nudging of the Niagara clip.
