Chapter 6. Shooting for Compositing & Streaming

Chapter 6. Shooting for Compositing & Streaming

Two applications require specialized shooting techniques: shooting for compositing and shooting for low bitrate streaming distribution. As you can probably guess from the title, this chapter addresses these issues.

Compositing sounds complicated, but really it’s not. Simply put, it’s the process of merging two videos (or a single video and still image) to display one combined video. Compositing is also called “overlay,” as in laying one video over another, “chromakey” or “color key” where you use color values to discern how to combine two videos, or more specifically “green screen” or “blue screen” when using these colors in the compositing process.
