Green screen photo smaller than video photo


Recommended Posts

What is the resolution of the source files?   What are the export settings?  What version of VP is being used?

Share the project and someone will check it out.  This is quick, easy and can be private.  Just follow these steps...

1.  With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left.  Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER.  Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER.
2.  Locate the saved, numbered folder. No need to upload the export or VPJ files.  Upload it to a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.*
3.  Get a shared, public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. Click the blue "Change to anyone with the link..."  Then click COPY LINK | DONE.
4.  Paste that link here, or click the folder, above top-right in this forum, and message it to me.  This is private and won't be shared.
*    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.

Thank you for responding.  We are new to this, but it can get frustrating really easy.

The background has dimensions of X628, aspect ratio of 300:157

The greenscreen photo has dimensions of 480x640 and aspect ratio of 3:4

We are just exporting as a video file which says Resolution " Auto Match Content (475X634)

Thanks for the help

Thanks, but are not comfortable with sharing the photos.  Is there a guide to understanding how to make the photo with a green screen match a background image?

Shouldn't the preview match the export?

What version of VP is being used?  Test other export aspect ratios.  Also try the CROP choice, instead of LETTERBOX, in the export settings box.

You need not share with the public.  Any project sent to me via personal messenger is private and will be discarded as soon as the issue is resolved.  Just click the folder at the top-right of this forum and direct the file to "borate."

The usual chromakey (green screen) procedure is to first place a background image.

Then overlay (higher track) the high-contrast image to be keyed.  Size and position it as desired.

Open the green screen effect and adjust settings.

The green (or whatever color was chosen to be keyed out) will vanish and the background will be seen in its place.

We did follow that procedure and it looks correct in the preview, but the background image shrinks upon export no matter resolution we use.  I will try to duplicate with another set of photos I don't care about sharing.

Apply the LETTERBOX effect to your background image.  image.png  See if that does the deed.

If using an old version try this.  For licensed users upgrades are free for up to six months from purchase date.  After that, VP will continue to fully function but a fee will be required in order to register the newest.  Retain your old install file and registration info.

You haven't stated your version #.  Try this one where those options are available.  Or try zooming the BG image larger.

Don't believe the aspect ratio options were available in that version.  Upgrade if possible to the one linked above.  Even if unlicensed, you should be able to test the suggested scenarios.  Export at AVI usually succeeds in unlicensed releases. Retain any installer files or registration code.

Best bet is to share the content privately.
