Learn how to easily chroma key Adobe Stock green screen clips in Premiere Pro.

Search in Premiere Pro

Search for Adobe Stock in Premiere Pro using the Libraries panel.

Open the Libraries panel from the Window menu.

In the Libraries search bar, search for Adobe Stock footage using keywords.

You can hover your cursor over any image in your results to see Adobe Stock videos play previews in real time.

In our example, we found safari footage for our travel video by searching for “baby elephant,” “Savannah static camera view,” and “binoculars green screen.”

Once you’ve found Stock footage you like, simply right-click on the clips and license them from right inside Premiere Pro.

Note: You can also search for, license, and download footage on stock.adobe.com/videos.

Build your sequence

Create a new sequence, placing your green screen footage on V2.

Apply the Ultra Key Effect

Use the Ultra Key effect to easily key out the Stock green screen.

Drop the Ultra Key effect onto your green screen clip in the timeline.

With your clip selected in the timeline, choose the Effect Controls panel in the Source window. 

Locate and select the eyedropper tool in Effect Controls and click the green chroma key color in your Adobe Stock clip on the Program Monitor.

Drop your plates on V1

Add your video background plates to track V1.

In this case, it’s our Adobe Stock footage: first the shot of the savannah which will play behind our hero to place her in Africa. Then we’ll follow that with the shot of the baby elephant that our hero will see through her binoculars.

Fine-tune the look

Apply a slight blur to the background plate to make the composite convincing. We used a Gaussian Blur filter from the Effects panel on the savannah clip in the first shot with a Blurriness setting of 5 to help sell the effect.

It’s always a good idea to consider depth of field when compositing two images together like this.

Color correct

Use the Lumetri panel to color match your clips.

Switch to the Color Correction workspace by selecting Window > Workspaces > Color.

Use the powerful Lumetri Color controls to fine tune your color matching.

In this case, we corrected our subject’s skin tones to match the savannah shot behind her. We also matched the color of the grass on the savannah to the grass in the shot with the baby elephant.

In an Adobe Premiere Pro desktop screenshot, the editor uses the Lumetri effect controls to adjust the white balance temperature slider and a composited image of a woman on safari with binoculars shows in the Program Monitor

Play the video

Tap the spacebar to play your video through. Check for pacing and green screen artifacts.

Export

Export your video with a Premiere Pro preset for social media or desktop presentations.

We’re using a 1080p HD Vimeo preset that outputs a video we can easily upload to most social media sites.

In an Adobe Premiere Pro desktop screenshot, the editor selects the Vimeo 1080p HD Vimeo preset in the Export dialogue box for the .h264 format setting

You’ve sent your actor on safari without leaving your studio, using Adobe Stock footage and Premiere Pro’s simple green screen tools.
