Place custom created content in a video backdrop for easy and accessible ways to vary content programming for advertising and promotion.
Search on Adobe Stock
Search for “vintage television green screen” on the Adobe Stock home page.
Note: You can also search for and license clips directly inside Premiere Pro within the Libraries panel.
Import your footage
In the Project panel, or inside a Bin, right-click and choose Import.
Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you downloaded the licensed Adobe Stock clips, and select them.
Place the green screen clips on your sequence
Drag and drop green screen clips to V2 on your sequence.
Apply the Ultra Key Effect
Use the Ultra Key effect to easily key out the Adobe Stock green screen.
Drop the Ultra Key effect onto both of your green screen clips in the timeline.
Layer and adjust your footage
Place your own footage on the timeline, on a video track below the green screen clips.
Select your clip in the timeline and go to the Effect Controls panel. Click once on Motion to select it, which gives you a bounding box around your footage in the Program Monitor. You should see your footage on the vintage television, where the green screen used to be.
Grab the corners of your bounding box, and drag them to fit the television.
If you’re using the green screen clip with multiple televisions, as we are, you’ll need to move that clip up to V16 in order to make room for all the cloned clips.
Clone your own footage on the first 15 Video tracks, and as above, use Motion to scale and position them behind each screen in the clip.
Play the video
Tap the spacebar to play your video through.
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 drop into a PowerPoint presentation right from our computer.
Your video is ready to upload to social media. If you prefer, you could cut this timeline into any other Premiere timeline you’re working on in order to include it in another project.
You’ve quickly given a vintage ’80s feel to your vintage ’80s series!
