Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you downloaded the licensed Adobe Stock clips, and select them.

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.

Export

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