I searched, and have not really found anything, here or Google / Bing.
I use Adobe Premiere Elements 9 and have an editing question.
When I capture video from my computer's built-in webcam, it does everything properly and imports it onto the timeline. But I want to be able to edit this video live as it comes into the program. The only way I can figure out how to edit it is to stop capturing and go into the timeline to edit, but then it's not live.
I want to be able to work with a green screen like a weather forecast, and it doesn't help if you can't have the video edited as it's coming in to see what's behind you live at the moment. I don't like having to capture the video of me in front of a green screen and guess where I'm pointing, then stop capturing and edit the video afterwards, because that's not how it's done in the television news industry, obviously.
That's not a feature of video editing, Sim. It's a process of video compositing -- a whole different process, and one way beyond the scope of most PC-based programs.
In fact, if you Google "live green screen" you'll see that there are a number of specialized devices for doing this type of work. Here's one of the more affordable ones -- and it sells for nearly $2000.
Video editing is a post production process. You work with your video AFTER it is shot.
>not how it's done in the television news industry, obviously
I don't think that industry uses a $100 program for what they do... as Steve said, you have to spend a LOT of $$
Even Premiere Pro does not "edit on the fly"
