Green screen on Windows XP Movie Maker

Last night I attended the very successful #TMETRU09 online flash meeting which was also been shown on JustinTV and followed on Twitter using the same hashtag. Read about it here.

My presentation (blogged about by Kathy Schrock)was the use of Green screen in iMovie'09 which led to many people enquiring about a similar effect in Windows for Movie Maker. Doug Belshaw posted a link in the FlashMeeting and also explained to have a look through Google to find how; so I did.

Here's the easiest to follow guide I have found and also a YouTube video demonstrating the principle. I'll definitely give it a go and let you know how it works. By the way, from what I gather it's best to use a well lit blue screen and not a green screen on MovieMaker.

The easiest Green Screen for iMovie explanation ever



Teachmeet's are a fantastic opportunity for those that know about using tech in education to demonstrate their uses to others. The EdTechRoundUp TeachMeet edition (#TMETRU09) is special in that it will be entirely online - through a flash meeting and video presentations that will be streamed on justintv.

My presentation is about using the green screen effect in iMovie09 for a Mac. Unfortunately this may mean that many other teachers may not be able to use this as they don't have a Mac. But for those that do I'm sure you will find my presentation useful and perhaps give you ideas how to use it with your class.  It's a mere 2 minutes. Let me know what you think.
