Worried that your backdrop is causing “leakage” ?


Suffering from a small backdrop? No problem.

In this video I show you how to improve your home video studio potential by way of a simple “mask” technique during edit.

As you can see, James has a very popular 4 foot fabric backdrop, with some cowboy lighting. This is an easy and inexpensive setup, but can often leave one with a little “leakage” of space on the lower corners when using a wider shot.

The solution is simple: By creating two layers of static images from the original video, one can mask the missing places in the backdrop without having to change your compact home studio setup. It’s super easy and does not require any special editing skills or software beyond what you are using now, such as Vegas Video or ScreenFlow, or iMovie, etc.
