iMovie '11: Use a green-screen or blue-screen effect to superimpose video You can record video in front of a green or blue backdrop, and then “cut out” the subject and superimpose it into another video clip. This is called a “green-screen” or “blue-screen” effect. For example, you could record a friend acting scared in front of a green or blue backdrop, and then place that video into a video clip showing an angry bear, so that your friend appears to be standing, terrified, next to the bear. You can also drag the green-screen or blue-screen clip over a solid-color or animated background clip. If the subject of your video is green or is wearing green, you should record in front of a blue background. Likewise, if the subject of your video contains blue or is wearing blue, you should record in front of a green background.

15 Best Content Curation Tools, Software, and Sites What is Content Curation? For the unversed, a quick content curation definition is the act of finding top performing content with existing social proof from a huge collection of areas and purposefully sharing this top content with your own specific audience for their benefit.
