Animated video in Content library with green screen

Jun 02, 2023

I found several animated characters in the Content Media library 360 videos and they have a green screen.  I am looking for a transparency tool under Options so I can add the animated character to my choice of background.  I can't find it.  Is it not the case?   I have looked through the forums without success. How do I use the animated video?  I will upload a screen shot.

to remove the green background you need e.g. Adobe After Effects -> "Chroma Keying"


  • there is no way to integrate videos with transparence in storyline
  • storyline uses mp4 for videos
  • mp4 can't do transparency

these videos in the content media library are just videos with a green background - they are supposed to show a green screen scene

Thank you very much. It is unfortunate that the background selected is green if SL has no transparency tool. Green screen is kind of an industry standard, I think. I have Premiere Pro and I believe I have used a green screen tool. But it is good to know about available online tools like OBS studio. I have used Davinci Resolve with success as well. Thank you both, Math Notermans and Jürgen Schoenemeyer.
