Many creative marketers are coming up with creative ideas to host and run events keeping in mind the government laws & regulations regarding COVID-19. In this article, we will discuss a few creative event ideas which might help you to get back on track.
What is a Virtual Green Screen Event
After the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw a shift in the event industry. Many photo booth owners & event marketers have started virtual events or virtual booths. If we talk about virtual booths then it’s nothing but adding some effects, digital backdrops to an existing video or images. This is very common but nothing special to be honest.
A virtual green screen event takes virtual booths to the next level. Using a green or blue screen in the background the users take a video. It can be any normal video or it also can 180 multi camera videos or 360 videos. After the video has been taken using Cor2tect’s virtual 180 multi camera software you can remove the background and place any still or animated background.
This is the core function of the virtual green screen events, with the option of putting any background on your video. You may ask ok there are tons of software out there for background removing so why use this software? A valid question and we will get your answer when you move to the benefits part. Now let’s discuss the type of Virtual Green Screen Event.
Types Of Virtual Green Screen Event
Now there is no definite type of virtual green screen event. But depending on the type of video we can categorize them in mainly three types.
1. 180 Multi Camera Video:
As the name suggests 180 multi camera covers 180 degree curved angle and this type of bullet time effect is ideal for the brand activations and weddings as fewer cameras are needed for building a rig for 180 bullet time effect. Multi camera 180 photo booths are quite popular among event organizers, photo booths, and live event need as you can create some stunning 180 effects utilizing just 6 to 18 cameras. This type of bullet time effect is the most popular as it is easy to build the rig and costs less.

2. 360 Booth Video:
If you want to feel like a celebrity this is the perfect photo booth for you. This is a spinning machine with a camera that shoots the subject on the center from 360-degree angle. It is as simple as that. These kinds of photo booths are quite popular in countries like the USA, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapour, and so on. In recent years we have seen the use of 360 photo booths in weddings, product activation, and experiential marketing events. If compared with bullet time photo booths 360 photo booths have fewer investments and are easy to set up, this is the sole reason why we have seen a shift towards this innovative photo booth.
3. Other Videos:
Apart from 180 multi camera booths & 360 video booths, there are normal videos that can also be used for the virtual green-screen effect. Take a boomerang video for example. A simple video that plays forwards & backward to create an effect. This type or any other video type can be used for the virtual green-screen effect. It all depends on the needs of the client.

Back to the question, we asked earlier why use virtual green screen event software when you can do it using any other software?

The idea for Weddings:
