Green Screen Software:
Currently we are using hardware solutions to record to DVD the placing of peoples’ heads, using green screen, on to animated bodies dancing to music. This is achieved by using a mixer deck, live linked green screen keying, playing a master copy of headless dancing characters, thro a DVD player, on to which peoples heads are superimposed. The keyed product is then recorded to another DVD system.
1. People/Green Screen/Camera…..
3. Mixer deck………4. DVD Recorder
[url removed, login to view] player (Headless characters)…
We wish to have a software solution for processes 1, 2 and 3 outlined above. (The creation of the animated videos is a separate item of which we have a stock library).
A self-contained application that will only additionally require a DV camera. All green screen processing will be done in real-time through the application. All pre-recorded animations to be stored on the hard drive too. I will create a fully functional front end which will take you step by step through the video process ie choose song, launch camera and record. The second part of the app will be for the end video distribution, I will create a custom compression tool, built into the app that will offer numerous compressions (ie phone, web, dvd) These files will then be available for distribution. The application will be dynamic, as more songs are added they are automatically available within the application. The GUI/Software Features:
Works in real Time
Operates on Windows XP
Works with any graphics card/input port
Must be able to use on a laptop/Desktop
Record to DVD
Able to send by internet/email
Able to send to mobile phone
Save to external/local hard drive

High quality resolution
Images will be displayed on plasma screens
Able to add songs easily to system/automatically
Easy to use GUI
Library Button… List of all video songs and their numbers in system database
Works on standard VGA adapters and monitors
Captures from motion video (any) using firewire
Must be able to use PAL or NTSC formats
Core code creation and development

Finally a little bit of legality.
We would expect all rights to the software to signed over to our company along with all intellectual property and full source codes (including the design source).
