Jaw-Dropping Special Effects with Drew Kocak. kinemaster green screen tutorial

What’s up, guys! Welcome to the Post. My name is Drew Kocak. Now you Learn kinemaster green screen tutorial, and I run visual effects & editing Youtube channel, where I post my short films and tutorials. Most of my videos are based on teaching you how to edit travel vlog style visual effects.

Ones you might see in videos by Sam Kolder, Benn TK, or JR Alli That’s kind of my general niche, but I’m here on the KineMaster channel today to show you how to do this falling through the sky effect all on the KineMaster app.

All you need is a phone camera and a green screen. First, you have to set up your green screen. Make sure it’s long and tall enough for you to be able to lay across it without your limbs going over the edges; also, make sure to have enough space on the floor so you can lie entirely on the green screen itself.

Then set up your camera, press record, lie down on the green screen and do your best falling through the air impression. Yes! I know I look ridiculous doing this, but it will look cooler by the end of this video. Once you’re done, stop recording and trim the shot to your liking. You only need about 5 seconds of your green screen falling clip for this effect. And then open up the KineMaster app.

In the KineMaster app, tap the plus icon here to create a new project. Set your aspect ratio to 169 or whichever aspect ratio you would like to use for your video. Then select Media, navigate to your photos, choose your cloudy sky photo and press the checkmark. We’ve included a link to this dirty sky photo in the description below if you’d like to use the same one. Adjust it to fill the entire frame.

Press the checkmark. Next, select your cloud layer, press the three dots on the top left, and duplicate as a layer. Select your layer and drag it out to fill your entire screen. Now select the Keyframe button on the left of the screen and drag the layer to the very top, where you can see the top of the cloud photo.

Now navigate to the end of your Timeline and drag your photo up to see the bottom of the cloud photo. Let’s add a second Keyframe to that the background will move downwards with you as you fall.

Then select Layer Media and navigate to your green screenshot where you are pretending to fall. I will rotate it to be horizontal and use the Cropping tool so that only the green screen itself is visible. You were zooming a little bit here so that I can see it.

Just adjust it until all you can see is your subject and the green screen. Now drag your green screen back on the Timeline and size it the way you would like. I’m going to make it a little smaller. Then I’m going to angle it down a little bit, so I’m falling headfirst.

And now we use Chroma Key. Select enable and then adjust these sliders until the green screen is gone. You’ve got play around with this until you get the right balance. Shorten your clip, so it’s the same length as your cloud shots. Now add a Keyframe at the beginning of your clip by dragging your subject up to the top of the frame.

Then I’m going to drag myself to the bottom of the frame, so I fall through the entire screen. Now looks like a silly falling animation, but we’re going to add some additional effects to make it look more realistic. Go back to the sky layer, select Overall Animation, and select Floating. This makes the camera shake to intensify the effect.

Now add the same animation to your green screen clip. Last we need to add some clouds flying by, so it looks like we are falling through the clouds. Just search Google for a cloud PNG file or download the one I’m using here. It will be provided in the description below. Select Layer Media, go to your photos and add your cloud PNG.

Now size it however you would like, select AlphaOpacity, drop it down a bit, drag your cloud layer to the beginning of your Timeline and add some Keyframe animation. Select Keyframe, drag it down all the way, then move forward a couple of seconds. Make your cloud fly past you by moving it up into the second Keyframe.

Now when we watch this, we have a cloud flying by. We’re going to make several layers of this. So repeat the same process. Add the cloud photo, and change the Opacity and Speed of each one. This makes it look realistic with different kinds of clouds flying by because clouds come across different shapes and sizes.

So I’ll drag this off the frame, move forward a bit, then add a Keyframe for it when it starts flying past. Then I’ll move forward a few frames and drag it up past me, so it passes by. Now we have two clouds flying by! We are going to do this as many times as we need to create this effect. So keep repeating the process. (Vary your cloud size, Opacity, and Speed of Keyframe animation.) Once you have enough clouds added to your energy, you could additionally pre-render it.

I’m going to export it at 4K 2160p, High Quality. Now go to the home screen and start a new project in the same aspect ratio. Tap Media and add your exported clip to the Timeline. Tap on the hook, then tap the Speed tool.

To add to this video’s intensity, slide the Speed to 1.3 and play that back through. I think that looks a lot better because it’s way more intense like you falling through the sky! Last let’s add some sound effects for all the clouds flying by. Tap Audio and go to your SFX library.

I’ve downloaded Whoosh sounds effects from the KineMaster Asset Store. I’m going to add a variety of Whoosh sounds where the clouds are flying by. Additionally, you can add some reverb to these SFX using any of the Reverb tools presets.

I’m going to add a variety so that each Whoosh has a different sound. Once you are done adding all your other clouds and sounds effects, playback the clip, and the result is complete. The last step is the final export! So tap the Export and Share icon in the upper right corner.

Choose the resolution. I’m going to export to 4K and High Quality. And then your final video will be saved directly to your camera roll. And that’s it!
