Green Screen Wizard
allows you to take two sets of files, a foreground set and a background
set, and multiply the two together. For example if I had five backgrounds
and three different foregrounds then I would have 15 images when the process was
Wizard Pro stores all of the settings that created a file in the file itself.
Refer to the explanation of GSW files earlier. The batch process can use these files
in three ways. It can take the current image and just change the settings. It can
take the current image and replace the settings and the background, or it can take
the current image and replace the foreground and replace the settings.
Lets try a few
example is to take the current image and replace the foreground image in the file.
You would do this, for example, if you took photos of a baseball team and wanted
to use the same background with each photo. To do this we specify the directory
that has a foreground image as we’d like to merge. Then we specify the output
directory where we would like them to go, and then we start the batch. The
process will continue until every file in the batch folder has been merged.
This dialog shows
the last file processed:
Here is the output
from the batch run.
take our current image and replace the background with all of the backgrounds found
in a given directory. We do this by selecting the background directory and
running the background process.
If we specify
both a foreground directory and a background directory, then for every foreground
an image is created with every background.
see what would happen if we specify a directory that has GSW files in it.
We choose to
let the GSW file override the background by checking the “Use GSW Background”.
what the GSW files looked like.
Here is the output
from the GSW batch.
Note how the
foreground image is scaled and shifted by the GSW files. Also text and overlays
can be added. With this ability you can create your best “looks,” and
then create output for each look.
Once a batch
process has created all of its files, the process terminates. If you check
the box that says “Keep Checking for New Files,” after the last file
is process the batch system will sleep for 1 second, and then it will look to see
if there are any new files in any of the specified folders. If it finds one or more
it will process them and then display the last result in the last result box.
This is a handy feature if you’re doing tethered shooting. Every time the
camera stores a new file in a watched directory that file will be processed and
