Having a television studio in my home allows me to experiment when I get the urge. That’s what happened last night.
My control room, a Tricaster Mini, has a virtual set feature built in. With a camera and green wall you can insert the ‘talent’ in the middle. Hit a button and my non-zooming camera zooms in. It all looks so real even though none of what you see with me is with me!
That’s the problem. If there’s one thing wrong with the virtual sets, they look too good. Too expensive. Too expansive. Unbelievable because they look unaffordable.
More to explore. More to learn.
I poked my head out tonight and told Helaine, “It’s pretty cool to have a studio in the garage.”
