Hi all, does anyone know how to add a video into a TV prop, which is at an angle? I can't seem to figure out out how to to make my green screen video fit into that box. :-)

Hi there,

To get that effect, you need to press CTRL+Shift on the keyboard and drag media on canvas. Do not use the handles.

This will put your media into 3D mode and you can get the look you desire.

I hope this helps!

I have no problem dragging it over the TV. The challenge I have is that the left side is taller than the right side. I need to tilt the video somehow to make the right side much smaller. Does this make sense?

Hi, yes, it does, I understand.
There is no way to directly crop or edit the video/image to fit in that space.

However, did you try that hotkey I shared to see if you could angle it in there?

Using that feature and fine tuning the look in the Visual Properties tab, I was able to come up with this look. I used a bit of the background in the original image and a border to give it a more polished look.



Here is another angle with more shear:



Others might have some other tips for you to try.

You want to manipulate the Y and X  rotation of the video.  You do this under the Visual Properties tab.

 I placed a 16 x 9 aspect ratio video inside of your frame and I got it pretty close. You can see the numbers I used in the image.

I forgot to mention an important step. You must also distort the video to get it to fit. This technique is know as corner pinning in Premier Pro and is more precise but the distortion is still unavoidable. The distortion is most cases is usually not very noticeable . See Image



Here's Premiere Pros handy work.

Joe, I tried your method and it worked great! I was able to leave the one at 0 (instead of -1) and it put it in there near perfectly. Thank you so much!!
