Using Videomerge in Premiere Elements 7




Videomerge is a new effect in Premiere Elements 7.
It essentially works on the same principle as the Chroma Key effect - re-defining an area of color or range of colors in your video as transparent - but it does so with more automatic functionality. And, although the term "automatic feature" is generally synonymous "unable to live up to its promise", Videomerge is surprisingly effective and easy to use.
