Falling Snow

Specific to Premiere Elements version 14

Falling Snow

Postby John Walker » Fri Sep 22, 2017 4:04 pm

Hi

Some time back, I downloaded your Falling Snow clip. White snow flakes on black background. Is there a way of superimposing the falling snow over a clip and leaving the black background transparrent?

I've tried various ideas but no success yet. If anyone knows - it'll be you guys :)

cheers

Which clip is that, John? I searched the products and didn't find any with that name. Is it the snowing video motion background on page 7 of the SD motion background >general category? If so, that one already has an alpha channel for transparency and you can simply place it over another track. If it's not that, tell us which one it is and where we can find it and I'll take a look.

Hi,

Thanks for replies. This is the file name. I think it came from Muvipix. It's an MP$ clip. I'm sure when I found the clip it mentioned being able to superimpose the snow but maybe I downloaded the wrong version.

That's not one of ours. I see a lot of versions of that on YouTube and other sites. I don't know which you have. It sounds like you have a version without transparency so the black is baked in. Try this: place the falling snow clip on the track above the one you want to show. With the falling snow clip selected, open the opacity effect and look for.blend mode. Select the screen blend mode. The black should drop out.

Thanks Bob - works a treat. I'd never have worked that out myself - must read a tutorial on 'Blend Modes'. Snow had a blue tinge so just had to lower saturation.
