The weather forecast uses a Green Screen and So Can You

Have you ever wondered how the weather forecast works?

The weather presenter stands in front of a big green screen, and points as if they can see the map. In reality, the presenter is simply pointing at a green canvas.

The television company then apply a ‘chroma key’ filter to replace everything that is green with another image – in this case, the weather map.

It’s a clever effect, and works well.

This technology is no longer just for television companies or weather reporters. Now you can apply the same effect using your iPhone or iPad and our app.
