Wirecast Virtual Set Tutorial



If you purchased a Pack off the Telestream website with an installer it should place the sets in the appropriate folder for your operating system. In the event of a problem check to make sure the folder below exists.
If you purchased an individual virtual set you will need to copy the contents of the zip file to the correct location for your operation system:

Wirecast Virtual SetMac : /Library/Application Support/Wirecast/VirtualSets
WIN: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Wirecast\VirtualSets

Start Wirecast and add a Virtual Set Shot by clicking + on a layer and selecting New Virtual Set. Pick one of our sets from the list that appears.



In your Shot Layers you should now have a list of layers and your Virtual Set in the preview window. You can turn off the A and B Placeholder by clicking the eye icon to toggle visibility. You can delete layers entirely by selecting them and clicking the minus (-) button.


You can add a camera or click by clicking the plus (+) and choosing a camera. The up and down buttons will move your newly added layer up and down the layer list letting you put your talent behind a desk or your screen behind the frame layer for it.


Fig 03Setting up the Chroma Key

Check the Use Chroma Key box to turn Keying on. Next, check pick key color with mouse and click on the most media color in your shot. Slide the Key threshold up until all of your greenscreen is gone. You should be able to use the Black and White clip to bring back any parts of your talent that might have gotten removed by the Key threshold. This may leave you with some areas of your studio still to be dealt with, which is where the cropping panel comes in to play.



The Cropping controls can be found in the Shot Layer Properties under the Crop controls. Once your shot is clear of greenscreen and extra material you can also use the scale and position settings here to adjust where in the set your talent is placed.

Adding Screens

Add a Media File or other input by clicking the + on the Shot Layers panel. Use the down arrow to move it to the appropriate layer (likely behind your talent). Now comes the tricky part, finessing the layer intothe screen. Use the X and Y Rotation and the X and Y Scale to match the existing screen as best you can.
