Hi, I'm gonna show you how to do a screen replace in ShotANVIL. It's almost the same as in SliceX, um, but let me show you anyway. So Screen Replace here under ShotANVIL and I'm going to select the insert clip apply and then open the editor.

And it's gonna ask me immediately to specify the four corner points. 1, 2, 3, 4. Okay. Now we can adjust for feather here.

We can also change the way the image is inserted fit height. So what that does is it, it shrinks the image so that the height fits and, and leaves the aspect ratio the same. So in this case, it's cutting off the size fit width is fitting the width, leaving the aspect ratio the same

"Fill" is ignoring the aspect ratio and just filling the shape. So we'll put that back to fit height. We also could go to image transform here and move this across. And also if we click here, there are sub-settings for saturation, blurring the insert, uh, lowering the contrast gamma and the fit modes as we saw before.

So normally with a screen insert you will wanna blur it slightly and make it a little bit desat, a little bit lower contrast, which is what these defaults are. But if you don't want that, you can put it back to normal.

And now we're ready to track. Just make sure you have this one here, selected surface image layer, and then the orange points are visible that are actually aligned with the screen. And then hit the track forward button.

Okay. And we'll just jump ahead to where that's finished. Exit the viewer, ShotANVIL editor, and then I can play the result. Okay, that is Screen Replace in ShotANVIL. Thank you.
