ORLANDO, Fla. - March 6, 2015 - PRLog -- Blackburst Entertainment LLC announces the product launch of Proplates, and online, royalty-free, chroma key background plate store, giving editors and compositors instant access to high quality, real world, video background plates.

ProPlates is intended to fill a gap in the availability of quality background plates online. Common chroma key background plates found online are either poorly executed, computer generated virtual sets or still frames of environments that were not shot with the intention of being used for a background plate. ProPlates creator, Walter Lowe, set out to create this background plate library from scratch, only including video backgrounds that were specifically shot to serve as background plates. The process includes setting up actual interview scenes or host standup scenes with appropriate locations and lighting, then removing the stand-in talent and recording the out of focus backgrounds.

Production options include multiple angles of the same setup to allow editors to cut from to tighter or wider shots with the same setup, and multiple aperture options to allow the editor to ‘dial in’ the amount of background defocus without having to apply artificial defocus using digital blur tools. All our ProStandard level products and above offer production details to allow vfx technicians to perfectly match the foreground green screen shot to the background plate. Information such as focal length, focus distance, lens orientation, aperture, frame rate and color sampling is available to our customers in getting a great composite.

More Information: ProPlates ( launched with 40 background plate options, including office, tech, home and outdoor environments. The collection adds new products monthly and will be launching a contributor program later this year to allow cinematographers to add their own approved chroma key background plates to the collection.

Launch Discounts: Through May, ProPlates is offering a product launch discount on all their background plate products. Enter discount code ‘SPRING25’ on the checkout page for a 25% discount.
