This Air application is an example of a marketing widget for the television show “The Colbert Report.” The application itself aggregates rss feeds about recent clips and upcoming guests, has a shout box for users to post comments, and uses video with alpha channels to simulate a green screen mashup.
The Green Screen Challenge Effects Console allows a user with little technical expertise to manipulate green screen video by:
1) adding light sabre visual and sound effects
2) keying out a green screen
3) mashing up footage of Steven Colbert with their computer desktop, video from their default video player or any flv that is dragged over the application
