The idea was to have a video play inside of an analog television set. You first have to find that analog television that has a transparent area in the screen section. You won't find one that will look good, fits your project and has the perfect transparancy.
You will find televisions that have the look that you want but you have to fiddle with them. And by fiddle I mean lose four freaking hours of time.
This is no reflection on Corel Paint Shop Pro; trying to read and perform the instruction is a bad way to go when you are long past deadline. I should have given up; gone to plan B but noooo.
I had much better luck in TechSmith's SnagIt where I could perform a transparency fill but the corners were jacked up. Which meant you have to magnify to pour the transparency fill into small, irregular spaces. Took more time than I had.
When I finally got close to what I wanted I then needed to layer it in the video editing program. It was reluctant to play nice with the video.
Hence, no video as yet.
Part of creating is making mistakes, errors, and finding out that isn't that simple. I think I can do this and I don't think you should have to have After Effects to pull it off.
The rabbit shall be mine.
