Microsoft Advertising: Screencap splice
Microsoft Advertising produced a video in 2011 showcasing its help with a Ford campaign. Needing a screen capture from the video for it’s thumbnail, I composited two separate screencaps to ensure both hosts were at their most expressive. I still readily use this technique today when creating video thumbnails, should the need arise.
First screencap, favoring puppet
Second screencap, favoring cohost
Final screencap, ready for publishing into web module for presentation
