It is pretty crucial to get your talent framed correctly in ANY virtual studio – the viewer is smart enough to notice when something doesn’t look quite right, and getting your talent even slightly the wrong size can break the illusion very quickly.
I thought it might be useful to attach here a couple of images showing the wide angle view of Studio 1 and Studio 2 with some guide silhouettes sitting around the desk.
I suppose the main thing to point out is that the virtual desk in these studios is large. Maybe larger than you think. I added a diagram here a little while ago with ‘virtual’ dimensions of the desk, but I figured it might also be helpful to see what the desk might look like with people seated around it.
The key figure to note is the central silhouette – this would be the size that a single presenter should really appear on these wide shots.
I hope you find these useful.
NOTE: Studio 2 includes separate angles for all 5 positions around the desk. Studio 1 has a ‘mid’, ‘left’ and ‘right’ but I’ve added the same 5 guide figures in the image above just to help give a sense of scale.
