CHROMA KEY



Chroma keying is the art of removing the original background. In order to do chroma keying, you must have a video recorded with a green background with correct lighting effects. Why green? Nothing in our skin is green except if we wear some green stuffs. And the main reason is, green absorbs shadow better than any other color. A green blended with a black shadow is dark green. A red blended with black is close to maroon and take note our skin is having a shade of red.

the video used in this example is from you tube. here is the link for the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPzv_IrK9qc
How to to do it?
  1. Open sony vegas and load the video with a green background.
