    Hi, I’m just starting to get into green screen work. I did a successful test shot using bright green posterboard, and Magix Movie Edit Pro 15 Plus. I’ve got a 6 by 9 green screen sheet and stand on the way. Thanks for this well done tutorial. πŸ™‚

  14. MogliEdit says:

    for chroma key you can also use WAX. ItΒ΄s free sofware

    Movie maker has an option they call “blue screen” that pretends that effect. But you cannot really replace the background behind you on video. Movie Maker calls this “blue screen” what is something “almost” like rhe real blue screen. They have an option to tweak something like picture over picture. But you cannot put yourself in front, and exchange the background behind you like real green screen/blue screen technology makes it.

    very well done! You are very informative.

    Thank you for the response and the information.

    And like said in the video, the other explanation I found is to just keep in mind that the contrast with dark colors might work better with green which is brighter. While light colors (like blond hair) result in a sharper contrast with a blue.
    This is just an orientation. Both blue/green actually work fine.

    And I can tell that I was wearing a white shirt with a green backdrop, and it absolutely worked well. (you can see that video in my favourites). Hope that helps πŸ™‚

  21. successmatrix says:

    Actually I believe it would not make much of a difference. The blue backdrop has been used for many years in the film industry, and obviously worked well. Then green baceme more popular. I was curious about the difference, and the result of my research was that when actors spent whole days in a completely blue studio they were tending to get depressed. Blue is a dark cold color. While big green studios seemed to have a more cheerful impact on the psyche. That is one story I have found.

  22. ImOfNope says:

    Great job on the video and information. It was very simple as well as understandable. I have a thought. You say that blue screen works better for someone who is more light hair and you use the green screen because your hair is dark. Let’s say your interviewing someone who is blond. Your both sitting on stools and behind you is a green screen and behind the blond person is a blue screen. Just curious about your thought on that technique? Thanks in advance.

    So far I have not used magix plugins, but I recommend you go to magix(dot)com, and there go to “community” and register as member – That is the place where I post my questions and get answers from geeks pretty quickly. So this might be helpful for you too.
    Take care,

  24. sdmix1 says:

    Very helpful but i have a question for you, where do you find plugins for Magix edit pro which is what i’m using as well?
