What you are talking about is Chroma Keying and, yes, you can do that right in FCP7 by selecting the clip and going to Effects>Video Filters>Key>Chroma Keyer. Then select the color you want to key out and tweak the settings until it looks good. Howev

[brad hebert] "Also, there is chroma keying involved." When you chroma key lower-resolution footage, you will almost always have to readjust the settings if you reconnect to higher-resolution footage. You would be duplicating your effort.
Changing sequence settings for editing?

I'm familiar with offline editing, where the video files are smaller with matching sequence and then reconnect the hi-res footage later. But I'm curious if it's ok to simply change the sequence setting, in my case from ProRes to HDV, in order to rend

I was able to key it like Jim did but your biggest problem is that the background needs to be a LOT greener. Drop a solid green (it's a preset) on your timeline. That's what a chroma key background should look like.

Wrinkles only matter if they cause shadows. Your background isn't very green to begin with, probably due to improper lighting and talent distance separation, as Mike mentioned. I was able to get something out of this, see attached screenshots.
