Live Compositing & Chroma Key Check
on Jan 16, 2017 at 8:43:01 pm

I need to check chroma key and also compositions in a film set situation. So I'd need to pipe in a live feed (green screen) a background to see how the match. This would not be for the actual compositing, meaning that I would not use the result live. I just need to see how they fit.

I saw there is some sort of German named plugin for AE, but I cannot find it now. Is this possible, with this or another plugin.

If not, I'd appreciate any other suggestions.

Thank you

I'll bet you could rent a New Tek Tricaster for the day(s). It's hardware and will do chroma keying off live sources. While not up to the task of sophisticated compositing, it's certainly good enough to get shots lined up. A bonus -- it's easier to check and tweak the continuity of the background / subject lighting for easier post work.

I'd check it out.
