Chroma Key Not Big Enough
on Mar 17, 2015 at 6:43:47 pm

Hey,

Based on my situation, I need to film my entire body for a shot that requires a chroma-key background. My problems are:

1. Not having enough space on set for my cameras ratio (the camera picks up the adjacent walls because the room is small)

2. Not a big enough green screen

The thing is, the camera isn't moving for the shot. So it ends up being a perfectly fine center shot with two vertical borders (the walls). In theory (since I don't move past the green screen), I could just draw them out (they never move).

Is this possible? How would you overcome this feat?


Let me know,

- Ozal

You can easily use the mask tool to cut out those areas extended
beyond the green background.

As Steve said, use the Mask tool. It can be found in the Pan/Crop window. Just mask the areas outside of the green screen.

Speaking of green screen, Boris ChromaKey Studio filter in
Continuum complete is now the best and most effective keyer
available for Vegas Pro...

Yes it is and that would be perfect for this if the OP had the budget to buy it. But it can be down with Vegas Pro alone, just not as good.

True, its not for the once in a while editor, its an investment
for fulltime content creators.
