Chromer keyer

Hi

I;d be very grateful if someone could give me some advice?

I'm using FCP 6.0.6. I am working on a special effects film using a green screen

I've cropped around the green screen and now need to remove the green screen from behind my subject. I click on the eye dropper tool and then the green screen of my subject on the canvas but absolutely nothing happens?

(its not a case of some of the green disappearing, nothing happens at all)

Is there something that I need to do after clicking on the green screen? a delete button or something?

or is it that I shouldn't be working on the canvas?

I think its probably some simple step I've left out but can't think what it might be

Any help would be grateful appreciated (apart from suggestions that I trash the preference files that is!)

Jayne

Did you actually select the video track first by double-clicking on it?

Thanks for the suggestion, yes I did select the video track.

However where I went wrong was in not dragging and dropping chromer keyer onto the video track

Once I did that it all worked fine :)

Correction, you were absolutely right Mark, I also wasn't double clicking on the video clip

Doing that combined with dragging and dropping the chromer keyer onto the vid clip solved the problem

Thanks very much

Jayne
