Thought I might share my recent nightmare chroma key. It was shot on consumer camcorder with terrible lighting (and acting). They wanted to do a test animation for a new feature film.

This was the original footage! Ugh. At least it was sideways for more resolution.

I got a messy key.

So I did two keys, one brighter blue-green and the other darker green. I did an alpha matte on the two and got a much cleaner key.

Did a bit of threshold and luma key magic with tritone and it looked pretty sweet!

The finished test animation:

How would you have done it?
