Hi, I am wondering if it is possible to add a glowing outline around a moving person in front of a green screen? If so, how would I do that?

Few different ways to accomplish this, but I would just key the green screen footage and then add a glow effect. Change the "Glow Based On" to Alpha Channel, select my glow colors, glow radius and glow intensity. Finally I would change the "Composite Original" to On Top.

He literally described every step to you. If you didn't understand what he said, you really need to take a step back and start here.
