Hi guys,

I was wondering if there was any way to set up After Effects (or fcp) with a camera and process a green screen live? (like in weather TV studio)

Sorry, but the answers are no and no.

Both FCP and AE work with previously-recorded footage. In FCP, you either capture or import the footage. In AE, you're limited to importing the footage. Not to mention that in AE, you have to render EVERYTHING. At least in FCP, you can play back in real time.
