    live green screen / chroma key?

    Hello all,

    just wondering if anyone has done this and if so what they were using, only in a primary school so dont have mass's of money, currently have a digital camcorder and a copy of pinicle studio but just wondered if it was possible to do a live chroma key effect? Acouple of kids have ask me if they can do a weather report just wondered how best to do it?

    Cheers,

    AFAIK nothing free on a PC - an apple mac fanboy told me that their version of messenger does it.

    I'm using Wax from DebugMode in one school

    Green Screening on the cheap using Windows

    Does it have to be live?

    regards

    In general if you're doing chromakey live you'd be doing it through a vision mixer or a DVE unit rather than through a PC. I can't think of any non education type situations where you would need that facility on a PC.

    Might be worth trying to scrounge/borrow a vision mixer with Chromakey (aka CSO in some circles) built in?

    You can do bluescreen for Free in Windows Movie Maker. It's not live though and it is a little fiddly but our year 6 managed it fine last year.

    This year we're using iMovie 09. As much as I hate to say it, it's a corker of an app.

    Kudlian Software Limited
    This company were pushing their software at bett.

    It's about £400 for a site licence of their weather studio software. Which I believe includes live chroma key. Try the fre trial.
