Chroma Keying in Final Cut Pro

  1. 1. Chroma Keying in FCP Points to remember when filming to chroma key: Pay special attention to lighting. The background should be lit as • evenly and flatly as possible. Strive for no shadows or creases in the backdrop. Place your subject as far from the backdrop as possible. • Make sure your subject is not wearing clothing or accessories that are • the same colour as the backdrop. Or anything shiny/reflective which may reflect your backdrop colour. Black clothing should also be avoided as it may absorb spill. • Smooth down any fly away hair and avoid any fringe on clothing. • Lock down the camera and use only static shots (unless you know how • to do motion tracking). Chroma Keying: Place your background into V1 and your clip into V2. • Bring up your clip in the viewer and watch the output in the canvas. • Crop out the edges of the clip if they are not needed. • Effects – Video filters – Key – Chroma keyer Add the filter to your clip Click on the chroma keyer tab at the top of the viewer. • Select the eyedropper and click in the canvas on the green background • Holding down the shift key, click on the remaining green background. • All of the green background should fall away during this process. If some of your subject falls away hit apple Z to step back. •
