Tips for chroma keying bad footage in Vegas!
Well the other thread is for After Effects, now we move on to Sony Vegas Pro!
Keying out a green screen in Sony Vegas actually seems easier to me than in After Effects, however results are not as accurate.
Like in my AE tutorial we will steer clear from the automatic Chroma Keyer for the moment and take our time to first build an FX chain.
LET'S START! First add a bunch of Color Correction (Secondary) to your video clip with the green screen on it. Now what you have to do is click on SELECT EFFECT RANGE. After that you drag your cursor on the part of the frame you want to key out. Don't drag the cursor over the whole frame, just bits and pieces at the time. Everytime I bump the Saturation up and choose a chromaticity value close to green. I just repeat this process a bunch of times until most of the green screen is perfectly green.
Now we bring in the Chroma Keyer to key out this perfect shade of green! Choose the eye dropper tool and click anywhere on the green surface of the frame. You now have a very decent keyed out screen!
Hope you liked this tip!
