I’m brand new to editing but am learning. In my first video I made the mistake of not having the green screen evenly lit. This resulted in one small section of the background being a bit lighter. When applying the chromakey filter I can get the subject to look pretty decent, but the background on one edge has the color off enough for me to notice. If I correct that then the subject starts to have the background showing through him, so that isn’t a viable option.
A more advanced editor (who uses another program) suggested I use a mask to essentially select the subject. He said it’s a way of telling the program to use the chromakey in the critical part of the video only and would allow everything else grab the background jpg by default. I cannot find anything though with the mask that seems to do what he’s suggesting. Am I just stuck this time? I have at least learned to ensure the background is uniformly lit in future videos, but ideally I’d like to be able to correct my error this time via the editing process.
Thank you for any recommendations!
