Hi everyone, I have a problem and please don’t reply “Shave”
I have got the green screen background quite good, but I have a big beard and so as you can imagine, it is an issue.
Everywhere is fine but around the edges of my beard it still has a very slight green to it.
Don’t say shave!
Oi, I said don’t!
A tip from
@MusicalBox in the video tutorial below. Add an “Alpha Channel Adjust” filter with the “Shrink Soft” mode:
[Shotcut Tutorial: Export videos with transparency]
In this video I explain how you can export a video that will keep it’s transparent parts when you use it in other projects. You’ll also learn how to remove the green background from a video and export it with transparency.
One of the advantages of exporting with transparency in .mov format is that it avoids the possible problems caused by using a MLT of size X in a project of size Y
Another reason someone might want to export as …
I live in Cyprus and that beard would be considered to be stubble, or a 5 o’clock shadow by some of the Othodox priests here.
There is a way.
I saw it in one of the many posts here on the Forum recently about transparency and greenscreens.

It might be AlphaChannel:Adjust:Threshold.
It looks like @Elusien has the real scoop.
By the way, if you want to use a “virtual” green screen (using Webex Meetings software), rather than a physical one, have a look at this video here:

There is also a Key Spill filter for advanced control.

Vous n’êtes pas obligé de la raser,
vous pouvez aussi la teindre.
You don’t have to shave it,
you can also dye it.
Thanks but I use the green screen for layers.
I have my background as the lowest track and me in the middle and that way I can add photos or video behind me but over the background and text over or below me.
A green beard would look good for St Patrick’s day. I believe they turned the Chicago river green on that day this year.
