I’m looking for a good free, or trial version of a good green screen/chroma key software. The one with Stop Motion Pro is terrible, as it never registers only the green background.

Hi Adam, There are a Couple that I know of, 1. Gimp 2 ,and 2.PaintDOTNET. These are Photo editors, (GIMP) Witch I use for Masking and etc. Gimp, you can use for Greenscreening, But now I use Adobe Premiere Elements for my Chroma Key. I hope this helps.

Thanks Tutorial Admin! Haven’t tried Adobe Premiere Elements before… hmm, I’d like to ask one thing, how can you make a video appear on a small TV or monitor while editing? Like when a scene calls for a character watching TV or in the midst of a Video Call?

Oh…. Now that’s a Little different, Premiere is just for Video Editing, I suggest getting AAE ( Adobe After Effects ), witch is around 1,000$ to 5,000$, or if you have a Apple laptop, I suggest getting Motion ( A cheaper AAE ).

Or the hard way, you can draw each frame of the tv show. and replace it on set for each frame you record in the film..

Anything Adobe that isn’t free is expensive. Its main target group is professionals and businesses. they can afford to pay extra.
