    Sorry, if the title is a little misleading, but I have been “hired” (with pay :P) to do a 5 min chromakey (Green Screen) sequence. my thoughts were to use BSOL but the problem is it is all in live motion. how would I go about splitting the video into single frames in .jpg format to work in BSOL?

    Thanks in advance

    convert the video into jpgs and import it in bsol. bsol can only work with a small number of frames. If you use more frames, it will slow down. so only do aboutr 20 frames at a time. Or if you can, use after effects because i believe it can handle live action

    Hmm…one option is to give the job to me and let me do it. With the pay, of course. 😉

    EDIT: Btw, the title isn’t misleading. Chromakeying is basically the correct word.

    Oh I said the title was misleading because it is more about how to split the video into indevidual frames, not as much chromakeying

    use videomach or premiere to convert the video to jpg. You can get videomach for free.

    Why do you want to convert your movie to single frame ?
    Is it for a stop_motion purpose ?
    If you are only doing live action, I suggest you not to convert the movie,
    but use a regular chroma keying soft (Sorry, Wandrer 😛 ).
    Premiere, After Effect or Vegas are able to do some very good chroma, provided you have got a decent unified pure color background.

    If you want to convert all your movie in frames, I fear that any frame will have a different rendering, thus when you will assembly your frames again, your movie will flicker.
    If you are only in the live action domain, I find this a little tricky to process single frames. What a difficulty and loss of time ! 8)
