When I think about the final frontier of Green Screen, it always includes hair, clothing outlines and blending with your background. These have driven us crazy for years.

And if you’re shooting in a small space like mine, sometimes you want to tear your hair out. (I didn’t only because I’m too vain!)

Well, say goodbye to all that. Here’s a technique that produces a flawless green screen video from within any serious editing program, provided you shot it even somewhat adequately.

I call it Chroma Fusion.

In this tutorial I’ll demonstrate how to do the technique and how to apply it to 4 different backgrounds. I’m guessing you’ll find at least one that applies to your favorite kind of video.

This is kind of a big deal. It will seriously upgrade all your videos from today on.

      Classic challenge, made more difficult by DST

          Im always confused by people that use those kind of abbreviations instead of saying what the letters stand for. I guess they think the rest of us are all some sort of mind readers. How much time does someone save by typing “K” instead of “OK”? Same when folk these days use emojis as a language that they believe are a precise form of written communication. That form of writing was tried millennia ago and rejected. Try reading hieroglyphics and then look at a statement posted by someone using only emojis. As a society we seem to have the vehicle in reverse.
          So, what does ” DST” mean? Daylight Savings Time? What does that have to do with the video you posted?
