Chroma keying is a special
effect that revolutionized filmmaking. In video and film production,
chroma keying on green or blue screen allows filmmakers to combine
shots, change locations, fix mistakes, maximize budgets and create
impossible effects. Every day, audiences see the result of chroma
keying's innovative history.
Chroma keying is the process of shooting a subject on camera and
replacing that subject in an entirely different background indiscernibly.
According to Mercury TV, chroma "refers to the purity, brilliance
or richness of a color and its strength and weakness...Keying cuts
a hole in an image making it transparent. The resulting hole is then
filled with another image." The development of color film and
television allowed colors absent in human skin tone to be isolated
and separated. Blue and green are the primary colors used as chroma
Hence, we would like to give an opportunity to all filmmakers to

Chroma key, also called Chroma key compositing or "green screen,"
is a technique used in video filming and still photography. Chroma
key places the subject of a photo or video in front of a solid green
screen (occasionally the screen will be in other colors such as blue
or magenta). The subject is then filmed with the Chroma key screen
as a backdrop. After the video has been made, video editing programs
are used to digitally insert any background desired into the video
or photo. The goal of Chroma key is "combining images from different
sources and merging them into one seamless image,"
The main effect that a Chroma key screen has is brightness. Chroma
key screens are typically colored in a brilliant green or blue color.
The brightness of the screen is very obvious, and will make the subject
of the video much more noticeable than they would be with a dark-colored
screen or a backdrop with multiple colors on it.
A Chroma key screen gives an effect of clear subject definition. Any
person or object who is placed in front of a Chroma key screen will
stand out in very sharp relief, which makes it easier for the technicians
working on the film to insert backgrounds later.
