Hi i've downloaded the chromanator demo to try it and i' have one question to make.Can i' add a key color like alamdv's pluggin (for example green) to make my compositing on this without a real green or blue screen?I have a b/w character with dust and strains (like an old film) and i' want him in a color scene.Is that possible with chromanator?
Please give me your lights

Could you clarify what you mean please?
If you want to separate an element of the clip (in this case, the actor) from its surroundings, you can use the garbage mattes.

wellll, that's one way to do it. I would -- oh wait, you don't have the actor on a greenscreen? The easiest would be, like Tarn said, to use the garbage mattes - those you can animate easier.
ps - why would you mask the actor and then place a chroma bg? Just add the bg you want!

The only way would be to use the garbage mattes.
But it would br alot easier to film him on a green backround and key out the green.

Once you have used a garbage matte to isolate him from the rest of the image, you can place him onto any background you desire. There's no need to put a green background behind him (unless, of course, that's what you want), as he has already been separated.
