Where is the pipette tool for the chroma key? I thought I saw it on the pre- release 1.

There is no Chroma Key yet. Your thinking of the luminance key which is very different.

Difference key usually works better than chroma key, what color is your scren? It can't be anything except blue, green, or red, can it?

Black? Use the add pin filter/ In project mode, right click you object with the black behind it and click properties. Then it has a little menu that says composite or something like that. here are two options next to it. Right now its on normal. Change it to add. This will remove all blacm, but may make your object, actor whatever, a little transparent. To fix this, just copy and paste it until its completely opaque.

If you're doing white or black (or any neutral color screen) use Luminance Key. DV cameras sample luminance much better than crominance.
