With chronometer- i was wondering if it is possible to have a video imported to take the place of a greenscreen?

EG:

If you imported a movie of some tree's blowing really hard to the left,(imported into the greenscreen background) and then have someone blowing to the left so it looked like the person was actually making tree's blow to the left? Chromy doesnt just work with a static background to take the place of the greenscreen does it, im really hoping you can have your greenscreened background as a video coz it just multiplies the possibilities heh? I am asking because have alamdv2 which rox btw, so im also considering getting chromy just to complete the set =)

many thanks!

Chronometer ?

The entire point of Chromanator is that it is used to key out footage YOU provide, of YOUR characters on your OWN greenscreen.

It would be simply ridiculous for Chromanator to force you to key out footage on a background IT provides - cutting out your characters to put them onto the forced chromanator greenscreen would require greenscreen software in the first place!

Chromanator. wink

Yes, Chromanator can mix together any combination of video and still image sources, so what you're asking is not only possible, it's what the program is designed for! Download the demo and try out the Quickstart tutorial if you want to get an idea of how it all works.
