Hi, this is my first topic so be gentle. I am in the process of writing a short Star Wars fan film with friends and would like to know if Chromanator can resize actors to fit on a city backdrop, i.e: a backdrop viewed from distance and need the actor to look tiny against building, like in Duality, because we don't have a location big enough to film the actor from so far away. Hope someone can help

Thanks

Sure can. You can resize/reshape it just like you can effects in AlamDV2.

You can check out the demo to see just how it works smile

Welcome to FXhome, Silencer! biggrin

Download the demo. Import your footage that was shot on the chroma-key color (red, blue, or green.) Go to the object mode. Select the Color Difference mode under the "key" pallette. Select your color, and the white settings, dedpending on how well it keyed. Then, go to the "Animate" pallette and a red border should appear around the keyed footage. Then, click, hold, and drag the boxes that appear on the border to resize it. Tip: If you have a green or blue border or aura-looking type thing around your actor, use the spill suppression.
