[Mod: Edited topic summary; please use descriptive summaries.]

I was just talking to my friend about how I did my first greenscreen but I was stupid and put lights in front of us lighting the screen causing slight shadows instead of lighting the screen with the lights behind us - so I was saying I don't know if that will be a problem but he said I think Chromanator can take care of it and I went to the page and it said "Lousy greenscreen" With A LOTTTTT worse shadows then mine and the cool result soooo........ Does it really work?

And is the program as user friendly as the Alam series? Because I don't get a lot of money but if it can do this then It is definatly worth it to save for it. So yeah- WOW I'm excited

Well, if you really wanted to be sure if it could key it, try it out. And i'm almost sure it can by the description you gave.

Well I have yet to get in on the computer but- I tried the demo and it works nicely- I found a video with similar shadows and it's awesome! I will be buying it-
