Hi guys, I want this program for christmas but b4 I get it I would like to know if this is possible in the program. I saw the video tutorial and how you can add a backround and then apply a preset to yourself. What I wanted to know is if you can apply a preset to your self can you also shrink/enlarge yourself, like change the schale of yourself but not the backdrop?

Yeah you can but you must be in front of greenscreen. After you key your greenscreen (get the greenscreen out) and add a backround you can animate your greenscreened guy to make him smaller or bigger! If you want a better explanation just ask...

Which program are you asking about? Greenscreen keying is possible in CompositeLab but not in EffectsLab. The only way I can think of to do a shrinking effect in Elab would be to have an image of your subject with an alpha channel background (which could be done in Photoshop,) and keyframe the "scale" attribute to shrink over your background.

Yes, as Thrawn says, you have you key yourself so that you are separate to the background, then you can use the animation controls to scale down the footage of yourself to a smaller (or indeed bigger) size. Why don't you download the demo, you can try to animate a bit of test footage or something to see if it'll do how you wish.
