I have read some of the post on removing the black background form stock footage, and thats what works for me too.

I am now trying to remove the white background, or green background from some of the stock footage I am using, and have been unable to do so.

Thanks Guys

Use the alpha transparency filter I think.

Why don't you just chroma key the background?

Setting the composite blend mode to Mutiply will also remove the white.
