Heed the warning of the mighty mecha.
Almost every NLE can do this to some extent. After Effects, Commotion.....blah blah blah blah.......by "cheap" I assume you mean "free".
Check the usual assortment of file sharing portals for "trial" versions.

Every video editing programs have a chromakeying (blue screen) function inside but for better performances, I recommend Primatte Keyer as it is suppose to be the best on the market.
This time, Mechaforce haven't been so fast on his traditional "do a search!!!", and I have to agree with him this time, you will get plenty of other advises.

Yes, that would work- but you can download After Effects from any file sharing portal and learn how to do it on a "real" program.

if you use a Mac, a company called eZedia (www.ezedia.com) just released a plug in for iMovie2 OSX: eZescreen 1.0 which allows for professional quality blue and greenscreening. The plugin sells for $4o US, and iMovie is of course free.

It is at times like this that I wish I had a Mac. Also when my Windows crashes every two hours.

I've got both platforms. No problem with either. Format/Reinstall. It'll always save the day.
It's been a while since I was on Caraccho (spl.). I'll have to "investigate" again.

Actually, I would rather just wait a while until my Windows 98 gets REALLY outdated, and then buy a Mac and install Windows on it also.

Hey Guest, what I meant was that I'll wait until my family is ready for a new computer (I am a teenager) and then bug them to get a Mac, then buy Windows to go with it, so I can switch between the two. This is because Macs are better for making movies and such, but Windows is better for games.

Lloyd66 don't count on Virtual PC to play games on a mac(if that's what you meant by buy windows to go with a mac). Virtual PC only runs at 50% of your processor speed and you can't use your graphics card for 3d acceleration with it. So that means any game made in at least the last 3 years will be unplayable. But companies like Aspyr and MacSoft are porting more and more games to the Mac now.

No, I didn't even know there was a thing called Virtual PC that existed!
I was just talking about buying like Windows XP or something to go with a Mac.

LOL, No it would be nice if you just install Windows on a Mac, but that won't work. Mac's use completely different processors than PC's and need a completely differen't operating system. The only way you can run windows on a Mac is by emulating it with Virtual PC, but it runs too slow to do anything very processor intensive.

'guest' again here...DO NOT IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM GET A MAC (like you could) AND INSTALL WINDOWS ON IT!!!!
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING???
Get a PS2 or XBox to play games...use your Mac to make money!!!!!
WHAT are you thinking?
95% of people don't know how to use windows...the other 5% think they can install it on a mac.
Now I don't want to hear another word about VPC or any other thing that is not mac OS on a mac...
there is NOTHING nice about installing WINDOWS ON A MAC!
(pardon me while I spark up my 'saber)
but your head is coming off...

OK, nothing more about Windows on Mac. Anyway, let's get back on topic. I would really like to know of a good chroma keying program for under $50 that runs on Windows on a Windows system! Sorry about my ignorance.

I dpn't really like Macs either. I do have to admit, the new IMacs look sweet but thats only looks. Virtual PC isn't the best thing to do. Macs and PCs are totally different systems. Installing Windows on a Mac is kinda stupid(no offense) because you're going to get choppy performance because of the IMac's system specs.

Hey Jamie, can you give me a link to that axogon program you said that can do blue screening.

Post 31 of 34
never mind. I found it. but can someone tell me how the program can do blue screening if you tell it to solor key one type of color when there can be variations of that color due to lighting when filming?
Posted: Tue, 18th Jun 2002, 9:20pm
Post 32 of 34
Most programs allow you to adjust the sensitivity of the key. That way it will key out all colors similar to that color. Blue screening can be difficult especially with poor lighting. You have to fiddle with the sliders until you get just the right key.

with the program axogon, it just asks you what color you want it to key.

A new blue screening plugin was just released for After Effects and Premier, for a good price too only $49. Supposed to be easy to use and produce good results.
