Actually, ChromaKeying can use any color that you have! That's why ChromaKey is a nice thing to have for people who can't afford/light a greenscreen (Or blue, or whatever) perfectly, because it works with every color. There are a few other ways on VisonLab/CompositeLab that can take out the green/blue/whatever color behind an actor besides ChromaKeying. But yes, you can use any color you want, but try to stay as close to true Blue (Or green, or w/e) as you can. It makes it easier for the computer to identify it.

Our compositing software can do bluescreens or greenscreens, it doesn't make any difference as far as the program is concerned.

We generally recommend using a greenscreren, however, simply because digital video cameras pick up more green colour data.
