NOTE: you do not need to have a chroma suit on during your video. Thats the whole point in this tutorial is to not have a chroma suit but make yourself look like you have one!
1. Import your video with you in front of a green screen to CLab or Vlab like you would normally do.
2. Drag you clip to the timeline
3. Now click the video and go to Matte:KeyGrade: and import a Hue Shift filter.
4. On the Hue Shift filter the settings should look like this.
Strength : 100
You will notice a slight difference but nothing close to a chroma key suit yet.
5. Now go to Matte:KeyGrade: and import the Color Balance filter.
6. Options for color balance should look like this
Instantly you will notice your green screen is a very strong chroma green...and so is your body! You have just made a chroma key suit. To have one chroma suited object, and one not, just do some copying and masking. If you may notice, the hue shift may not make much of a difference depending on the object in front of the green screen. A light person with brown hair for example should not have the hue shift on because it makes the hair darker, and it is not as green. To check to see if hue shift makes a difference, turn it on and off and move it around to see if you can get a better result. If not, then just delete it.
This is not as easy to do as using a real chroma suit for sure because it is very difficult and time consuming to have to mask and copy to get some items chroma suited, and some not. It saves money, but not time. Please reply!
