none of the tutorials will explain how to even put a background where the green screen is. How do you do it? I'm working with the Vision Lab Studio.

Add the background you want to the timeline and place it below the greenscreen footage.

What it means is place your background clip or photo onto the timeline first( i'm guessing you know how to do that: just in the media tab click on the folder icon and choose what you want, then once you have Opened it to vision lab drag the image of it to the black screen or timeline)
then drag the greenscreen clip to the timeline - then do Mask( i think it is mask then chroma key (i don't have vision lab))

Is that helpful?

Yeah, you can add the background first. Or, you can add the background second, and then drag it below the other clip on the timeline. Click on the name of the layer and drag it down, so it is below the other layer.
