I was wondering how to replace the green behind the subject with a backround ?

Try here. Click on the second one which is keying. I don't have C-lab by the way.

Click the greenscreen clip then --> Matte --> Key --> Chroma Key/Auto Color Diff. -->(If Chroma Key) Move the little dropper onto the greenscreen/bluescreen. That's all there is to it. You can fix up the footage with Key Grade, just above Key.

Once you remove the green, any layer of the timeline that is lower than the keyed footage will show through. So, simply place your desired background below the keyed footage on the timeline, and you will be good to go.
