This has never been a problem before so I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I have a full screen backgroung layer full the film duration of 21 seconds. I have a green screen layer of 21 seconds which I have keyed and cropped.
The problem is that I only see the background within the areas of the alpha crop. Everything else is black. What am I doing wrong?

What type of key filter did you use? Have you applied an object mask anywhere?

Key Grade- Sautration
Key Grade- Sharpen
That is the complete list of filters.

And all of those are applied to the greenscreen layer, with nothing at all applied to the bg layer? Can you give us a link to a screencap of what you are dealing with?

Is it possible that Vision lab is capturing the groping from my LE (Pinnacle 14?)

You don't attach, you give us a link to somewhere you upload the photo.
Not sure what you mean by the groping comment.

Sorry, Cropping not Groping

What cropping are you doing in your NLE?
If you are describing what I think you are, the only way I can think of to achieve that effect is to invert your key, which would leave the green and remove the person, or to apply an object mask to your background. If its neither of those, its hard to suggest anything else without seeing an image.

The object mask worked. I blocked off the cropped areas and the background appeared. I just dont understand why this is the first time I've ever noticed this. Thanks for the attention.
