i tried to search the forums for this topic, no luck. Can this software green screen on the fly? i've composited a couple shots. I'm a total beginner, but i really want to do a taped show without having to render for hours. any advice would be nice. thanks

No, neither CompositeLab nor VisionLab can process greenscreen live. In fact, you will almost certainly need a hardware solution to handle that, and not just a piece of software.

For live greenscreening, you're most likely going to need a video mixer of some kind, which can be bought from a company like Edirol for various purposes. For software, I do believe that Adobe makes a package called Visual Communicator or something similar. From the link you posted, Veescope and Adobe Ultra are used often too. But the Lab products cannot do this sort of compositing, as it is all geared towards post.
