Although I haven't used the software myself in such a way, I know we do have several users who have used PhotoKey 3 Pro and PhotoKey 4 Pro at major events with lots of success. It's been used at proms, school photo events, corporate events and major entertainment industry launches in London - and probably lots of other places we're not aware of.

An inherent limitation of the chromakey technique is that it needs to have clear separation between the background and the subject. A green tie can usually be handled with a simple mask in PhotoKey, but a full green dress would negate the benefits of using a green screen (speed and ease).
Some photographers always have a blue screen on hand for these situations, so that you can switch to the blue screen if somebody turns up wearing all green.
As with any technique, though, to get the major benefits from it you have to also be aware of its limitations.

I just started doing proms in the Baltimore area. We have decided to abandon the blue screen change idea because it takes too long to transition. (shooting full length)If the job calls for two cameras we will sometimes setup an alternate blue but so many more people wear blue we find it less efficient than simply masking green gowns and corsages. Were a work in progress. With the season upcoming, I may change my mind on it.
