Is your key turned off? If all of the greenscreen is still there, then it isn't being keyed out, which either means the green color is way, way off, and outside the range of color the key will affect, or something is wrong in your key settings, which is much more likely.

Make sure the Auto Color Difference filter is enabled, and that the Color is set to Green.

Also, make sure that your greenscreen photo is imported as the Foreground, and not the background by accident.

I had it a couple of times when someone was wearing blue clothes. And when the keycolour is set to "Auto" it sometimes just keyed out the blue instead of green.

So make sure the keycolour is set to "green"
