Hi, does any one have an idea on how to key a video with 2 greenscreens of 2 different shades of green, or green and blue. My greenscreen was not big enough, so i bought some fabric, but its not the same shade. i tried doing 2 chroma keys of the different greens, but that did not work. i tried hue key and color difference together, but that did not work.

Can you post an example of how "it didn't work?"
Using multiple keys on footage with multy colored or lit greenscreen is very common and should work. You need to adjust the settings once the key is applied because every clip or footage is lit differently as well as other factors that may come in to play.
In other words... not all footage is the same and you wont get the desired result by just applying one of the keying options on to footage.
