    Default Making Backgrounds Transparent: Vegas

    I'm not sure if this has been answered. I've searched for topics like this 4 pages in and I've read about the blue and green screen stuff but I'm not sure if this is the same thing.

    Is there a way in Vegas Video to take video footage that has a black backround and change that backround to transparent so that you can have other footage in that spot?

    Example:

    I plan on making a LOST season 2 opening credits and I wanted to know at the end where the Lost is zooming out and all the faces behind flashing. The Lost title was actually taken from footage where it had a black backround. This person did the effect in Adobe by taking the black backround and making in transparent etc. Can you do this in Vegas?

    Default Figured it out I think

    I think I figured it out... I used the grey scale channel blend.

    Thanks though.

    You could add Chroma Key in the effects chain, select black as the colour and do it that way.
