Hi everyone i am a newcomer to the forum. I have recently started to get into putting together videos and captions etc, it is all for fun but i want to get deeper into the effects side.
I have done some basic work using chroma key, and i am very curious about the possibilites.
Also...i would love to know how you add animation to a existing video?, moving animation that can be pasted over existing movement.
What has pricked my curiosity is the star wars kid parody, how did they add the light sabres? and how did they chroma key him onto other backgrounds with no green or blue screen???. Is it possible to chroma key a video scene moderately successfully without the green or blue background??? obvously if a scene had a consistant background and the colour was not on what you want to lift from it their should be a possibility of pulling this off??
I would love to tap into the knowledge of people on this forum, and would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction to starting this thread if i am not already in the right place? i know a lot of you will be very on the ball regarding this subject, so i would appreciate terminology laying out in laymans terms...just until i get into it more haha.
