Chroma key allows us to create a video or image against a plain cloth or wall.

We can now make this plain colour disappear to reveal a layer behind.

Step 1: Choose a backpround

Create your own

Take a picture

Use an existing photo (copyright free)

Pixels or Photos for Class

(you can also download a video as your background)

Step 2: Act or pose infront of a plain background

We normally use green or blue as they aren't skin tones (unless you are an alien!)

The official name is 'Chromakey'

Step 3: Layer the images or video

Background image/video goes at the bottom

The middle layer is for you 'chromakey' content

Top tayer can be used for another chromakey
