  • Chromakey software? I need to find software.

    Chromakey software. Does anyone know a good free or cheep program. I do events i need a software program that can edit out the green screen on the spot so i can print the photos on the spot. If posible, the program would be able to directly import my canon xt images right away. I have seen the express digital software. its ok but its just so much money. Just wondering if you all know of something that is cheeper and maybe even better. Thanks for your help

    i've used this in the past and it's very good, steep learning curve but the results are amazing:

      Cinematte used to be considered the best for this specific situation. But since they recently tried to auction off their trademark and sourcecode, I wouldn't go waiting for a new version.

          matthew,

          if i'm understanding you correctly, why couldnt you just do this in a normal editor like photoshop or paint shop pro? seems like if you're shooting your subjects against a green screen, then all you'd have to do is import the shot into Photoshop/Paint Shop Pro, use the selection tool to pick out the green and simply erase it in one stroke.

          presumably, you'd want another background, so, simply stick that background on another layer above your recent erased one, combine the layers, and voila. done.

          so, what am i missing here?

            Look under the category "Selections/Masking" here.

                  Green Screen Wizard has a plugin version and a standalone. The plugin is more useful because the standalone forces you to combine images before saving. You can not save the image with a transparent background. So even though I mainly use Paint Shop Pro IX I still need photoshop to use the plug in. http://www.greenscreenwizard.com/ is the link.

                    PhotoKey & Photokey Batch work well and allow you to blend the image with the background. Simply removing a background in photoshop doesn't provide a realistic look.

                    PhotoKey can be purchased from TubeTape.com at the url below.

                      Like Craig I am curious and wonder what I am missing here as I would have thought that using the colour selection tool would work well and you could have a selection of different layer backgrounds ready to enable a variety of effects.

                      Again forgive my curiousity but what type of 'events' are you referring to and why the need for new backgrounds?

                        Green Screen Wizard is very powerful on Chroma Key. There is both plugin version (for Photoshop) and a standalone version. I prefer the plugin since it combines with the functionality of Photoshop. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/rdsJB4

                            Yes. Wax 2.0 http://www.debugmode.com/wax/download.htm is a good program. It is completely free and here is a tutorial on how to use the Chroma Key in Wax: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnW9UbYMMS0

                              For the last 3 years I'm using GSW Photoshop plugin. It is not free but deserves every penny considering several software which have been just crap. If you like to check it out here is their website: http://bit.ly/IOQZAJ

                                I'm still reading through the documentation, but it looks promising. It has a trace feature (not to be confused with clone) similar to Corel Painter. Very arty results are possible for those with traditional art/drawing skills or with a moderate amount...

                                Not sure where to go to ask this so am starting here. I am interested in doing a morph from one image to another. on web search, i found "Fantamorph".

                                Does anyone have any feedback about Fantamorph? Or, are there other software programs available for this?

I recently received a netbook, and since the CD for the Software Bundle has been gone well over a year, I can't seem to find anywhere that has the bundle. Honestly, all I need is PenTools, but everywhere that has the software doesn't...
