|Blend live action video with animation using the Chroma key tool in all editions of Stop Motion Pro v7|
Step by step:
Create a new production/shot in SMP
|Here is a sample file, download and save it your desktop (right click on the link and select Save As). You need to have Quicktime installed to use MOV files with SMP.|
|It is nice to know that a frame with the key and without the key is saved automatically when you click capture. You can choose to export with or without the key when you Make movie or Export individual frames.
This means you can redo the key later with more sophisticated compositing software later, if required.
|Also new in v7 is the ability to switch between Keyed and non-keyed footage in the Editor.|
Use a smooth bright color for the background. We have found the best key material to be foam sheets from art supply stores. They are bright and non reflective.
