How Do I Edit Green Screen Footage In 3 Minutes? - The Basic Filmmaker Episode 04

Hey!!! There's More Stuff Down Here!... ↓

About this video...

I've had numerous questions about how to pull a good green screen. This is known as pulling a key, chroma key, replacing a green background, etc.

Well, here's the tutorial on how you do the perfect green screen removal process in After Effects and drop in a background that looks really real in about 3 minutes or less.

Special thanks go to Phillip Bloom, Eve Hazelton and the Realm Team for originally including part of this in a full lighting tutorial.
