Hi, for my most recent project, i was hoping to recreate live blue/green screen as seen in Science of Sleep or weather reports.

http://images.pingma...itle/gondry.jpg

is a screen example of what i'd like to achieve, and i have previously worked with green screen, so i feel comfortable with the technical aspects of that. but i'm not quite sure how or where to start with live green screening.

the equipment i will most likely be using is a macbook pro, canon 7d and a generic projector/monitor.

thanks in advance!

As far as I know you cannot key live without dedicated hardware such as a video mixer with keying ability. FCP is an editing program, not a live program.

Thanks for the input, I dont suppose if you know what type of dedicated hardware and expense/difficulty it requires to have this dedicated hardware?

The ones I know are pretty expensive, but you can probably find them for rental, something along these lines:

Others who do more broadcast work may chime in as it's been awhile since I've had to do live keying.

seems as though im going to have to think of another way around this as this hardware is definitely out of my budget. but thanks alot!
