    After I start doing chroma key with the image below

    With black blackground it gets well

    But when I try to make the background white

    After I tune it, it starts to be blue

    What am I doing wrong?

    If you are using the Vegas built in Chroma Key filter, it somewhat has some limitations!

    But in the meantime, why don’t you just simply put a solid white background behind that individual after keying!

    However, for serious Chroma key work, its advisable to invest in purchasing a more powerful option, which would be FXHome Ignite Pro or Borisfx Continuum Primatte Studio, they both include industry standard Keying features.

    Hi Diogo

    As Steve said, the ignite Pro plugin from FXHome works great. Once you install Hitfilm, the plugin will be available in Vegas also.

    From what I can see by one of your pics, the one with the green BG, you are standing way to close to your screen, hence the dark spot around you. If the camera sees a shadow, for sure you will have a harder time to key it out. In order to work best, the green (or blue) BG has to be evenly lit. Preferably, the BG will have a different lighting source than your subject. Also add a top of the head back lighting in order to better define your subject from the BG (but don’t go too harsh).

    Do a couple of test runs with your environment a go with what works best.

    Cheers !
