    Hello is there any way to correct the shimmering on subject due to shadows around edges of frame, which if i understand it , the computer is trying to push through the five shades between the color green and black shadow? Thx The subject is musician and would prefer not to redo as audio is perfect. Simulating audio to a new vid won’t work as the music has a lot of subtle speed changes, and the visual will not bode well to other trained musucians.

    The artist wants to have landscape photos superimposed thru out

    i will try that as shadows are on bottom. to improve it further is there any to recolor it so green is consistent and covers shadow section? the green screen format was not the best, using poster board. there were two big LED’s onto the greenscreen, but subject sitting in chair may have been too close as well/ thanks Ray

    Can you post a screengrab? What are you using to do the key? And plug-in?

    Not knowing a lot of the details, you might try a selective color correction on the green screen. Sometimes that’ll give you a little more control. Hawaiki Keyer is fantastic as well. Maybe worth a shot.

    Thx Mike is it possible to send a google drive link of short segment of video, and you could see if on your fixes could work? I dont have any plug ins’ and am a beginner. I would be glad to pay you to do if it could work. There are several segments of this vid. Thx Ray

    Can you post a screen grab so we can get some idea of what you’re up against?

    Sorry for delay. I found a solution using large sheet of green felt. 6’x14’ adjacent covering 12×8’(high wall) and 5’ of floor as well w 2 rolls of felt
