How to green screen in iMovie

In this post we’ll teach you how to use the chroma key (also known as green screen) feature in iMovie.

Keying is the process of removing a portion of the video and replacing it with another visual element. It is most commonly done by using a blue or green background.

iMovie makes keying simple and after watching this quick tutorial, you’ll be able to start using the feature.

      Miguel. I've been meaning to produce a tutorial to explain.  You basically need a pure green background either cloth or paper.  I can show you my set up. Stay tuned.
