Final Cut Pro and Chroma Key
  As our name says, this site is all about Chroma Key; "The process of overlaying one video signal over another, the areas of overlay being defined by a specific range of colour, or chrominance, on the background signal" (Quantel Digital Factbook).
Final Cut Pro is hands down the most common chroma keying application on the mac, and while Shake might be a better tool to do it in, many more people experience the joys and difficulties of chroma key with their Final Cut Pro. If there is any additional information missing from these pages that you think is relevant, please feel free to send an email to info@chromakey.tv.
 
Final Cut Pro
  Final Cut Pro has a built in chroma key and matte tool that can be used to make a virtual set, a multilayered composite of a background, a chroma keyed layer with talent in it, and potentially a foreground layer for things like desks. Final Cut Pro can import footage from various sources and chroma key it over an animated video background or virtual sets. This gives you a powerful way to composite images right within Final Cut Pro.
 
What is a Virtual Set?
  A Virtual Set uses green screen keying to create a set or stage that isn't real, and in some cases could not be. Virtual Sets are ideal for situations where a real set is too expensive because of either space, location, or materials cost. Building a football stadium would be very expensive. Building a football stadium made of gold on the moon would be impossible, but not with a virtual set. A small stage covered with green screen, Final Cut Pro, and adequate lighting is all that's needed to put your talent anywhere your imagination wants to put them.
