    Very nicely produced and concisely targeted information as always.
  • Nicholas Barnes
    Brilliant, as usual. Good to have you back Don.
  • Donald Burr
    Great show! One thing to mention: with Chroma Key, the color you use for the chroma key will become transparent. Which you would NOT want for your subject! So pick a chroma key color that is NOT used in your subject, otherwise e.g. in Don's example, if one of the icons he used was colored green, it would be rendered transparent/invisible. Or if you were using a video of someone who was wearing a green shirt, then you would essentially have a hole where his body was and his head would be floating in space, which is REALLY creepy and probably NOT the desired effect.
