This is not the blue screen of death I am speaking of, but the process called bluescreening (also known as green screen, or Chroma Key).
It removes a particular colored background from an image so that it can be superimposed on some other video/still picture. If you have ever seen the weatherman stand in front of the map, then you have seen someone doing a blue screen technique.
I would like to be able to
- capture video from my webcam
- send that video to a bluescreen / greenscreen / chroma key program
- have that program replace the color in the background with a background of my own choosing
- Once the image is superimposed, pipe it into Skype for video conferencing.
Anyone have a good way to do this?
