    "Chroma Key Touchup is a decent app for backgrounds and green screen. I think it would have been more appreciated as a free app. I can't really find backgrounds that I want to use. If they woked on that I'd give a higher score. "

WHAT’S THE MEANING

Chroma key compositing (also known as chroma keying) is a technique used in the post-production process of filmmaking that involves combining two frames or images by replacing the color background of the main subject.

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that green is the common color used in chroma keying because it has a very distinct shade from our skin? Moreover, it is the color that is likely worn by actors. But why does this even matter? Because in the parlance of film and cinematography, the aim of chroma keying is to separate the main subject from the green background (also known as the green screen) and of course, it would be easier for the video editor to isolate the green part if it stands out. However, in Hollywood, they are more into blue screens than green. An article published on No Film School suggest 5 secrets to pulling off a Hollywood-level chroma key. First and the most important one on the list is choosing the right chroma color. Although green is widely used, it is always necessary to consider factors in choosing the appropriate chroma to use. For instance, if the main subject consists of something green, a blue chroma would work better, and vice-versa. In photography, green screen is also utilized as it is more cost-efficient and allows the photographer to contain the subject into a controlled environment that he prefers.

    "I think this is the best chroma key app on the play store because it promises it's purpose may it be images or videos (even though it only works with short clips) although I only use chroma key editing for images on mobile because I understand that chroma keying is better done in a pc"

    "Considering you have to pay for this app, the quality of the pictures it takes could be better. When taking pictures with the app they come out too blurry, so they must be taken with the phone then load them into the app. Seems like there are lots of bugs with this app as well. But there are some nice backdrops to use, and also the ability to use your own."
