Trouble Shooting

Q: I get lots if  noisy pixel and can’t see the background video clearly:

“You know those big, blockbuster Hollywood movies that use “green screens” to make actors look like they’re somewhere they aren’t? Now, for $1.99 Apple fans can take advantage of a similar feature…”

“Does Green Screen Movie FX offer enough quality to warrant the two dollar price-tag? And the answer is—certainly! The app offers the best chroma keying I’ve seen on a mobile device…”

“Once you’ve finished your composite, you can easily share it in a number of ways. Good stuff!”
