    Great video on a timely subject for me, as I am starting on some presentations. Skype does a super job of removing the background and even my chair without the use of any green screen, and provides for user supplied backgrounds. Do you know of any program that provides good background removal in a similar fashion? That would allow recording at various locations without dragging along a green screen. Once again, thanks for a wonderful and informative website.

    Carl: No. I've seen passable effects like that in Skype and Zoom as long as you don't move too fast and keep the camera completely steady. But I don't know of a stand-alone recording app that does it. Of course another point of a green screen is not needing to go to "various locations" at all.

    Thank you for a GREAT podcast on green screens. You quickly addressed just about everything that a neophyte would need to learn about green screens. We're computer users, after all, so learning about how to make or buy cheap green screens, and even how to properly light them, eliminated all of the unknowns and turned a big mystery into a simple set of choices. Again, well done!
