Video Into Silhouette



I am having a problem trying to make my video into a black FG and white BG silhouette style.

I used a green screen to film what i want. I'm editing it in "roxio video lab HD"

i clicked "Chroma Key" and that worked to turn the background white but i have no idea how to turn the (person) FG into a black silhouette as well.

If anyone has any idea or tips for me i will appreciate it highly.

(This video is an example of what i am trying to do, same concept, different color background)

hmmm I think how I would approach this is to video the subject with a backlight to get the silhouette and then luma key out the background over your white panel.


But since you already have your subject on a green screen background, you might try putting that footage on the Main Track, playing with the brightness and contrast settings to get the subject how dark you want them, and then outputting that to a file. Then bring that file back in as an overlay over a White Panel on the Main Track and then chroma key out the green background.
