Chroma Key is a technique used in film and TV production to combine multiple images or frames into a single composition. During the filming, the foreground object is placed in front of a monochromatic backdrop (usually green or blue). In the post production, the color background is removed and replaced with an alternative footage.
The Chroma Key mode in AKVIS SmartMask allows you to quickly and accurately remove a monochrome background.

Attention! The chroma key should always be applied to the original image, so use this mode at the first processing stage. Otherwise, the previous changes will be lost.
To remove the background from an image, adjust the following parameters:
To accept the changes, press the OK button. To exit the mode without saving changes, click the Cancel button. To restore the default settings, click on Default.
To edit edges of the resulting fragment use the Refine Edges mode.
To replace the old background with a new one, use the Custom Background mode.
