Adding shadow/reflection to chroma key subjects

Post  FlyXNite on Mon Jun 20, 2011 12:43 am

Hello and thanks to all for considering my question:

How can I add a shadow and/or a reflection to a chroma key subject using Vegas Pro 9 in order to make the results more realistic? I can image having two chroma key tracks and distorting/darkening/blurring one to form a shadow, but need the help of some expertise to tell me how. And if you read this Mark, I hope you consider a video tutorial as I think the video would take us all a step higher in our chroma key efforts.

Thanking you in advance for any and all responses.

Welcome to the forums FlyXNite!

I would try duplicating the layer of the subject and flip it then apply some color correction and blur to it...exactly as you were thinking.
I believe this would be best done in the program known as After Effects. Although Vegas does a lot of great editing stuff, it's not really a special effects program.


Try some things out in Vegas, sometimes this is when the best creative material is made!
