Simply put, it allows you to intelligently blend a picture into a movie or vice versa. This is more complex than creating a simple mask because a clip can change it's contents rapidly, and the mask has to adapt.
Chromakey static allows you to target any color in your picture or movie and create a transparency mask from that color. The best known example for this technique is the weatherman in front of his weather chart.
The process of intelligently combining a dynamic and a static source is also known as compositing‚. the technique of replacing a key color with a whole picture is sometimes called chroma keying.
Here are some key features of "Chromakey Static":
· insert a logo, caption, or other static design into your clip
· create 'knock-out' style animations (e.g. for titles)
· insert actors into a static scene (e.g. 'weather reports' etc.)
