  2. Compositors do ‘chroma keying’ (also just called keying). This is where they select a specific part of an image that has a distinct colour or lighting and extract it to be used elsewhere. This method is
    commonly used with ‘green screen’ or ‘blue screen’ footage, where a subject has been shot in front of a singularly green or blue background, in order to be able to place the subject in a different
    setting or environment later, in post-production.
  3. Creating convincing shadows within a shot.
  4. Adding motion blur to scenes
  5. Integrating rear projection into background images
  6. Working with blue/green screen effects
