Chroma Key

The Chroma Key process is based on the luminance key. In a luminance key, everything in the image over (or under) a set brightness level is keyedout and replaced by either another image, or a color from a color generator. Also known as Blue Screen Compositing, the Chroma Key Process was made famous by films such as star wars where spacecraft miniatures were composited onto starfield backgrounds.
