To be viewing open effects overlay so Click that and now you can click the Little Plus eyedropper tool select our Chroma key and Bam it's done it's gone Obviously there's a little bit of spill Here really simple to clean that up go To our d-spill here under our Behavior Options and just crank that all the way To the top and then that green is gone Then all we need to do underneath we Just need to kind of resize and Reposition this let's scale it down a Little bit reposition it into the middle And scale it up and that looks pretty Good we'll play it through and in just a Few clicks we've now composited that Little Sunset onto our green screen but Another real bonus thing here in DaVinci Resolve is apart from the 3D care effect Here there's actually some really good Effects specifically if you want to try And get an old CRT look so what we're Going to do is we're going to grab Analog damage we're going to drop that Onto our cinematic Sunset clouds at the Bottom and you'll see immediately there It kind of looks like we've gone uh you Know to VHS world making sure we select Our clouds here we'll just go up into Effects and we've got analog damage here We've got a few different options clean VHS 1990s looks pretty good I can go all The way down to like early television But you're not going to see much with uh

With this piece of footage so I'm going To go with 1990s that looks pretty good But we also want to get that little bit Of the screen bulge as well so we can do That with lens Distortion and we'll just Drop that onto our cinematic clouds There and you can see it's done a little Bit already so making sure this is Selected going up to our lens Distortion And then we can push that through and Move our Center Like so and we can kind of blend that Together as well if we need we can also Uncheck the RGB as well if we want to Have just a little bit of uh kind of This chromatic aberration sort of RGB Hue shifting happening that you Sometimes get with those old vintage TVs And stuff so let's just you know have a Play around with that drop the effects Away play it through and see what that Looks like to me that looks pretty good It looks like someone's kind of popped In an old VHS of some cinematic Sunset Clouds onto this old TV so there you go A couple of clicks a few parameter Tweaks and we've got ourselves a Convincing chroma key composition Individual resolve now I hope this has Helped you out in your editing Journey If you liked the video go ahead and get Subscribed also let me know down in the Comments below if you want to learn any Other quick tips in DaVinci Resolve and
