You know what a "green screen" effect is, right? It's used in the movies to make it look like the actors have landed on an alien planet, and it's used on TV to make it look like your local news announcer is standing in front of a weather map. The green screen effect works by combining images from multiple sources into a single video or photo. These images can come from photos or videos in your camera roll, or from the live video camera.
• Use the live video camera, or import prerecorded videos, photos, and artwork
• Combine up to 3 elements at a time
• Move, scale, and rotate elements
• Chroma, crop, and mask tools to remove unwanted areas
• Record videos in high definition (up to 4K) or standard definition formats
• Capture still photos and save them to the camera roll
• Scrollable timeline makes it easy to sequence your videos and photos
• Trim videos on the timeline to keep only the parts you want
• Mix audio tracks from your videos and from the live camera
• Save videos and images to your Photo Library, or to iCloud, Google Drive, or Dropbox
• Export Green Screen project files for archiving or for sharing with others

Ratings and Reviews
Good, but only for limited use.
I purchased this app for editing videos, that way, for instance, I could make a space show and not have to build any permanent sets. However, whilst testing it out, I found that you could not export a video. Like you cannot under any circumstances. Too if you are serious about doing a green screen, this app has some trouble filtering out the green tint around the edges. With very, very careful editing you can almost get rid of it, but it isn't likely you'll get a completely clear, unblemished video. I give this 3 stars as an app to jokingly prank your friends that you traveled somewhere or just as a little fun project, but I would say it is completely unusable for serious pursuits.

Sorry for the confusion. You can export your photos or videos. To do this, tap the word "Save" which is to the right of the blue triangle above the timeline of your Green Screen movie. You will see Text that says "exporting your project." Wait for the processing. Then a text box will pop up with three headings..."Preview your video"..."Show the Export Options"...and "Saveto Camera Roll." Tap "Save to the Camera Roll." When completed, a box will pop up that says "Success! The video was saved to the Camera Roll." You can see how this is done at the 1:30 min mark on this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izVwOxSV5BA&feature=youtu.be If you are in the Gallery view and want to export a movie, tap on the thumbnail and follow the directions above. Any other questions, please email email@example.com
As a video artist, this app is fantastic.
I stumbled upon this by chance because I needed a decent chroma key app for on-the-go video art. This app is a DREAM. I am giving 5 stars because this app needs love and it’s the only one in the App Store that does what it does so well. It does have some places it can improve but, you know, later version or something. I’m patient.
What’s to love:
HD export! Perfect.
Work area is touch friendly.
Three layers for video/images.
Projects can be saved and loaded later.
Chroma Key can be adjusted to any color/sensitivity.
Interface is simple enough to use.
Final result looks fantastic! (This depends on your source footage, of course)
What could use work:
More adjustments for chroma key - edge blur maybe?
Keyframes! I love how I can positing things in the editing window via touch. It would be even cooler if those things could change positions over the course of the video. With three layers, you could do a great parallax effect.
A couple more editing buttons? Or at least a “split clip” option - “trim” only goes one way.
Support for aspect ratios other than 16:9
On the whole, this is my favorite chroma key app on this platform. Definitely worth a try.

Thank you for the compliment on our app and review. We have noted your feature requests. Wanted to let you know that "trim" goes two ways as shown in this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izVwOxSV5BA&feature=youtu.be Feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to dialogue. Thanks!
Fix your app.
I have one too many problems. Basically, your app decides to crash, A LOT, but sometimes it’s worse than others. Best crash, keeps progress, doesn’t crash again. Bad crash, deletes half of your progress. WORST CRASH, IT DOESN’T EVEN LET YOU INTO YOUR OWN PROJECT. EVER. IT’S COMPLETELY GONE, AND YOU CAN’T BRING IT BACK, BECAUSE THERE’S NO WAY AROUND IT, AND ALL YOUR HARD WORK IS GONE. This happened to me numerous times, and it’s just getting out of hand. Fix your app. I swear, this is the worst. Just worked on a 12 second video for about an hour, and this is what you give me. Nuh uh, you ruined my experience, and I don’t care if I’m being harsh, you need to work on it if it’s meant for 3 minute green screen videos. I wasn’t even using that much, usually I use like 40 videos, but I put in like 14, and you decide to lock me out then? Imagine you worked all your energy and soul into your project, and it locks you out for no reason at all. Explain. FIX. IT. NOW. ALSO UNLOCK MY PROJECT SO I CAN FINALLY SAVE IT.
