I like the new background effects Joe. Are you playing around with After Effects or something now?
No I did the chroma keying in Final Cut Pro X which has the best keyer available anywhere. I then exported the video with the alpha channel intact and edited it in Final Cut Pro 7, because otherwise X cannot handle what Game Sack needs. We only used two lights for the entire shoot, no lights dedicated to the green screen. I'll be uploading a picture or two from the "set" in a day or two to our Facebook page. The background effects were also done in Final Cut Pro 7. I did use After Effects for one shot, though... the one where Sonic knocks away the Alex Kidd logo. No idea why I did that particular one in AE.
the rest are all complete dirge - Enchanted Castle included.
I'll have to agree that there is a certain charm in Miracle World which is not in Enchanted Castle.
