What is Chroma? And why green is the common color?

Chroma is all about colors, and in the world of video and photography, we use a special kind of color called chroma to create cool effects. Think of it as a magical way to replace one color in your video with something else.

Now, why is green the superstar in this color party? Well, it’s because green is not a color that people usually wear a lot, and it doesn’t show up in many natural settings like your room or clothes. This makes it super easy for technology to spot the green and swap it with something different – like a space background or a tropical beach.

So, when you see a person on TV standing in front of a bright green screen, get ready for some movie magic! The green will be replaced with whatever awesome background the creators want, turning a simple video into a fantastic adventure. And that’s why green is the go-to color for making the impossible happen in videos!
