Better Chroma Key Feature
Hello! I started using a green screen, and I realized that Twitch Studios' Chroma Key detection is really...difficult to work with. Part of the problem that I'm facing is that when I use the auto-detect, it does not properly detect the color of my green screen. The result is that it tries find the settings that best work with my green screen and it doesn't do so - parts of the green screen are VERY visible still, and if I adjust the Similarity or Edge Transparency scale, it still will not properly hide the green screen/background.
What I'm noticing are two options: A) Have parts of the green screen VERY visible, or; B) have parts of my actual face and body blur our and be transparent at the cost of having no parts of my green screen showing.
I've noticed this issue doesn't exist with Streamlabs OBS or OBS Studio - the Chroma Key function is MUCH more fluid on those programs (the auto-detect actually gets it quite close to perfection and barely needs me to adjust the Similarity or Edge Transparency scales.
I should note - this is with a ring light facing me, properly lighting, no shadows, etc. So...it's really odd that it doesn't work.
My hope is that the solution could be to either mimic the Chroma Key detection on OBS Studios or Streamlabs OBS, or to tweak the Chroma Key detection on Twitch Studios. Unfortunately I can't use it because of how poorly it is at detecting and adjusting to my green screen.
I'll try to provide screenshots later (if it's possible to edit this post) but just wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this or if it's been looked into/discussed.
Auto-detect just finds the most common green-screen color. I get the best results when I auto-detect then adjust the sliders as needed. I think you'll also notice that other streamers do still have some "fuzz" if you're looking. What I dislike though is that it's not dynamic at all. I'd like to see it try to constantly auto-detect like white balance if possible, with my specific adjustments constantly on.
Hello! Just bumping this.
I'm noticing a few more things that are infuriating with this platform's chroma key:
- The lighting conditions have to be EXACTLY the same, otherwise chroma key does not work properly. I have to reset my chroma key and recalibrate it if I decide to stream at a different time of day because of the SLIGHT variation in lighting conditions (something that OBS Studios and Streamlabs OBS does not require because their chroma key is significantly better)
- My blue chair is still blurred our and removed before the actual green-screen is
- When I have the chroma key set, it sometimes will flicker and you will see specs of green, almost like a TV static effect, for no reason
I want to continue using Twitch Studios but the chroma key function is so bad compared to OBS and Streamlabs OBS!
