Chroma Key, Greenscreen Key and Bluescreen key function virtually the same way in versions 10, 11 and 12.
Have you ensured you have a background video on the track below your keyed video?
Have you tried using Chroma Key and defining the key color to match your green background?
Can you post a screen capture of your timeline so we can see what you're doing?
You should be getting the same results. I prefer to use Chroma Key instead of Green Screen Key, but is besides the point.
I took the following image into both Premiere Elements 11 and 12 Windows and applied the Green Screen Key Effect to both.
Mask Only, left without check mark.
The results were identical.
Green Screen Key Applied to Image in Premiere Elements 11
Green Screen Key Applied to Image in Premiere Elements 12
If you want, you can post a screenshot of this image whose green was replaced by blue instead of transparency when Green Screen Key Effect was applied in Premiere Elements 12.
Have you compared Green Screen Key with the same image in Premiere Elements 10 and 11, your points of references?
Please look at fxEffects/Keying/Chroma Key and let us know if you get the same green blue happening?
We will be watching for your results.
you were right, the chroma worked where the green key failed, just wondering why? could it be a softeware glitch? but I am good to go, thank you all for the tips
Definitely that particular image needed Chroma Key, not Green Screen Key.
I made of copy of what you posted and worked with that image and the two keying effects.
With the Green Screen Key there was more of a tendency to run into blue instead of green in the keying out of the colored background. Chroma Key and its options did a superior job in controlling the end result.
Look into the preparation of the green background to see if you need to perfect any of the pre-recording prep.
Thanks for the follow up.
Continued success. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions or need clarification on anything written.
Add On...You might want to drag the effects into the clip on the Timeline rather than into the image on the screen. I find that eliminates the Adjustment Layer which is a new feature in Premiere Elements 12. More on that another time.
