          Yes. Look under Effects>Keying for several ways to do it.


          The biggest trick with Green Screen is lighting the background, and then the choice of the color, plus the wardrobe of any actors.


          Good luck,

              One problem you might get is a green halo around a persons head due to the haze effect in cameras or lenses or reflection in the sheen of the face or hair of the green screen behind the actor.

              In TV & movies this is offset by slightly illuminating from behind, the edges only of the face with purple light to counteract the green.

              This is hard to adjust when green screeing in editiing as it is done in real time in a TV of film studio
