What is Chroma Key Fabric?
Chroma Key fabric is 100% dyed Cotton, dyed with proprietary chroma green pigment.
How does it work?
Using a technique called ‘chroma keying‘, whereby two images or videos are layered, the colour range of the foreground image is made transparent, as a result, this allows a separate background film or image to be inserted into the scene. So why green? Green and occasionally the colour blue is used as it is the furthest colour from the shades of the human skin. Originally, blue was used as the main fabric colour but due to the widespread use of blue clothing in TV and Film, this swiftly moved over to green to avoid conflict.
