Experiments: Green Screen

I've been playing with OBS a lot lately. Today I tried something different: use a green screen to spiff up a virtual presentation. Instead of just screen-sharing the presentation, I'd use the laptop camera to film the room with me and a green screen in the background. Using the Chroma Key filter the green screen becomes transparent and shows the underlying window grab from Key Note in the OBS stack.

Here's my test arrangement.

Screen-grabbing video into Zoom or Meet tends to be somewhat problematic, and I didn't get the details right yet. However, getting the weatherman effect is cool and fun. I'm sure, I'll find more uses for this.
