I need help removing the background

I'm trying to make a green screen. I masked the moving object, I inverted the mask but creating the green screen is so confusing. I've watched tutorials but for some reason I'm getting the same results. Can someone give me a way to create a green screen that works every time?

Thanks

It has been a while since I posted anything on motion masks. Here is a tutorial from the pro that you may not have seen to give you the basics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cJRt8uffUE .

I followed the tutorial and here is what happens when I try to replace the black with green. The RGB says 0,0,0 so I don't think I'm selecting anything at all

In the video I'm trying to do a mask for an anime video. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong

I can select any color using the dropper, even after I uninstalled the full version of CD8 and installed the trial version.

Any chance you registered the trial version more than 30 days ago? Most features get disabled after that (expand the Download Information tab on this page for the specifics).

OptoData answered first. He has the best answer. The trial limitation would be the problem. Notice in the video that you hesitate and did not follow the tutorial instruction to set the tolerance from 30 to 100%.

Below is my result in creating the green screen .

I only have the trial version. I will likely change my PD 365 Subscription to Diretor Suite

Ok thank you. It doesn't matter if I change the tolerance. It will only select white. I'm sure the full version would work as intended
