Finally got my green screen set up
Made a short 3 second video to show the problem I face
Played a bit with camera settings etc
Best I could get was this fuzziness around the edges of subject (hand or face)
and wierdness at edges of background

Can you post a screen capture of what you're seeing?

Also, let us know what device created your video and what format and resolution it is. Some highly compressed video formats aren't able to give your colors crisp edges.

Onl,y screen capture I can do is linked in my message

Going to steam out the green screen's wrinkles and
reset the lighting to see if that changes anything. .

Okay
I have steamed the screen
Repositioned it
Put one more light on the screen
Below is what I am looking at for a test run

Are you saying you're using webcam video and video recorded with OBS software for your key shot?

That's not very high quality video. And, as I said earlier, lower quality and more highly compressed video won't give you crisp edges. You might be able to shave off some of that fringing -- but if you want a good key shot, you really should use at the very least a good AVCHD camcorder with good lighting.

You may find my tutorial helpful, even if it was made a few years ago on an older version of the program.

Thank you
Using Razer Kiyo camera
Found out most of my problems were solved by adding 2 more lights to the green screen and putting the screen a little further behind me.
Not quite as sharp as your video yet but I am learning slowly that i am a slow learner
