https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/new/ I used a green screen to record a video and the subject moves their hands up and down several times throughout the recording.  I removed the GREEN using Camtasia 9 from around her, but when her hands move up and down, I get the green color coming through the video.  Any way to minimize or get rid of that?

Thanks so much -- I used Tolerance and Softness and it took it mostly away -- not all the way.  I really appreciate your help!

In the future, depending on your camera, make sure the following also happens.  If possible, the subject is at least six feet from the screen. Everything is well lit.  Your shutter speed is 1/125 - 1/250.  The higher your shutter speed, you will have to adjust your ISO and FStop.  I learned this the hard way.  My first few videos there is quite a bit of green trail.  Now hardly any.  The other thing is when removing the green, put your eye dropper near the hairline.  You'll get a much better removal of green that way.
