green-screen background remove

Jan 3, 2014 at 11:19 AM
Hi !

I am working on a photo software for desktop PC that works on Windows 8. I would like to be able to remove the green background from the photo.

I'm a beginner in image manipulation, i found some cool links ( like http://www.quasimondo.com/archives/000615.php ), but I can't transale it in c# code.

I'm using a webcam (with aforge.net) to see a preview and take a picture. I tried color filters but the green background isn't really uniform, so this doesn't work.

How to do that properly in C#?

Thanks !

I have no experience with removing a green screen but you could try what is being suggested here: http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14394. Or try the tricks from here: http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/masking/#bg_remove. If you need more help please post an example image I can use.
