Video editing software with chroma keying for 16 bit machin

Jun 27, 2019 2:24PM PDT

Hi
I am looking for a basic video editing software that dose chroma keying, basically removing a particular color from the entire video (usually the back ground)

All the programs I have seen are for 64 bit machines which I don't own!
I think sony Vegas 8 and 9 did it, but getting it from a repeatable downloadable sounce seams difficult

Any ideas please
Thanks

I remember video editing back on old 16 bit Windows (3.1) and choices back then were few.

I'm going with, nope, never saw such. You'll have to wait till you can run a more modern OS. Even Linux on 16 bit didn't have such from memory.

Since few if any 16 bit machines get on the Internet, care to share the make, model and OS in use?

What is that?

I used XP, I ran for years on Windows 2000 but never knew a XP 2000 so this is unknown to me.

The Aptio notepad with 2GB ram is not suitable for such work. Even with 32 bit the edit would take so long the user will likely set themselves on fire.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Microsoft_Windows_versions

Can't find a 2002 there.

And no. Can't say there is such today for a 2GB machine like you noted. You should wait till you can get on a better PC since no one I know will be patient enough as well as no editor that does chroma does this on 2GB RAM.

You can test what Google suggests at https://www.google.com/search?q=32+bit+video+editor+chroma+key&gl=US but there is no way I'm going to test these with just 2GB RAM on an unknown Windows OS today or the future.

There were two versions of XP released in 2002.

Windows XP Tablet PC Edition which was on the Windows XP Microsoft Tablet PC

So my bet is this is Windows XP Media Center Edition but again, you are on a very dated machine and OS so my bet is no one is going to test what you find with the google I gave above.

Repeating so you don't have to look up:
" Can't say there is such today for a 2GB machine like you noted. You should wait till you can get on a better PC since no one I know will be patient enough as well as no editor that does chroma does this on 2GB RAM.

Try a few and see if any do what you ask.
