    What about using the alpha channel for that?

    Just save as a 32 bit targa, tiff or what ever you use and the alpha will be embedded. Don't use the green screen unless you are having a joke with us here.

    Are you kidding?

    Yes we understand but that not how you do that. You need to save your image in an 32bit format so you have an alpha. TGA32 or Tiff32 or exr. You can find the alpha channel in photoshop in the channels window. ctrl click on the alpha thumbnail and press delete to delete the background to get the photoshop transparency thing I think you are after. Making things green is NOT a way to do this.

    Ha ha I remember doing the same at some point in the past when I started with 3D. It's actually legitimate technique but rather pointless when you can embed the alpha, also, if that was your plan you didn't light your Green screen evenly.
