Which ScreenFlow product does green screen removal for Live Streaming on an old Mac?

There are so many choices. I am not sure which is the best (and cheapest) for me.

I need to remove the green screen from the video feed, and replace it with a static image, since I am using WebinarJam for a live web seminar.

Which ScreenFlow product handles this green screen removal on a Mac? I have an old Mac, and hope it would work on a 2013 Mac with the following hardware:

Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics: Intel HG Graphics 4000 1536 MB

If I must, I would consider a machine upgrade to use ScreenFlow, but hope I can get it running with my current gear.

Thanks.

It's not so much the year your hardware was produced, it's the OSX version you've installed.

So long as you're running latest OSX, you can run latest ScreenFlow 8.x series code.

With ScreenFlow you just record with a green screen behind you + inside ScreenFlow to your Chroma Key background insertion prior to exporting/rendering your video.

I suppose you can still use WebinarJam + you'll never get the same quality as using a true green/white/whatever screen background + replacing the background with an image during video rendering.

Sorry, I just found a question...

> prior to exporting/rendering your video.

I have no problem replacing the green screen on a static video. Do your instructions also apply to live streaming?
