Aplha mask and compositing tool

Idea

To build a tool which lets one alpha mask a green screen image composite that image with a background.

Implementation

openimageio library was used to input, display and write images. Various keyboard presses enable different operations like writing, moving back and forth between images and so on. Alpha masking was first done using binary mask and an advanced greyscale mask was tried.

The petro vlahos algorithm and spill suppression extensions were successfully implemented. The alpha masked image was composited onto a background.

Results
