Blue Screen

FilterFrei0r-bluescreen0r

This effect allows you to do Chroma Keying (Chroma key compositing/Green Screen) on Kdenlive. That is you can use the Blue Screen effect to generate alpha channel information allowing two video tracks to be combined using the Composite transition.

Note
Alternatively you can combine two video tracks together using the screen transition (if one of them is filmed on a black background).

Tutorial 2

Another video on chroma keying / green screen. This one also shows you how to use rotoscoping to remove stuff you do not want from out of your frame. It also means you don't need to fill your whole frame with the green screen either.

See also keysplillm0pup effect in the Misc group. The keyspillm0pup effect can be used to improve the edges of the blue screen effect - when edge problems are caused by "keyspill". Keyspill is when the color of the screen used for colorkeying spills onto the subject due to light reflection.

See also Color Selection which also does color based alpha selection.
