2 Drag the key output of the Sky Removal node into the alpha output.

The key data is applied to the clip’s alpha channel, thereby affecting its appearance in
the Timeline and upon export. This behavior is different from the way the key data
behaves when it is contained within the Node editor. In that context, it can be used only
to determine which parts of the image are affected for grading (or effects) purposes.

3 Enter the Media page.

4 In the Other > Images subfolder of the Media storage, locate the Sky_Stock.jpg file,
and drag it into the media pool’s Graphics bin.

If the sky image’s colors appear distorted in the Viewer, it is because they are impacted
by the color management of the project.
