Asking a similar question recently on this list I got told that a lot is
possible using shaders. See if you have a folder named 10.glsl on your
OS somewhere that could hold Gem examples for shaders. 

Searching the mailing list archive
for "shaders"
might give you results as well.

Look for help patches

and the [pix_chroma_key] object and its documentation perhaps.
