This is common I think, I get that same problem. I hope that Apple will update this sometime in the future. If you use a green screen it might work better but how many of us has that?

make sure your background is different from your skin, hair and clothes color, and make sure you don't cast a shadow on your background
it's complicated to do, this shot took me half an hour to set up

Thought it was just me and something went haywire with the instillation. The new effects are cool but yeah, they don't work that well. Macnoviz yours came out perfect but 30 min? Oy vey. I did take your advice and tried it against a white wall. It worked MUCH better but my face was still pixilated. Granted the lighting was not that bright, but then again it usually isn't and the standard effects have always worked fine. Hmph. :rolleyes:

I've found for it to work well my background needs to be light and plain (i.e no clock on the wall, curtains or anything like that) . Even a window plays havoc with the effects.
