What software are people (most likely) using to create custom videos for Colbert's McCain green screen project?

Probably After Effects or Shake, if I had to guess-- something that can be used to quickly key out the greenscreen and comp in the background plate.

you could ask the people who made the videos...they're all on YT, and i'm sure they'd be happy to tell you what software they used. also, browsing here, i found Adobe After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, etc...

Are there free/cheap alternatives to After Effects for people who want to play with green screen technology?

I haven't done it personally, but if you're running OS X, you ought to be able to do simple chroma keying with Quartz Composer, if you're comfortable with that sort of workflow.

I've been planning on picking up a creation station to see what software they include. At thirty bucks, it seems pretty cheap compared to anything 'pro'.
