Michele’s Favorite Keyers
Speaking of keyers, I have three favorites that you may be interested in checking out. There are tons of keyers on the market but not all of them give me everything that I want (and Jeremy and I did write the book on keying – See the image on the right!)
In this series, I’m going to give some in-depth information on three of my favorite keying tools that work with After Effects, Premiere Pro, and other tools. The first in the series covers Red Giant’s Keying Suite, which includes Primatte Keyer, Key Correct Pro, and Warp.
Create seamless composites. Chromakey Studio – your one-stop shop. Quick clean-up, light wraps, and mattes. Includes 20 filters & 200+ presets. Cross-host license. The new version in BCC 10 has some great improvements and it’s easy to use and gives nice clean edges.
A full-featured keyer that is the result of our experience in creating hundreds of successful blue and green screen composites.
Using proprietary matte extraction techniques, zMatte quickly and simply creates mattes with minimal parameters even if you are dealing with fine hair detail, smoke, or reflections. It is easy to use, yet provides the needed tools when faced with good, bad, or ugly shots — tools such as multiple matte creations, automatic spill suppression, sophisticated matte and edge manipulation, and color correction.
