Red Giant TV Ep 18: Compositing Tips from ‘Greenscreen Made Easy’

Here’s an oldie, dug up from the vaults! If you missed the podcast I did for Red Giant TV on May 5, 2009, about Primatte Keyer and Key Correct Pro, it is surprisingly still very relevant. It’s not just another “here’s how to use the tools” type of video, but I get deep into keying technique with tips to optimize your keying potential.

If you’re interested in learning more about these products, Toolfarm has Red Giant Tools at 10% off every day.

  • Red Giant Keying Suite – Keying Suite is a complete set of professional tools that make your keying look seamless and sells the realism of your composite. Get great results for basic keying situations as well as multi-step composites and difficult shots like low light or choppy footage.
  • Red Giant Primatte Keyer – Quality, speed, control. That’s what you need from a professional chromakey tool and Primatte Keyer delivers. Version 5.0 gives new levels of automation and efficiency with a reorganized interface, default settings that give great results, and tools to quickly tweak your key. An improved Auto Compute and the new Adjust Light tool are the special sauce in Primatte 5.0, creating an accurate key in a few clicks. Use the new Hybrid Matte for unprecedented control in keeping matte edges clean and a new Smart Sample algorithm for smarter foreground selection. Whether you are creating a documentary film, an indie production, news station promo or music video, Primatte 5.0 is an industry-loved solution that unlocks the secret to an easy, automatic key.
  • Red Giant Key Correct – Key Correct is an integral part of keeping your composite look natural and realistic. This set of 15 plug-ins can be used to soften alpha channels, match foreground and background colors, fix outlines, and clean up noise. Key Correct is the secret ingredient for top-quality results from popular keyers like Primatte Keyer (our favorite!), Keylight and Ultimatte. You can also download a free trial of any Red Giant plug-in.

Updates: Red Giant Colorista II 1.1.0 and Magic Bullet Looks 2.1.3

Colorista II 1.1.0 and the Magic Bullet Looks 2.1.3 update include fixes so that each program will no longer pull black frames in the secondary keyer in Premiere Pro 7.2. Both of these tools are included in the Red Giant Color Suite. 

The Color Suite had a maintenance release last week also, so this is newer.
