For experienced video editors and finishing artists, “keying” is an art. While keying green screen footage can be a challenging task, it is far more difficult when the green (or blue) screen is poorly lit. Factors such as inconsistent lighting, shadows, reflections and camera quality can turn a simple keying shot into a headache.
Found in Boris Continuum plug-ins, Chroma Key Studio is an all-in-one keying tool that combines multiple effects into an integrated AVX plug-in, so editors can avoid nesting. Chroma Key Studio includes parameters for screen enhancement, auto-garbage matte and masking, chroma keying, matte cleanup, matte choking, color correction and light wrap in a single filter.
In this tutorial, product specialist Vin Morreale shows how he salvaged a nasty green screen shot with Chroma Key Studio inside of Avid Media Composer. Also covers Boris Continuum plug-ins: Fast Film Process, Title Studio and Grunge. For more information, visit: borisfx.com
