Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring third-party alternatives, part of Green Screen Techniques for Video and Photography.
Rich Harrington: All right, so Abba, you're a big fan of third-party tools as well, and there are…some great ones out there for keying. What's one of your favorites?…Abba Shapiro: Well, one of the ones I like to use is onOne software, they have something called Perfect Mask.…You can either get it by itself or you can buy it as a suite, but I like the fact that…it's easy, it's quick, and it deals with translucency really well.…Rich: So in order to run this, this can't be a Smart Object so I'll rasterize that layer…first, and then it's just under the Automate Menu, right?…Abba: Right, when you install some third-party software it's under the Filter Menus.…
In this case, it's under Automate, and you would go under Automate and select Perfect Mask.…Rich: We're just going to run this as a demo here, you can download it and try it yourself.…It's going to prepare the image, and it's going to take a look at it.…Now there are lots of controls, be sure to head in over to the onOne site if you want…to take a look at all of these options.…
