Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Key cleanup, part of After Effects CC 2018: VFX Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Keylight is great…for pulling our initial key,…but we can further refine the edges of our matte…and remove the last traces of our green screen…through the use of a few extra effects.…So previously, we had our foreground layer here…set with the Keylight effect.…And if we dial down here and look under effects,…we'll see that under view we're using final result.…Let's go ahead and make sure…that we're using full resolution here.…And as we zoom in, we can see some of the artifacting…and unwanted side effects…that the final result view brings us.…
We're getting a bit of noise here…in some of the darker areas…and we're also getting this dark halo around our talent.…Let's look over here,…you'll see it noticeably here for her arm and down in here.…If we toggle this final result back to intermediate result,…we'll see that we've lost some of the grain,…but we've introduced back the color casting,…that was the green screen bouncing light…back onto the actors…and we're of course getting that green halo around them.…
