Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Keylight 101, part of After Effects CC 2018: VFX Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Keylight is arguably the best keyer available…in the default installation of After Effects.…It's generally my first stop for any keying needs I have,…as it tends to get me great results quickly.…Here in this movie,…we'll examine a few of its main settings.…In this composition I've got a plate of actors…on a green screen, and behind it…we've got a plate of a background for the warehouse…that these actors are going to sit it.…The idea here is that we'll key out these actors…and we'll duplicate them, shrink them down,…and create a crowd with them.…First things first, let's go ahead and remove…this area here, this pole and patch of ground here,…with some garbage masks.…
Let's go ahead and select layer one.…We'll switch over to our rectangle tool…and we'll just click and drag and get rid of that pole.…Let's switch over our mask…from the add mode, to subtract mode.…We'll do the same thing for this patch of ground down here.…We'll set that to subtract, as well.…Now that we've done that,…let's go ahead and add in our Keylight effect.…
