The first keyer we're going to look at is Primatte.…Now, this has been around for a long…time, and it's currently being sold by Red Giant.…This keyer only works inside of After Effects.…Alright, I've got the clip selected and…let's choose Effects > Primatte > Primatte Keyer.…Now, it's a pretty straight forward keyer,…and it starts by just clicking Auto Compute,…and it will attempt to analyze the backdrop and pull the key for you.…
Now, I've got a couple of different backdrops back here,…and I want to talk about some of the options.…One of the things I like here is…the ability for it to adjust the overall lighting.…As we scroll down, you'll see we have the ability to clean things up a bit.…Now, by viewing the individual matte, it…gets a bit simpler to see what's happening.…And this allows you to look for any problems.…For example, if there's an area in the background…that needs clean up, you can go ahead and click.…The fine-tune controls let you go through and refine…some of the things like spill at the edges.…
