Join Steve Wright for an in-depth discussion in this video How spill suppression works, part of VFX Keying: Master Course.
- [Narrator] The despill operation requires two steps.…First, a map of the spill is created…that I cleverly named the spill map.…Second, the spill map is applied to the green screen…with some operation, like subtraction,…to remove the spill.…Let's take a look at a very simple despill operation,…simply taking green minus the red.…Let me hook up my sampler node here.…We'll open that up,…sample the frame.…
The sampler node cuts a line right across the picture…here and plots the RGB values.…This over here on the left is the left side…of the green-screen.…The section in the middle is our character.…The section on the right is the right side…of the green-screen.…We can see that in the backing region,…the green is much greater than the red,…which is a good green-screen.…Notice that the green is lower than the red…on the character.…This is very important.…What I've done is I've set up a simple operation here,…where we're going to subtract the green channel…from the red channel, and then make a spill map with that,…and subtract that from the picture to see what happens.…
