Join Steve Wright for an in-depth discussion in this video Primatte: Basic keying and spill suppression, part of VFX Keying: Master Course.
- [Instructor] Primatte is a proprietary green screen…and blue screen keyer developed by Magicka Corporation…and licensed to the Foundry for use in NUKE.…It's actually a three dimensional Chromakeyer,…a very, very sophisticated kind of Chromakeyer…working on completely different principles…than color difference keyers such as Keylight…and Ultimatte.…In this first section, we're gonna take a look…at the theory of Primatte…because it can be a little bit difficult to understand…and control.…
This 3D model represents the basic operating theory…behind Primatte.…Primatte collects all the pixels in the picture…and scatters them into a three dimensional RGB Color cube…represented by this cube and these colored dots.…The pink dots here might represent…some skin tones.…The brown ones over here, a shirt…and the green screen pixels will be clustered…in the center, in the little green cloud.…Primatte will then surround that green cloud…with a Polyhedron and this is how it isolates…the backing colors from the rest of the screen.…
