Just as there are great keyers built into Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro, there are a ton of third-party keyers. Whichever one you choose is really a matter of personal preference and what task you need to do. In this video, Richard Harrington walks you through how to use Red Giant to key green-screen footage.
- While there are many different plugin companies out there,…Red Giant is well established,…offering several different tools for Premiere Pro…and After Effects.…They have a bundle called the Keying Suite…that offers a lot of different tools,…and while we can't cover them all,…I'd like to show you a few that are useful.…Let's start here with the sequence labeled Red Giant,…and I'm going to select my footage layer.…From the Effects menu, I'll go down to the Primatte Keyer,…which is part of the Red Giant package.…
This allows you to do a key, and it's similar to Key Light,…but a little bit different.…For example, you'll notice that there's the ability here…to choose from different footage type to clean it up…and remove some artifacts built in, which is nice.…Additionally, I can click Auto,…and it will analyze the shot…and attempt to get a key for me.…And as a one-click solution, that's pretty enticing.…We also have the ability to clean this up a little bit.…
So I can use the Clean Background command here…and just click to continue to refine.…
