While there are several keyers included with Adobe After Effects, one of the best to use is KEYLIGHT. It’s a third-party tool that was bundled with After Effects, and it's been used on several feature films. In this video, join Richard Harrington as he demonstrate how to refine green-screen footage keyed with KEYLIGHT in After Effects.
