A lot of folks have a tough time deciding where they should do their keying within the Adobe workflow. You see, you can do suitable keys both inside both Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. In this video, Richard Harrington points out when it is a good time to key green-screen footage in Premiere Pro.
- A lot of folks have a hard time deciding where to key.…You see, you can get good results both in premiere pro,…and after effects so deciding where you should work…can be a bit tricky.…What I like to point out is that premiere pro…is best at editing so if you need real time performance,…for video and audio as you try to rough out your story,…or if you just want to get extremely fast keys done,…premiere pro works quite well.…This allows you to really do the first key,…putting the story together and perhaps,…depending upon your deadline,…getting results that are good enough.…
Let's explore the process.…Now, in this case I've opened up a basic timeline,…and you can see the standards of keying.…We have a backdrop, and a green screen layer.…Now, the second instance, the footage has already…been keyed and what we've done here,…is remove the green background,…as well as made a little bit of a change in color.…If we take a look for example,…at the footage plate you'll see that I've adjusted…the skin tones a bit to match the background lighting.…
