- [Voiceover] Hello and welcome to Lynda.com's Ultra CS3 essential training. I am your host, Adobe certified instuctor Chad Perkins and what we're going to do in the course of this training series is introduce you and get you familiar with the basic workings of Ultra. Ultra's a new application acquired recently by Adobe Systems, used for keying. Ultra also comes with Adobe's powerhouse video software application Premiere Pro. Basically Ultra is a very powerful keying application.
I'll explain what keying is a little bit more in the next movie. Basically what it allows us to do is composite footage such as this model here on top of cool backgrounds. Now one of the cool things I really like about Ultra that you'll see as we go through this training series is that Ultra was designed to be a standalone application. It wasn't designed to come with Premiere Pro. So it's actually a very full featured little program here. So as we go through this training series you'll see that Ultra can do a lot more than just get rid of a green screen, which it does remarkably well.
It also is a nice little compositing tool. It also comes with a whole wealth of backgrounds and all sorts of stuff that we're going to be looking at as well. So let's just jump right in to it and talk a little bit more about what keying is in the next movie.
