Working with green-screen footage can be a daunting task. The Adobe suite of video tools provides a wide array of choices, but how do you know which to use? This course aims to answer that important question. By providing an overview of the import process, and then moving into Premiere Pro, After Effects, and popular third-party keying tools, author Rich Harrington guides you through the keying process. Learn how to use the Ultra Keyer, KEYLIGHT, Primatte Keyer, zMatte, and more, while discovering ways to work with transparency and create great backdrops in Photoshop.
