How to create the perfect key

Learning how to key green-screen correctly

If your approach to keying green screen shots is to slap on a plugin and hope for the best then Splice Vine’s August series on keying and matting by Jeff Foster, author of The Green Screen Handbook, is just for you.  Over four weeks of guest blogging Jeff covers everything from the history of green screen to the finer details of keying shots with reflective materials, opaque materials, see-through materials etc

Jeff talks through his tips and techniques using After Effects CS6 but the techniques on how to pull a believable key can be applied to any keying application. If you want to achieve invisible keys then this post is a goldmine of information.
