Description

In this series of lessons, we will learn how to key a greenscreen using multiple Keyer supertools to capture as much detail as possible. Using multiple Keyers, we will be able to focus our efforts and create a better final matte. We will begin this project by importing our footage into Composite and analyzing the job ahead of us. Then we will create garbage masks to break apart our person into manageable pieces. We will then key out our screen using the Keyer supertool. After that, we will analyze the best way to remove noise on each layer. Finally we will focus on the hair and all the detailed roto and keying work involved. We will complete the project by doing some heavy-duty rotoscoping work on the bottle and re-compositing it into our final output. Software required: Composite 2011 and up.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, I'm Chris, with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk authorized publisher. In this series of lessons, we'll learn how to key a green screen using multiple keyer supertools, to capture as much detail as possible. Using multiple keyers, we'll be able to focus our efforts, and create a better final matte. We'll begin this project by importing our footage into composite, and analyzing the job ahead of us. Then, we'll create garbage masks to break apart our person into manageable pieces. We'll then key out our screen using the keyer supertools various options. After that, we'll analyze the best way to remove noise on each layer. Finally, we'll focus on the hair and all the detailed roto and keying work involved. We'll complete the project by doing some heavy-duty rotoscoping work on the bottle, and recompositing it into our final output. This series of lessons will illustrate how we can go beyond using a single keyer to solve our green screen problems. This will allow us to create mattes that capture much more detail and achieve a much higher degree of accuracy. So, with that, let's go ahead and get started.
