  • Re: Transitions between keyed footage

    http://www.thefader.com/2013/07/31/video-annie-back-together/ The first 50 seconds are some British dry humour so don't worry about that. Every single shot had to employ this matte key 3 layer setup given that every shot needed some CC and the transitions. It would really be some much easier as someone has said perhaps in this thread or another

    Hi Just update. Job in full swing using the Matt Key w/Spectramatte using the setup in this post earlier in the thread Good for the pushes and some other effect plugins. Able to add my CC and other filters on the V2 layer so should be able to finish the whole job inside MC which is best. I hadn't thought about dissolves as I didn't think that

    Hi, Impressed. Got it working. I think I have a pipeline for finishing inside MC. I went one stage further. I needed a garbage matte on the keyed footage so added that using the Paint Effect followed by the Spectramatte and this is also working good. I have tried other effects appart from Push, and most work as expected some don't Bad one: Squeeze

    [quote user="leonisa"]that way I get a better keyer that what can be found in Avid FX[/quote] [quote user="drbgaijin"]Maybe not quite accurate. I think that if you know the controls of the Chroma Key in combination with the Matte Choker, you can get a very clean key. But, again, if you are at home in AE and not in Avid FX, then you

    Douglas, Thank you for the explcit example and taking the time to make it. Yes, I misunderstood you. I was under the impression one could circumvent the limitations of the timeline effects by keying footage inside a plugin and then combining that with timeline effects. So AIUI you cannot mix the two pipelines. Either you do all your compositing in Avid

    OK, I just put the Avid FX effect on each clip pulled a quick key. V2 - Clips with Avid FX V1 - BG I put a Push Left - Right in between my clips on V2 and the push effect was using in the background in V1 not jush pushing in my keyed forgeground footage With a dissolve you would never know this.

    Hello, I will try Avid FX now and report back. Yes, I am using Spectramatte (is that what you meant - not Animatte). I am cutting a pop promo and every foreground shot is the artist on greenscreen. I haven't done a job like this in Avid for ages and I am little perplexed that in the such mature product I am running into this strange limitation
