Adobe After Effects: 3rd Party Plug-ins: Keying – Going outside the After Effects box

Chapter: Keying

Topic: Keying Software

Although I really like and appreciate the keying plug-ins found in Adobe After Effects Standard and Production Bundles. Nearly every single green screen or blue screen composite that I have done over the last two years, has been completed with the keying capabilities Adobe has included in the application. However, for some people, spending any length of time making adjustments to the built in plug-ins may be too much time taken from the post process. For those times, you may want to go outside the box and take a look at some 3rd party keying plug-ins. [Keylight is now included with After Effects 6.5 Professional.]
