Digital Film Tools releases zMatte v3

Digital Film Tools is pleased to announce zMatte v3.0 which adds
four new plug-ins: Color Suppress, Frame Averager, Matte Wrap and
Screen Smoother. In addition, there are many enhancements to the
Keyer as well as the other plug-ins. zMatte also now supports
Apple’s fxPlug plug-in format and the Photoshop version sports an
upgraded user interface with new garbage matting features.

zMatte is a full-featured keyer that is the result of our
experience in creating countless successful blue and green screen
composites. Using proprietary matte extraction techniques, zMatte
quickly and simply creates mattes with minimal parameters even if
you are dealing with fine hair detail, smoke, or reflections. It
is easy to use, yet provides the needed tools when faced with
good, bad, or ugly shots — tools such as multiple matte
creation, automatic spill suppression, sophisticated matte and
edge manipulation, and color correction.

zMatte includes a complete set of keying plug-ins comprised of:
Color Suppress for removing blue or green spill light; DeArtifact
to clean up compression artifacts in DV and HD footage; Edge
Composite to color correct, blur or mix only the edge of the key;
Frame Averager for smoothing out film grain and video noise;
Holdout Composite to matte the usually problematic smoke, fire
and explosions; the zMatte Keyer to handle the heavy keying
tasks; Light Wrap to bring background color into the foreground
element; a Matte Generator used to key images not meant to be
keyed; Matte Repair to fix common matte problems; Matte Wrap for
retaining the definition of the matte edges while creating a
smooth blend of transparency starting at the edge of the matte
changing to fully opaque moving inward; and Screen Smoother to
smooth out unevenly lit blue and green screens.
