Why use our chroma keying service?
Chroma keying video isn’t as simple as clicking on the green or blue and it disappearing, no matter what some YouTube videos tell you. It needs to be tweaked and multiple adjustments made to ensure the perfect key, which is why it makes sense to contact the professionals here at The Cuillin Collective.
I know what you’re thinking. Different types of keys? Well, we offer standard keying with basic masking, meaning that we use Final Cut Pro’s own chroma keying tool for the key. This is a pretty good keying tool but it can’t fix some shooting errors such as wrong camera settings or terrible lighting, which is where the next option may suit you that bit better.
For the more advanced keys we use a program called Keylight. Keylight is widely used in multi-million dollar productions. This can sort nearly every keying problem such as colour leaks, bad lighting and an uneven green screen. The only thing it can’t fix is bad acting!
Now, what if Keylight can’t fix your footage? Well, we can mask the subject frame by frame. Although keying this way it is extremely time consuming, it guarantees a perfect key, 50% of the time it would be easier to re-shoot, but if that’s impossible, then key framing is the way to go.
With the advent of cheap cameras and cheap green screen kits a lot of companies are making their own videos. The only thing they can’t do is key the footage and add the necessary motion graphics or text in the background to give their video that professional look. So why not contact us today to see what we can do for you?
We regularly check competitor websites for chroma keying services to ensure that we deliver a better key for a better price.
