You may know that we have a new edition of Green Screen Made Easy, 2nd Ed., coming out in the next couple of months. If you have the first edition, this is probably 85% new content, so it will be worth your while to pick up the new edition.

Here’s an oldie, dug up from the vaults! If you missed the podcast I did for Red Giant TV on May 5, 2009, about Primatte Keyer and Key Correct Pro, and it is surprisingly still very relevant. It’s not just another “here’s how to use the tools” type of video, but I get deep into keying technique with tips to optimize your keying potential.
