Portland, Ore. - Red Giant announced Version 5.0 of its Primatte Keyer professional green-screen tool for extracting keys from any color background, updated with enhanced automation and efficiency.
Three automated tools are designed to provide artists choice and flexibility in their VFX workflow: Auto Compute, Adjust Light, and Smart Sample.
Auto Compute is now an easy-to-access button with an improved algorithm and spot-on default settings; Adjust Light is a brand new tool that evens out background colors for accurate background removal; and Smart Sample generates great results using smart foreground sampling and a histogram pass.
Primatte Keyer V5.0 is available immediately as a standalone application, or as part of the Red Giant Keying Suite.
Primatte Keyer V5.0 is built on chromakey technology and enhanced with professional features to create mattes for any object shot against any solid color, including difficult shots, such as blue jeans against a blue screen.
Primatte Keyer V5.0 is available immediately and is priced at $499 for new users, or as a $99 upgrade for existing users.
