First off, I've been an Avid DS guy for many years. I've been dabbling in PrP for a little while now, since I no longer work for my old company. I am really loving what I see and have been experiencing. This forum included. Lots of great tips and smart people. I have been reaserching PrP over the last couple of months, and it seems Adobe is really focused on the professional editing community. They see a future in their products for us. I do lots of compositing and effect work and PrP kills Final Cut any day. "Keyframing", is all I have to say to win that battle. Any way, I hope to be surprised about a lot more in the future coming from Adobe products.
Now, on to my question.....Is there an invert toggle on the four point garbage matte? Seems too easy to not be there. Trying to matte out some tracking markers on a green screen.
Believe it or not...you cant invert it and you cant soften it!
Someone will advise you to make a Feature Request I am sure.
Meantime..pop into AEFX to do what you want maybe.
BTW - what are the tracking markers doing inside the garbage matte ? Would a 16 point GM help?
Thanks for the quick response. Seems like an easy request. But then again, I'm not a coder, so of course it sounds easy. I will put one in for sure.
Haven't done any dynamic links yet. Will give it a try.
The tracking markers are on the green screen. I wanted to just put a garbage matte after the ultra keyer to rid them. Not much tracking needed, more of a safety net on the set I guess.
I would GM the marks before the Key if they are not required.
I also would most likey go to AEFX ..fix the shot and then come back with an intermediate instead of Dynamically Linking
Intermediate from AEFX can be either composited or as keyed clip with alpha.
If you want to invert a Garbage Matte add the Alpha Adjust effect and set it to Invert Alpha.
If you want to soften a Garbage Matte, drop it on a white Color Matte, add a Blur for feather and use the Color Matte as a Track Matte.
But file a feature request anyway.
