Hello, need some advice!
I have footage of a gal walking through a green screen background. I have shiny/reflective flooring. Reflection on the door jamb. I have a lantern sitting in the background.
When I use AE, does a nice job but I lose part of the lantern no matter what i try (or get gray spots among the lantern). When i export, I get many black dots on floor, and elsewhere on the outside deck. I tried adjusting the black / white despot, I've changed the replace method to Hard Colour... been doing a lot of tutorials and searching. Still doesn't help.
When I use Premiere, does an OK job but the background image flickers. I have tried turning off curves/color correction/Lumetri.... etc. Does not help. I've read in forums that this is a software bug.
I'm no expert so any advice is welcome!

You just didn't refine your key enough. It takes a bunch of work. You just did not adjust the right controls. If we could see your comp with the modified properties revealed (select layer and press the u key twice) we might be able to point you in the right direction. There a bunch of ways to pull a key you have not given us any details. Just a little FYI, I usually do a quick garbage matte around my actor as they move so there's a lot less to key out. It will make your life easier.
Thanks for your reply, I will try to provide more info!
I have a bunch of comps within comps. I followed an advanced green screen keying tutorial and I will try share some screen shots of several different settings.
I created a green screen comp out of the footage which contains a 'Remove green fringe' comp as well as a 'green screen matte' comp. I know I'm missing something, yes. So many variations and controls!
One question i have, how do I garbage matte around this actor when the foreground is to stay put (the only green screen item I need to fix is the "outside" shot. Outside of the patio. I'm stumped on that one as every tutorial says to do that, and you have mentioned it as well.
