    Refine Soft Matte tool not working properly.


      Every tutorial I see online (like this one: Adobe After Effects CC: How to Use the Refine Edge Tool - YouTube ) about using the Refine Soft Matte tool is just slapping it on a keyed-out piece of footage and it automatically gives a softer key that leaves small details like strands of hair still in your shot. However, every time I apply it to my keyed-out footage, it gives me a strange halo around my person. Here is a screenshot to show you what I mean:





      Any help on what I should be doing differently would be much appreciated!


      P.S. I know that title of that youtube tutorial say's "Refine Edge Tool" and not "Refine Soft Matte", but he talks about it in the second half of the video.
