I was planning on purchasing Primatte or some other Matte/Key Plugin for roughly $300 but decided to see if there were any advancements to the keying effects in Premiere since I last had need for them a few years ago.
Ultra Key seems pretty good. I tried it on a still image which had a green background and liked the way it looked. I have yet to try it on a green-screened moving video.
Can Ultra Key do a job comparable to Primatte, for example?
I've seen a lot of terrible green screen compositing examples on Youtube. I assume part of this is due to the artistic talent levels and technical levels of the users.
I know it's possible to get "perfect" green-screen compositing. It's done all the time in the movies. Can Premiere's Ultra Key do the job or do I have to get 3rd part software to be ultimately satisfied?
Composites should be unnoticable. In the right hands can Ultra Key produce "perfect, ie unnoticable, composites?
Ultra Key is fine and very capable for a well shot key.
After Effects 'Key Light' has more grunt and capability again.
I'll check out the AE version. Thanks.
