Primatte Keyer for Avid
Red Giant Software today announced that now supports Avid non-linear editing systems and Discreet combustion 3 desktop compositing software. Previously available as an After Effects plug-in, Primatte Keyer's enhanced versatility adds increased functionality to the production pipeline of independent filmmakers and visual effects artists. Primatte Keyer enables users to extract keys from any color background. The software overcomes matte extraction challenges including uneven lighting, subtleshadows, and edge light contamination (spill) prior to compositing. Three versions of Primatte Keyere 1.6 are available: Adobe After Effects and Discreet combustion 3 ($500), Avid Media Composer Adrenaline ($1000, AVX version), and Avid Xpress Pro ($500, Editors version).
