You load three clips into the Keyer to create a composite: a front clip, a back clip, and a key-in clip. The key-in clip, which is usually the same as the front clip, is used to create the matte for the front clip.
You can also access the Keyer in Action and as a node in Batch and the Modular Keyer. See Keyer Node and Accessing the Colour Corrector and the Keyer from Action.
To access the Keyer module:
- In the EditDesk menu, select and enable Effects from the Menu Priority box.
- Click Keyer.
- Select the front, back, and key-in clips. Make sure the front, back, and matte clips are the same resolution. If not, resize them. See Accessing Resize and Resize Settings.
Use the S option on the Keyer button on the EditDesk
to automatically load the same clips used in the previous session. Click the S option, and then select the destination.
- Select the destination.
The Keyer appears.
