one thing thats not good at all about chromanator is that you cannot key out blue/green etc. or even use garbage mattes on still images. the image has to be turned into video before chromanator will be able to use these tools on it. i spent 30 mins last night before i discovered this problem. so then i tried making video out of a rectangular shaped picture in Premier...and it squashed the picture down to fit the 720x480 requirements of the standard video. so i could not use this picture in Chromanator and also key out the background without having it be all squashed. sucks.

I think this was fixed with the PR2 release? If it wasn't it is fixed in the version I'm using so it will be ok in the final release.
