I am working on a project using alot of green screen work,I have been using chromanator and acheived great results.However my composites have the actors in b/w set against pastel backdrops,thus the edges of the actors are kind of pixely and jagged so I have two questions.What might I do in the future to remedy this in chromanator.And to keep room on my hard drive I erased the original projects,so is there anything I can do in chromy or ae to fix this after the fact.I would appreciate any input

Check to make sure that the 'anti-alias layers' setting is on, as this prevents jagged edges. Also, try playing about using the blur a tiny tiny bit - might make a difference?

As for the delted project files, I don't think that Chromy can do much to sort that out, but some data recovery software might do the trick.

Cheers,
Arktic.

yeah, in the same menu as color difference is something called Alpha Blur or something like that. Set that to 1 or 2 and you should see a better result.
