Hi Everyone!

I just looking for some pretty good tool for chromakeying, and I am wondering if somebody has very good experience with doing this deal with Chromanator. The Footages were shot by DVX100a camcorder in 24p and 24pa mode.

Thanks in advance.

I haved used After Effects and Combustion. I have to say with all honesty, Chromanator is just as able to key as these programs. If not easier.

Why not download the demo from here and see for yourself.

Tutorials can be found here

Ok, thank you! I will try anyway.
Another angle of it: Is it possible to key it in alpha mode?
I mean without real background, just remove the Green or Blue, and save it as uncompressed but with alpha channel?

Yes, I believe so. What is it you are wanting to do?

I want to have the FG and BG separated, b/c it's very flexible to do some special montage in NLE.

Chromanator cannot export with alpha. This is something we're looking into addressing for the future.
