Worth the buy? All I need is a good keyer.

I already own, Final Cut Studio 2, which includes Motion 3 and Final Cut Pro 6 has a keyer, and I also have After Effects CS3, I will do some green-screen work, and need a good keyer, should I get composite lab? Or do I have enough for keying?

I suggest that you take a look at the demo and you can see for yourself.

What one person sees as good, could seem shocking to other people wink

IMHO, CompositeLab is a great product and does exactly what is described on the product description page and, more importantly, it does it well.

To add my view too. We use After Effects, Fusion and VisionLab. They all have their pro's and con's, but for keying FXHome products make the job far easier and even better - quicker!

There are a lot of keying tools in FXHome products that far out weigh those found in Fusion and After Effects.

My advice is if you are serious about getting a good key - get FXHome products - and best of all they are very competively priced.

I'm actually going to say that you shouldn't get it. I own it and love it, but its painfully slow on my intel mac. It might be a good option if you had one of the last generation quad G5's, but if you are running intel its not worth it. Especially when you have after effects, which I assume has a good keyer.
