Hey i've been considering upgrading to visionlab from fxlab for all the extra features etc.., but in the demo vid there's a pre-key grade that is added to some footage to make it easier to work with, which is it??? or what is the combination of it to make the pre-key grade??

Pre-Key Grade is simply grading your video to get a better chroma key (greenscreen) result. However, it will no affect the final look of your film (except for the better chroma key results razz).

There's no single fix for pre-key grading, the filters required will be different for every clip.
