I am new here, and am close to making a purchase of PhotoKey. I downloaded the PhotoKey demo, and kicked its tires with a couple of shots I was able to grab, against a relative's green screen. Talk about being impressed? Indeed I was - and greatly so. I found it almost obscene that such a monstrously capable program could be had at such an affordable price point. I am as new to chroma-keying as I am to this forum, and hope you don't mind the question I am about to ask.
I had downloaded the PhotoKey demo, but now see that there is a PhotoKey2 available. I was about to purchase that newer version, but decided that I would wait a bit, until I could amass a few more funds by which to avail myself of the package which includes a studio lighting kit. Searching through the product line a little deeper, I thought of the 'batch' program version, and wondered if I should just go with the PhotoKey2 - for now, and maybe upgrade at a later time - or spring for the batch version, at this time.
I could be wrong, but the 'batch' program seems to stem from the previous PhotoKey version. PhotoKey2 has the 'Masking' capabilities, with the 'Batch' program version showing no such indication of same. So it seems that I might gather the benefit of 'Batching', with the particular version featuring that - but lose the 'Masking' feature of the PhotoKey2 version.
If I am misinterpreting something here, please shed some illuminating light. As mentioned, I will most DEFINITELY be getting ONE of the versions, and any help in this would be most appreciated.
Advanced thanks to all.
