I'm experiencing problems of posterization looking effects after rendering. Anyone help me on this. I read something regarding this I think somewhere relating to an image with too much sharpness, however the image 'm using is significantly blurred.

Hi - could you give a us a bit more info?
What program are you using? What effects are you adding? Can you post an example image of the problem?

Pure guesswork here, but are you MPEG compressing at too high a ratio? It would explain a loss of resolution and blockiness/banding if that's what you're suffering. Post some examples and/or try increasing the bitrate for the encoding if it's going out to an MPEG/MJPEG format.

I am using Composite Lab I purchased last year. The files were created in Adobe Premiere as .avi files, imported directly into Composite Lab. I am using the green key color difference effect, and the posterization occurs on my background layers.

I've moved this thread to the apropriate forum (the CompositeLab help section)
Any chance you could upload a still image of the problem?

What render settings are you using? Do you see the problem when you're working on the project inside CompositeLab?

Currently I don't see the problem in CompLab, only after rendering. I am rendering multi layer, QuickTime format. One thing to note, I discovered it is happening on backdrops I apply a blur filter on , i.e. zoom blur.

Appears it was the render settings - I switched to DV NTSC and also 16:9 which was the source format and all is well. Thanks for your help. Any great tutorials on maximizing green screen keying?
