Recently I've lost all my FX Presets!!!?!

So I'm having to redownload them, a long boring task.

The one I sorely miss at the moment was a GreenScreen Grade Object that helped smooth the edges out once you had Chroma Keyed.

I've tried looking on this site to redownload but I've not found it.
Can anyone help with a link or a good search word other than GREEN?

Cheers

Hi

Not sure of an exact preset, at least not for Composite Lab which i use, but a simple Spill Suppression can get rid of the green and blue spill 9hence the name) and reduce the jagged and bleeding of the lines of the composite. Another technique would be to apply a gaussian blur and set it to about 3 or 4. That can help to smooth edges as well.

I have a few more techniques listed in my tutorial here (though it is for CLab, it should work with vison Lab as well)

Again, I'm sorry I don't know a specific preset. Will look a bit though.

P.S. Did you try searching by category? Like composite and vision lab? or Grading and Vision lab?

Cheers for that DVStudio, for your helpful reply. It's certainly given me some starters and I feel less stuck.
Will take a look at your tutorial

Many thanks again
