I purchased both CompositeLabPro and PhotoKey3 at the same time. Did a test on my lighting for green screen.

Keying out green with PhotoKey3 works marvelous. With the same light setup I am having trouble getting rid of green screen with CompositeLabPro.

What am i missing with the CompositeLabPro?

PhotoKey is a bit more automated than CompositeLab. Is it possible you can provide a link to a frame or clip of the video, or at least some additional details about the differences you see when keying?

What key filters, etc. are you applying in CompositeLab? What resolution is the video camera?

Some key grade filters I would recommend using in composite lab are saturation and contrast. But again without an image it's tough to tell...
