I've been experimenting with keying in VLS and, well, I'm not having much luck. I'm using footage shot for a chromakey "take down" designed to show the difference between various cameras and some of the results others have achieved (using different software and different levels of experience) are very good. (see: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=190061).

I've been going through the video tutorial on keying and key grading but my results remain very poor with lots of green fringing. My question is this - what are the recommendations for achieving the results shown in the sample footage (i.e. taking the footage I'm working with and applying the fixes in the tutorials)? The footage I'm working with should be pretty good, so I am hoping the problem is me, hence my question.

I'm familiar with this: http://support.fxhome.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=40&nav=0,2,4,38

Okay, seems that adding a "greenscreen" filter on top of the plate takes care of the green spill. Interesting.

I suspect Spill Suppression might be a better option for suppressing Spill.

Found it.

I did not see the spill suppression earlier, but now I do.

Even better!
