Could the ChromaKeying filter be redone?

I was wondering if the ChromaKeying filter (that simple one where you add blue or green "screens" to your video) could be redone, but WITHOUT the faded, soft edge to it? It's an awesome plugin, but it's not working with the program I use (AVIedit) because that extra soft, translucent edge to the shapes won't register as the correct color, and therefore that part won't key out while the rest of the solid color does. This wouldn't be a problem if the entire background were to be a color, but in my clone test, half the screen is a green screen. So, in the final film, it's a nice result with two clones looking at eachother, but there is a very noticeble soft, green line going down the center of the screen (the stuff that wasn't keyed out).

So, could the plugin possibly be redone without the use of the soft edges by any chance? Thanks a million if anyone can do it!!! lol

Check the plug-in variations again. I'm sure I put hard-edged variations in there as well. I'll check it out.

OK, I just took a look at the plug-in, and it is a bit of a problem. The edges on that square image should be tightened up. I'll try to get around to fixing it soon. Until then, you could just use two triangles to fill the space. The edges on them are good.

Mission Accomplished.

I corrected the alpha channels and re-posted the plug-in.
