This, the first part of course taught by 2017 Flame Award winner Mihran Stepanyan, is devoted to a very important theme: high-end chroma keying in features and commercials. You’ll learn about light, color, and channel separation — the basics of traditional film keying — and then you will be shown how to practically apply this information and more via techniques in the digital world. Get the full details over on the course information page.
One of the important things covered is creating a clean plate as well image-based keying concepts and their usage in high-end keying. The course includes an important and useful class on keying of highly compressed media files, such as 4:2:0 chroma sampled video and how to get rid of artifact blocks and preserve detail like hair in this type of media. You will also see how to work with native Red RAW file and, how to use the Neat Video denoiser and get a perfect result.
