View Full Version : Not the usual Chromakey question.

12-19-2007, 09:56 AM
Hi all, I have just installed VT5 and so far so good, but.............

I've been playing with the chromakey using Newteks demo footage and the new preview modes on the adjustments.

The overall key quality is quite good but I have a fringe down the right hand side that just wont go.

If I were using a traditional studio switcher I would suspect a timing issue between the mat and fill.

It seems to do it on a live or recorded source, any ideas anyone?

It would help if you post a screen grab. But I'm guessing you are seeing the edge of the 480 size frame. Is this DV footage? If you shrink the footage is there a black edge on the right and left?
You should be able to crop this edge off with the crop tools. If needed, you can do this, then render the file with alpha.

Then again, I might be guessing at the wrong thing??? :D

Ted this isn't a fringe on the edge of frame, it's on the keyed subject (i.e. the person in front of the camera).
