a better way to key water
on Jun 21, 2010 at 6:10:29 pm

I am keying the Water Tides 2 element over an image. Basically it is water splashing around over a black background. The options in blend are luma, screen, etc. Screen seems to work best but the highlights are pretty transparent. Any suggestions on making the water more visible?
I am playing with contrast and threshold. While they do make the highlights more visible it is losing its detail.
thanks

emitters have not worked for me, I need more of a water slowing filling the screen.

Can you post a still- that would help to see what you're trying to do. Shift Apple 3.
