Holding on to keyed footage
on Oct 10, 2016 at 10:57:31 pm

I need to key several pieces of footage and maintain them, and their alpha channels, for use throughout a project. Is my best strategy to make individual comps for each keyed item and then drop them into the working comps as needed?

Thanks

Oh my, I figured it out. The keying effect (KeyLight in this case) stays with the layer. So a copy and paste of the layer results in a copy with the keying imbeded.

I don't know how frequently this clip gets re-used. If it's a lot, you'd probably be better off prerendering the clip. You eliminate the render time hit you'd incur by invoking Keylight every time you use the clip.
