problem with key cleaner
on Jul 12, 2017 at 8:58:43 am

I've keyed greenscreen footage with keylight and added the key cleaner. One moment the image is perfect, the next: it's completely messed up...

with key cleaner


without key cleaner


It happens that the image is fine at first, but after reopening AE, it's not... Any clues?

I think ive found the solution. Key cleaner must be before advanced spill suppressor. WHen it is after...for some reason...you get those artifacts

I'm happy this works for you, unfortunately this makes no difference in my case...
Even when I limit everything to a keylight set to intermediate result and the key cleaner - the distorted bands jump around a bit when changing settings, but I can't seem to get rid of them.

Try this:
1. If GPU is selected for effects in the project settings, disable it
2. Try using refine soft matte effect and instead. I find it to be more suitable for edges refinements in many cases.

Note that any of these automated effects are very sensetive to noise in you footage. If your shot was not done in optimal lighting conditions, you may have to try other approach for your edges.
