I'm going to do a perspective corner pin to replace the screen in this bit of stock footage, but what's the best way to remove the green spill on the edge of the kid's fingers, using only stock AE effects?

I know I could simply apply "Spill Suppressor" from the "Obsolete" effects folder and then click the eyedropper on the green, but there has to be a more elegant, non-obsolete way? All advice gratefully received!

Have you tried the Advanced Spill Suppressor in the keying menu?

Also, in the animation presets, under Image-Utilities, there is a really handy preset that applies Keylight, Key Cleaner, and Advanced Spill Suppressor all at once. I'd recommend trying that as a starting point on any keying job.

Heh! Just dropped that on, and it's done - thanks! ☺

I'd been messing around with Keylight and not getting the effect I wanted...

Yeah, I don't particularly like Keylight's de-spilling. Thus the animation preset that uses the Advanced Spill Suppressor effect instead! :)

You can also use that spill as a key to pass through the color that is coming from the screen in your final comp. The actor would naturally have a color spill that emanates from the monitor and it will only appear where the green is spilling onto their face.
