Frame by Frame Masking/Keying?
on Feb 24, 2010 at 10:43:50 am

Hey All!

I've shot some GreenScreen-Footage but it turned out very bad, its impossible to key the Green separated from the yellow suits. So now I'm thinking to mask the green frame by frame in Photoshop, and I'm wondering which tools to use to minimize the time spent working on every frame.

Here are my thoughts so far:
- is their any chance to separate the yellow suits from the background by doing adjustments to the colors, contrast, curves etc.?
- I use layer masks, so for every next frame, I can use the mask from the frame before and just do adjustments. Do you think it's the right way to do it?
- for the heads I'm wondering if I should use the magic wand tool or the Extract-Filter. The magic wand seems to be faster but less accurate. What do you think?
- is their a different tool which does the job better and faster? Maybe I dont know it.

Any tipp would be so much appreciated!!!
Best regards, Simon
