Has anyone tried Chroma Key in Final Cut Pro X?...if so... does it allow you to apply filters to the keyed footage? (didn't seem possible in iMovie)

Yes you can apply filters to the keyed footage. Just tried it. The trick is the keyer must be the first in the effects stack.

Can you tell me what kind of results you've got with the keyer in X? I've always felt that FCP's keyer was inferior to Adobe's and I'm hoping there has been an improvement. I'm not a big user of Premier, but I can get a perfect key using their plug in within about 30 seconds, whereas I can never get one of the same quality in FCP.

FWIW, I was playing with a greenscreen shot last night, and just dropped the keying effect on it and the key was perfect. The shot was done right, so that surely helped, but I was really happy with that key. I don't happen to have any badly shot greenscreen around so I don't know how it would work if the shot itself needed a lot of cleanup.

Best,
John

The key I had shot is excellent. I was still getting jaggies in FCP Studio though. When I brought the same footage into Premiere it keyed out perfectly.

I'm glad to hear the keyer has been upgraded in X. That may be a big enough reason on its own for me to jump into X. I know there has been a lot of negative talk about X, and I'm sorry to hear it won't open FCP Studio files, but the rest of the interface, and the work it does behind the scenes looks pretty promising to me.

too bad there isn't a simple "drop shadow" filter....
