chromakey workflow

Looking for general advice on a chromakey workfow. I'm always debating whether I should set up my timeline of just keyed footage and then export it as an Animation and then start a new sequence and add BG material to that, or simply to insert the BG in the original sequence. I "unrender" before exporting. Any suggestions, pros, cons would be appreciated. I shoot in DVCProHD and key with Primatte PRO. I dont have any peripheral hardware for my quadcore.

thanks
Rick

I always edit my project and get it where I like it. I then key the footage and add the background behind it in FCP. Then I export out the final video. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

It also depends on what you're doing with the chroma key.

For a plain ol' "weatherman against the weather map" kind of look, FCP will do the job.

If you're trying to key a guy into a hand-held background and have him cast a shadow on a wall in that background, you're looking at doing it in Motion or AFter Effects.
