turn chroma key subject black
on Apr 14, 2011 at 5:45:20 pm

Hello,

I am looking at "blacking out/silhouetting" my subject. It was shot with a green screen. I chroma keyed the subject and now need to turn the subject completely black. Is there a process in F.C.P. to turn the subject black or possibly a plug-in. I tried 3-color correction along with a few other things, but have not found the solution.

Thanks in advance,

Jay

I don't understand why 3-way cc didn't do the trick; you ought to be able to pull those video levels down to black.

Use the reverse of the matte you generated, with a different blending mode. Or put the matte on a separate layer and key from that.
