Dave's being sarcastic. Rotoscoping, even with the Rotobrush, is tedious and slow, especially compared to Keylight, or Ultra Key in Premiere. That being said, you might want to have a look at Red Giant's Unmult effect. It's made for keying out black specifically. But still, setting up a good green screen shoot is probably the way to go. I addition to the usual caveats that you'll find for that type of shoot, here are a couple that may help immensely -

- Place your subject as far from the green screen as is possible to help eliminate spill onto their hair and shoulders.

- Filter the hairlight/backlight with a 'minus green' gel which is a very light pink hue. This can help to counteract any edge spill that may occur.

- Do not overlight the green screen.

- Use a smartphone app such as Green Screener to check the evenness of the lighting on the green screen.
