It sounds to me that you need better people who know how to key, and can do it better than your average joe. I can key, using AE and FC but when people who do only that have done it for jobs Ive had, big difference...
Great keying, depends on precise, lighting, exposure, shooting. Yes the best color rendition, 4:2:2, or 4:4:4 even better. But aside from the HVX, xdcams, HDcams, beta, varis etc..sonys, panasonic, Red etc... it all boils down to returning to the basics. Precise lighting, accurate exposures, and right shooting.

The DVCPRO HD format, does very well, yes the bigger chips etc, will perform better. So Sony HDcams, and Panasonic HD, and the venerable Varis can do better. But you will spend 80-100k between the camera's lenses, not to mention decks etc.. Unless of course you rent. Just my thought, I dont know everything definately, but do know, that there is no substitute for the basics..
