I am trying to become more "advanced" at compositing, and here is an issue I would like to learn how to solve:
I just pulled a key and the dark areas in th man's hair seem to have a lot of "noise" and don't seem to blend well with the background. Any suggestions on how to eliminate this and just get a nice, solid dark brown color?
I agree with Angelo that a screenshot would be very helpful in this instance. In case this isn't about grain, but about a rough (or shaky) edge around the hair, then here are some thoughts:
- Do a separate key for the hair. This allows you to mess with some settings that wouldn't work as well for the rest of the body but is ideal for something where there are a lot of fine lines.
- Sometimes you need to make a key to generate the alpha matte, and then you do a second "key" to color the image (remove the green, etc). Then you combine these. This is a process I often undertake when dealing with a more detailed key and/or varied edge detail.
