I've been having decent results with the keylight 1.2 and spill suppressor that come with after effects, but in some of the shots, the green screen refracts light a little too much onto some of the glossy or white objects, meaning that the more I reduce the white clipping, the more green appears, and raising the levels of black/screen gain cuts into objects (like reflective spears and such).
The spill suppressor can sometimes result in a rather conspicuous outline of the object, so I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for AE keying plugins.

Keylight does a fine job of keying and handles detail and translucency very well, Primatte has however saved me on a couple of occasions when I have been given particularly badly lit shots and tricky spill/reflection. I have used the two in combination on a job where I had to key a dancer with a big feather head piece and silver shoes. Keylight did a great job with the feathers, but was struggling with reflections in the shoes.
I find that Primatte isn't quite as good with hair and such. It is also a bit more fiddly to finesse the matte in Primatte. Primatte does, however, have quite a good spill suppressor in my opinion. It can suppress green spill without introducing a major magenta bias like some spill killers.
