Hey guys. I've been wondering out to blur out the backgrounds in my green screen shots without it looking super fake. It seems to me that the trick would be somehow softening or blurring the edges of my alpha channel but I can't figure out exactly how.

Any ideas?

If that youtube link in your post is the video in question, you can ameliorate the hard edges on the subjects by using Light Wrap.

There is a third-party plugin that can do it, and there's also a classic way to do it in AE. It was a tutorial here on the COW, going all the way back to version 4.1, I think.
