I'm working on this animation and I have a problem: the chroma is perfect but when I apply Keylight I get these white shadows and edges. The edges disappear when I disable unpremultiply result, but I don't know what to do with the shadow. I tried different options and I'am not getting good results. I'm trying to avoid masks, but if I don't have another options I'll do it :P

Anyone can help?

Thanks a lot!!!

I'm guessing that this was shot with auto-sharpen/auto-contrast features turned on in the camera. These features must be left off in the camera, or else you'll get terrible ringing around objects and will have a devil of a time compositing with the footage.

Key the shadows separately. If the issue persists, look into using blending modes or Fill and adjust opacity etc to taste.
