I have RAW 2k footage shot with Black Magic XXX against
a green screen background.

One of the clips talents is old (speckled skin), has a checkered shirt and
sort of textured blue jeans. My mission is to key out
the talent without ending up with any:

- flickering
- crawling/flickering pixels in major areas (i.e. jeans or old man's speckled skin)
- green screen spill on the grey hair
- crawling edges around shirt or hair

I have walked through a lot of tutorials involving Keylight, Primatte Keyer and
have tried a lot of tweaking of every available setting presented in those plugins.

I still don't get acceptable results and I really need further tips on how to
produce a decent looking key.

Please help!

No matter how good the camera or codec, the lighting can make or break a good key. Can you get a screen shot of the un-keyed footage to show us what you're up against?
