After effects keying key light and primatte
on Mar 16, 2015 at 12:43:28 am

Hi,

I have a virtual environment with 15-20 actors individually green screened and placed into the set for animation.

15-20 primate instances is killing interactivity. Moving things around 3D space is just not happening. Keylight is many times faster but some of the keys are a little inconstant and I really like the edge blur.

Ive worked on a project in cinema 4D where I set primate to matte view and exported the matt as a gray scale image and added it to the alpha channel in the material editor.

Is there a fast way to kind of bake the layer in after effects so I no longer need to use primate when its don't its job but without having to render down the file as a matt/mask and then import it again?

I think especially for keying, ones its keyed, I really don't need the keyer to be processing, just want to bake its results.

Thanks for any help !

If you pre-compose the layer with the key effect, moving all attributes into the new composition, you can either pre-render [link] or proxy [link] the precomp.

Personally, I find full-resolution, high-quality proxies to be the superior solution since changes can be more easily managed; just make sure to adjust your render settings so that Proxy Use is set to "Current Settings" when you render.
