I'm working with some blue screen footage featuring football players. In one clip, the player crosses his arms, but his blue bracelet is keyed out after applying a simple Keylight (1.2). I can't seem to figure out how to bring the blue bracelet back. I've rotoscoped a mask around it already, but I don't know how to make the footage visible again. I feel like the answer should be simple, but I'm just not seeing it. Any help?

Often with keys, you will work with multiple keys and layers. In your case, if you have rotoscoped the bracelet, make it a seperate layer on top of the keyed footage. The bracelet layer should not have any keying on it.
