I have 14 moving objects all shot against the same green screen and from the exact same angle but at different times.

I want to combine them into the same single shot.

I both rotoscoped and keylit each layer, but it's an absolute mess.

What is the best way to get this to work? Can I somehow implement a single key for the group?

You can precomp the individual keyed layers. Then you only have one layer to deal with in the main comp.

Thanks, Dave. I precomped each layer which helped some, but I continued to have a lot of noise and overlapping issues.

First attempt...

Turns out I needed to render out garbage mattes for each of the 14 layers and then import them into the same composition. It fixed the noise and overlapping issues. Cleaner result...

Yup, depending on the lighting conditions for the chroma key, garbage mattes can be a lifesaver.
