In a green screen shoot on a flying kung fu master, how are the cables removed in post? God bless.

They are often 'painted' out frame by frame using the paint tool.

Also make sure that you are using a good quality monitor to see the work with a high contrast ratio.

Hope that helps a bit.

I addition to the Mr. Hetherington mentions there is also a tool included in After Effects called CC Wire Removal, it's designed to do just that.

Google "wire fu" for more information on the technique in general.
