the obvious downside of any automatic keying is the loss of control of the image and the loss of the ability to fine tune the look. if you don’t feel comfortable with the results of the automatic keying, you can start with a different look and then refine it in the hawaiki keyer. this of course also requires the skillful and persistent use of the inspector panel in the final step.
the functionality of the hawaiki keyer is not limited to keying. there is a colour wheel in the inspector panel and the hue/saturation tool (accessible via the same button) that can be used to adjust the colours in the image.
when it comes to colour correction, the hawaiki keyer is a comprehensive solution. for a quick and easy look on how the image looks and what the settings are, you can use the preview app. for more thorough grading, you can use the inspector panel and the keyers functionality.
the user interface is easy to use. however, you can also easily use the inspector panel for adjustment to your taste. for example, you can choose the best looking settings and then use these in the second keyer.
a few months ago i was asked by a small company to do a 3d rendering of an industrial machine. i used fcpx for the 3d part and keylight for the keying. i was very impressed with the quality of the key and the detail i was able to pull out of the machine. with all the help i needed from the ripple crew i was able to create a little reel that gives a really good idea of the quality of the key. the only problem was that it wasn’t quite a true reflection of the quality of the key. keylight 4 was not quite up to the task of showing the color and texture of the machine and the final result was too noisy. hawaiki keyer 5 fixed that problem and gave me the keying i was looking for. thanks again to mark and steve for making such a great product.
this plug-in enables users to create, edit, and adjust the settings of their key in the same plug-in, and its been tried and tested by the creative community for years. if you want to create a perfect key, hawaiki keyer is the way to go. available from fxfactory, hawaiki keyer has the power to make your green screen key more realistic and more perfect than anything else available. keying suite, which includes primatte keyer, key correct, and warps is $199.00. the keying suite includes two sets of plug-ins: keying suite for the primatte keyer and keying suite for key correct. keying suite for the primatte keyer contains the primatte keyer and warps, and keying suite for key correct includes key correct and warps. the keying suite for the primatte keyer is $129. the keying suite for key correct is $149. once downloaded you will receive the keying suite as one unified installer which can be installed on one computer and then used from anywhere. the interface is clean, easy to use and the preset system is logical and easy to learn. you can do things like add a matte to the keyer and adjust the density, but you cant just go crazy and use the keyer the way i want to. for example, you have to put a matte on the whole key and you cant move them around. on the other hand, you can use the edge tools and make the background more selective. you can add a matte that just covers the foreground, or a matte that only covers the edges. the edge tools allow you to use the keyer to create a matte around the edges of the image and also to select the edges of the screen. you can choose to render with the edges included or excluded and the final result can look a lot cleaner if the edges are included. you can even make a background matte out of the edges of the screen or use it to mask out the edges of the foreground. this is a huge benefit over simply adding the background manually and then masking out the foreground. 5ec8ef588b
