PHYX Keyer Feature Highlights

PHYX Keyer includes five plug-ins that help create and refine keys using the most efficient algorithms for a variety of shooting conditions. Highlights include:

Despill: Effectively neutralizes excess green and blue spill without leftover magenta or yellow fringe artifacts

DiffKeyer: Creates a matte, based on the difference between two images, without the need to utilize a green or blue screen

Keyer: Contains three keying engines, YUV Difference, 3D Keyer, and Channel Keyer, and provides powerful optimized controls to extract precise keys in seconds. Also includes a powerful deartifactor, which reconstructs the chroma channels to restore details lost to chroma sub sampling

LightWrap: Creates a light source from a background image and wraps the light around the foreground image to seamlessly blend them together in a composite

ScreenCorrector: Compares a clean plate and a solid color, and creates a perfect green or blue screen by correcting unevenly lit screens, removing tracking markers and more

PHYX Keyer is available for $199 (USD) via the Noise Industries website. A trial version is also included with the FxFactory 2.1.2 installer.
