The classic greenscreen touchup tool

Composite Wizard is the classic After Effects compositing package that professional artists know and love. This inexpensive set of 20 filters offers easy solutions for fixing tattered edges, poor matte extractions, improper focal depth cues, and unbalanced color schemes.


After the greenscreen is keyed, Composite Wizard uses time-tested tools to seamlessly integrate your subject and background layers.

What's New

  • Now available as part of Effects Suite
  • Ideal for use on legacy projects that depend on Composite Wizard filters

Reasons To Buy

  • Composite Wizard is the simplest complement for your keying solutions.
  • When you’re in a hurry, you turn to time-tested tools. Composite Wizard’s classic filters work just the way you remember, and there’s no learning curve.
  • Use Primatte Keyer to remove the greenscreen background, then apply Composite Wizard to make your composite look perfect.
  • Generate composites that make your animations and scenes look more organic and photo-realistic.

Edge control for believable composites

composite wizardFive powerful plug-ins will soften and control the edges of your layer, making the composite look organic and your subject look fully integrated with the rest of the scene. Edge Blurs and Matte Feathers truly solve most compositing problems! You can even use Deluxe Edge Finder to generate an accurate border for glows and halos.


Remove unwanted artifacts & elements

composite wizardSeven smart plug-ins correct and integrate your matte into a world-class composite. Eliminate light spills with Spill Killer or smooth uneven screen colors with Smooth Screen. Use Miracle Alpha Cleaner to zap film grain and holes; remove unwanted objects (like wires and rigs) with Wire/Rig Zapper; and reduce video and grain noise with Denoiser.


Advanced elements for a professional key

composite wizard

Seven sophisticated plug-ins make the difference between a good composite and a truly professional image. Light Wrap wraps soft light between the background and foreground layers, while Composite Color Matcher performs consistent color matching between layers. For realistic results, apply inter-layer blurring with Super Compound Blur, or alpha channel clipping with Deluxe Edge Finder.

Composite Color Matcher

Automatically adjust a clip's colors to match the composite environment by blending its tonal and exposure ranges — all with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Deluxe Edge Finder

Create a precise border along a layer's alpha channel. When used as a control layer, this border will allow you to control the exposure, color balance, sharpness, and transparency of the composite's edge.


Applies an averaging function across pixels from a sequence of frames, effectively reducing or eliminating film and video noise. Useful in cleaning up dark areas of images that pick up "chatter" from film emulsion or video camera sensors.

Edge Blur

Correct tattered edges and generate graphics that make animations and text look more organic and photorealistic. Blend and integrate multiple images easily with Composite Wizard’s Super Blur algorithm.

Light Wrap

Solves one of the trickiest challenges of compositing: creating the illusion that light from the background layer is being reflected onto the foreground layer, as if they were photographed in the same environment.

Matte Feather

Create a gradual change (feathering) from opaque to transparent at the edge of a layer's alpha. Correct dirty or tattered layer edges, or use to soften a hard edge from a CG object, making it fit into an organic scene.

Matte Feather Sharp

Feather and blur the edge of a layer with hard geometric and compound lines without losing its geometric shape. Its algorithms are specifically designed to maintain hard edges while feathering them.

Miracle Alpha Cleaner

Zap grain, fill holes, and fix other problem key areas in your matte that would otherwise require separate manual touch-ups. Miracle Alpha applies a cleanup pass to your alpha, identifying dirt and other artifacts based on a combination of their size, alpha level, and proximity to the principal element.


Improve your compositing workflow by allowing multiple matte creation effects to be combined into one matte. Pull a key and pass the resulting matte to a series of image processing functions including levels, blurs, and median filter passes. Then use Re-Matter to composite the resulting alpha into the original image - all in one effect stack.

Smooth Screen

Apply a "smoothing" effect over your bluescreen or greenscreen to reduce lighting and surface variances. Smooth Screen compares pixels to the target keying color, and corrects them to smooth out the blue or green screen before keying.

Spill Killer

Eliminate blue or green spill on the fringe of your composite elements, even those with fine detail or motion blur. Neutralize the blue or green contaminated pixels without harming the underlying color and eliminate the traces of a visual effects shot.

Super Blur

Experience the quality associated with a Gaussian blur filter, at up to five times the speed. Now use blurs whenever you want, without the performance hit.

Super Compound Blur

Extends the power of Super Blur to allow the blur intensity to be set by a control layer, such as a layer’s luminance or individual R, G, B, A channel. When used with a control layer created with Deluxe Edge Finder, realistic composites with subtle edge integration can be synthesized.

Super Rack Focus

Brings Z-buffer control to the Super Blur algorithm, allowing the creation of realistic depth-of-field simulation when a Z- buffer or "depth map" is available. Depth Maps created in a 3D application can determine the distance from the camera to different points within a clip. Super Rack Focus can then reference this depth map to progressively blur an image as it recedes in space away from the viewer. By animating the virtual camera settings within Super Rack Focus, the feel of a camera operator changing focus as a scene progresses can be created with startling realism.

Wire/Rig Zapper

Eliminate wires and unwanted objects from a scene by either cloning or stitching pixels together from the surrounding areas. Zap stage rigging from a blue or green screen shot, eliminating unwanted objects prior to keying. Synthesize replacement pixels over film scratches or video dropouts.

Zone HLS

Take control of your image's Hue, Saturation and Lightness color components, based on tonal range such as highlights, mid-tones, or shadow areas. Return image colors to the desired level after multiple filter passes.
