The Best User Experience and the Best Results
Primatte Keyer’s new user interface makes it easy to select your background and foreground, and to separate them out for a great key. Primatte’s cleanup tools help make it look solid without much additional effort.
Primatte Keyer has always made the keying process faster by just being more intuitive and easier to use than any other keying tool out there. Now, with GPU optimization, you’ll get even more speed, with previews and renders up to 3x faster than in previous versions.
VFX Primatte Keyer has been designed to include lots of features to make chroma keying simple and fast.
User Interface (New)
Primatte Keyer 6’s new, streamlined user interface makes it even easier to modify your key than previous versions.
Core Matte (New)
Sometimes you have to fight a battle between keeping most of your subject opaque while also maintaining soft or partially transparent edges. Utilizing the luminance in your foreground, Primatte Keyer’s Core Matte tool can keep the inside of your key solid, while still preserving fine semi-transparent details on the edges.
Often your chroma background will reflect some of its color back on to your foreground elements, leaving unwanted color on your subject. Primate Keyer’s Spill Killer tools remove any of the stubborn green and blue spill not removed in a key.

Ease of Use
Incredibly easy to use. The organized interface, straightforward approach, and simple practical documentation make this just about the easiest keying software in its class.
Depth of Options
Best depth of options I’ve seen. Both in terms of controlling the key with difficult footage and managing complex circumstances like transparent objects (glass) and back-lighting, Primatte Keyer 4 runs deep. I’m sure I’ll be discovering new techniques and features for a long time.
Fast renders. No hangs or program crashes during any of my tests. The ease-of-use features make Primatte Keyer 4 work fast when you need it to, and dive deep when you need it to.
Incredible value. Whether it’s speed, sophistication, ease of use, or quality of results – Primatte Keyer 4 has it hands-down over the other keying software I’ve used.
I think if you look back over the sample images in this article, you’ll have a sense of what Primatte Keyer 4 can do. As or me, Primatte Keyer 4 is my new favorite software.
Check out these great tutorials from Red Giant. Get started with Universe and VFX Reflections, learn "cheap tricks" for re-creating cool Frozen II and Game of Thrones effects and even learn how to create a Star Wars style Force push.
As you may know, I have a book coming out in October 2016 called Green Screen Made Easy, 2nd Edition. In the book, I go over the keyers, but because it’s in print, I’m limited to how much space I have. In this series, I’m going IN DEPTH on three of my favorite keying and compositing tools for After Effects and other hosts. I’ve talked a lot about keying tools in the book, on the Toolfarm website, and at user group events. The first article will look at Red Giant Keying Suite, which includes Primatte Keyer and it’s wonderful companion tool, Key Correct.
This little tutorial was unscripted but goes over a lot of the finer points of using edge mattes, core mattes, garbage mattes and so on. I'm putting this at the top of the article so you won't miss it!
In this series, I'm going to give some in-depth information on three of my favorite keying tools that work with After Effects, Premiere Pro, and other tools. The first in the series covers Red Giant's Keying Suite, which includes Primatte Keyer, Key Correct Pro, and Warp.
