All project files are also included. This training tailored to busy professionals (and those who don’t read manuals). It is meant to get the viewer started and comfortable with the plug-in within just a couple of hours. The training does not cover every single feature of the plug-in but inspires you to look deeper into the tool (or the manual, if needed!)

As you may know, Green Screen Made Easy, 2nd Edition, which I co-authored with Jeremy Hanke, came out in October 2016. 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 some of my favorite keying and compositing tools for After Effects and other hosts.


Multiple Edge Matte Tutorial with Primatte Keyer and 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!
