New: Hawaiki Keyer 5 Is Now Avaiable + Special Intro Pricing
Hawaiki Keyer 5, the sophisticated Green & Blue Screen Keyer, now comes with AI Tracking and a whole lot more. Get it now for only $99 with special introductory pricing, but only for a limited time.
The industry’s most sophisticated Green & Blue Screen Keyer now with AI tracking
Hawaiki Keyer 5 builds on the best-in-class keying tools of Hawaiki Keyer 4 and enables you to use them more efficiently with even more powerful and intelligent tools for isolating your foreground.
It’s easier than ever to maintain hair and other fine detail by creating secondary keys and dynamic garbage mattes with the new AI-powered face & object tracking and the new realtime edge tracking. And the new Crop tools allow you to exclude the edges of the screen and speed up the rendering of complex keys.
Refining your composite is faster and simpler with all the edge tools that were in a separate plug-in now integrated into Hawaiki Keyer. And we’ve expanded the compositing toolset with even more edge operations and the ability to resize and composite the background within the plug-in.
On top of this we’ve refined the UI and operation of the plug-in and optimized it for Apple silicon (M1 & M2) and HDR.
Compatibility: Final Cut Pro 10.6+, Motion 5.6+, Premiere Pro 14+, After Effects 17+
Please Note: Hawaiki Keyer requires Noise Industries FxFactory to run (Free Download).
What’s new in Hawaiki Keyer 5?
Hawaiki Keyer now provides automatic tracking of the edges of your foreground as well as centre tracking. Both modes work with the new AI Track.
AI Track – AI-powered tracking of faces and objects
- Face tracking is useful for creating trackable head mattes that allow you to pull a secondary key on the subject’s hair.
- Object tracking is an alternative to the standard Hawaiki Keyer tracking. It’s a good option when the screen doesn’t cover the entire shot, when a light or other fixture is in the shot or if the screen has a lot of tracking markers.
- AI Track works with both centre and edges tracking modes. Centre works best for face tracking if the subject’s distance to the camera doesn’t change. If the subject is moving away from or towards the camera you can use the Edges mode and the scale controls to create a head matte that automatically resizes.
Secondary matte and tracking controls have been moved into the Shape section and the size and position of the shape matte is now easier to set with two onscreen controls which replace the sliders used in HK4.
Quickly create a garbage matte and speed up rendering with complex keys. Crop doesn’t apply a matte at the end of the chain. It defines the pixels that are processed from the beginning of the chain, for both image and matte operations.
Image Processing Pipeline
Hawaiki Keyer 5 utilizes a new image processing pipeline that provides Metal GPU acceleration. It is built with FxFactory’s new node-based compositing engine FxCore and optimized for Apple silicon (M1 and M2) with better handling of HDR footage. AI Track makes uses of Apple’s Neural Engine when using computers with the M1 or M2.
All the processes available in the HK4 Edge Tools plug-in are now incorporated into the main Keyer plug-ins
The Edge Tools plug-in has been expanded and renamed Comp Tools and includes options for processing the matte (alpha channel) and image. Image processes include color correction, blur, pixelate, smoothing and despill. Matte processes: gain, clip, shrink-grow, blur, matte cleaner. You can now use an external matte and the Analysis view from Hawaiki Keyer is available.
