How do you edit green screen footage?
Adobe Premiere Pro has a solid set of tools to edit green screen footage with. You will find them in the Effects tab, under Video Effects, and Keying. There is a basic Color Key and the Ultra Key. Both work in a similar way, but the Ultra Key is what I prefer to use.
Steps to using the Ultra Key:-
1. Add green screen footage to your sequence.
2. Drop the Ultra Key effect onto your clip.
3. Go to the effects control tab.
4. Use the eyedropper to select the green color on your video frame (click somewhere near your subject). You may have to try this a few times to get the best key.
5. Use the Setting option to choose how aggressive the effect works.
6. Play with the numbers under Matte Generation until all the ‘noise’ is gone. Usually your green screen backdrop isn’t perfect. So shadows and highlights won’t be ‘keyed out’ until you make adjustments with the Matte Generation.
7. Use the Matte Cleanup options to affect the edges of your objects.Choke will shrink the edges, while Soften will make the edges more fuzzy.
8. Use Spill Suppression to adjust the edge colors of your subject. Sometimes when shooting in front a green screen, a green reflection will make your subject appear slightly tinted green. Spill Suppression can fix this problem.
