Matte and Keying Plug-Ins

If you have the Standard version of After Effects, your blue-screen keying choices are pretty limited. You can manage to get a decent outline of your subjects, but forget about fine details such as hair, transparency, or shadows. The Professional Bundle version of After Effects 7 ships with a very powerful professional chroma keying plug-in called Keylight. Other professional keying plug-ins, as well as specialized plug-ins specifically for DV, have been available from third-party developers for several years.
