zMatte is a full-featured keyer that is the result of our experience in creating hundreds of successful blue and green screen composites. Using proprietary matte extraction techniques, zMatte quickly and simply creates mattes with minimal parameters even if you are dealing with fine hair detail, smoke, or reflections. It is easy to use, yet provides the needed tools when faced with good, bad, or ugly shots — tools such as multiple matte creation, automatic spill suppression, sophisticated matte and edge manipulation, and color correction.
So, how does zMatte work? You tell it the type of color screen you are using and with a quick drag of the background and foreground sliders, you have a matte. If it looks good, you’re done. If not, there are tools to make it look right starting with DeArtifact controls, matte manipulators and spill suppression. DeArtifacting cleans up compression artifacts in DV and HD footage while blue or green spill can be removed separately from the foreground or its edge. For those really nasty blue and green screens, multiple mattes can be pulled and combined within zMatte and treated with Blur, Shrink and Wrap functions. Once the key is pulled, the foreground can be color matched to the background. You can then use Light Wrap to blend the foreground into the background by making the color of the background wrap into the foreground edges without completely losing the edge. To finish it off, there are tools to color correct, blur or mix only the edge of the key.
Simple matte extraction, de-artifacting, isolated color suppression, matte treatment, sophisticated color correction, light wrapping and edge tools are all you’ll need to make that perfect key.
zMatte includes the following filters to handle keying, matte generation and compositing: Color Suppress, DeArtifact, Edge Composite, Frame Averager, Holdout Composite, Keyer, Light Wrap, Matte Generator, Matte Repair, Matte Wrap and Screen Smoother.
