Red Giant Software Announces Primatte Keyer 4

Publish date:

New version now plugs into Final Cut Pro and Motion as well as After Effects and Avid systems

San Francisco, CA, March 17, 2008

– Red Giant Software is pleased to announce Primatte Keyer 4, which brings new levels of power and speed to After Effects, Avid and, for the first time, Final Cut Pro and Motion. Primatte Keyer 4 can create an almost-perfect key with just one mouse-click, overcoming keying challenges such as uneven lighting, compression artifacts, subtle shadows, and edge light contamination. Best of all, Primatte Keyer 4 now works right from the timeline. Primatte Keyer works on hard to key DV and HDV material and the proven technology has been used on many big budget Hollywood productions such as Superman, The Aviator, X-Men, and Spiderman 2. This has made Primatte Keyer a favorite tool with filmmakers and production companies who want the same results but have smaller budgets.


Auto Setup

Users get the power of Primatte’s amazing quality, but with just one mouse-click. The new Auto Setup analyzes the background color and creates the key automatically.

Finish right in your editor—any editor

Final Cut Pro users can now create mattes right on the timeline without leaving their editing application. In addition, the Avid version now offers feature parity with After Effects and Final Cut Pro. Primatte Keyer 4 supports 32-bit processing (After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Motion) as well as 16-bit processing (Avid).

Advanced Compositing Controls

Exceptional light wrapping and color matching features create keys that guarantee images will look like they've always belonged on the background of your choice. For more detailed product information, visit:
