Digital Film Tools releases zMatte 2.0, a full featured blue and green screen keyer for Apple Shake, Adobe After Effects and After Effects compatible programs, Apple's Final Cut Pro, Avid Editing Systems and Adobe Photoshop.
zMatte is a full-featured keyer that is the result of Digital Film Tools'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.
zMatte includes a complete set of keying plug-ins which include: Deartifact to clean up compression artifacts in DV and HD footage; Edge tools to color correct, blur or mix only the edge of the key; Holdout to matte the usually problematic smoke, fire and explosions; the zMatte Keyer to handle the heavy keying tasks; Light Wrap to bring background color into the foreground element; a Matte Generator used to key images not meant to be keyed; and Matte Repair to fix common matte problems.
Created for the rigorous demands of motion picture production by digital artists for digital artists, zMatte is available for download or purchase at: www.digitalfilmtools.com at the following prices: Apple Shake: $495; Avid, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Combustion, Digital Fusion - $395; Adobe Photoshop - $195; Upgrade pricing is available for existing customers.
