Digital Film Tools releases zMatte v3--a full featured blue and green screen keyerFor detailed product information, go to http://www.digitalfilmtools.com/zmatte/ (March 31, 2009)
zMatte is a full-featured keyer that is the result of our experience in creating countless 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 comprised of: Color Suppress for removing blue or green spill light; DeArtifact to clean up compression artifacts in DV and HD footage; Edge Composite to color correct, blur or mix only the edge of the key; Frame Averager for smoothing out film grain and video noise; Holdout Composite 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; Matte Repair to fix common matte problems; Matte Wrap for retaining the definition of the matte edges while creating a smooth blend of transparency starting at the edge of the matte changing to fully opaque moving inward; and Screen Smoother to smooth out unevenly lit blue and green screens.
Digital Film Tools brings together the unbeatable combination of superior software designers, motion picture visual effects veterans, video editors and photographers. Add three Emmy Awards and experience in creating visual effects for hundreds of feature films, commercials and television shows and you have a recipe for success.
