I have been working on a project recently the involved several Green Screen shots. In the past I have always used Adobe After Effects for all my keying needs. The Keylight plug-in in After Effects is very powerful keyer with great results but it does require skill and knowledge to get desired results. It also requires that you export your footage out of the editing program and import into After Effects and then when you are done you need to export out of After Effects and back into your editor. This is very time consuming and creates extra files on your hard drive that you will need to delete later to save space. Well, Avid Media Composer has one of the most amazing Keying systems I have seen to date, the SpectraMatte.

Not only is it built right into the editor, so there is no exporting and importing, but it is so easy to use and you can watch your keyed out material in real time; it just seems to good to be true. All it requires is that you select the color you want to key out and bam its 95% done. The only other settings that you may need to deal with are the inner and outer softeness, other than that I have not had to use any other setting.
