Red Giant, makers of software tools for filmmakers, editors, VFX artists and motion designers, released Primatte Keyer 5.1, an update that adds support for Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) and Motion. Using the same keying technology from blockbuster hits such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Spider-Man, Primatte Keyer lets users easily remove a blue or greenscreen background, often with the touch of a button.
“Over the last year we’ve heard, non-stop, from editors that they need chroma keying technology in their NLEs,” said Aharon Rabinowitz, Red Giant’s head of marketing. “Many of them have expressed frustration, both with needing to leave their editor to do even basic compositing and with the loss of time that comes with it. We’re really excited to help editors solve these challenges.”
Primatte Keyer 5.1 takes the powerful chroma keying tools that have, up until now, only been available to Adobe After Effects users and puts them into the hands of editors. Primatte Keyer now supports After Effects, Premiere Pro, FCP X and Motion, giving all users of these host apps direct access to tools for fast automatic keying, digital greenscreen relighting, as well as compositing and cleanup tools.
