Have you ever noticed that the lighting on greenscreen talent doesn't match the lighting of the background ? The revised CompositeMatcher color-matches the foreground to the background more accurately than before, blending the images together for absolute realism. Get matched with CompositeMatcher.
Green spill can wreck any key. In fact, spill is one of the worst artifacts of the keying process, and one which most commercial keying plugins are not able to accurately handle. The revised Despill plugin completely neutralizes spill, removing the 'green halo of death' that destroys many green screen shots without color-shifting skin tones.
The photo above shows the original image, and the image processed only with Despill. Notice how the areas of excess green are neutralized. Get your spill under control with Despill.
Have you ever wanted to key without a green screen ? DiffKeyer keys the difference between two shots. So if you shoot a background, then an actor in front of that same foreground, you can key-out the actor like magic. No green screen needed. Make keying simple with DiffKeyer.
Have you ever noticed jagged or 'extra' edges around keyed talent ? Edges gives you a flexible toolset to smooth jagged edges, and further refine them, giving more natural realistic keys. Live on the edge with Edges.

PHYX Keyer 4.0 requires FxFactory 4.
FxFactory requires ATI, NVIDIA or Intel HD graphics.
Apple OS X 10.7 or 10.8.
Apple Final Cut Pro (7 or X), Apple Motion (4 or 5), Adobe After Effects (CS 5, CS5.5, or CS6), Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6).
"The million-dollar question is whether PHYX Keyer is worth the investment; after all, you get keying algorithms for free with Final Cut Pro, Motion, and even After Effects. The answer is that none of these offer the flexibility of having three different methods and two different systems all wrapped into one system for a low price tag. In fact, none of the other keying systems that you can buy as separate applications, offer what PHYX offers at a price of approx. 150.00 Euros."

"I love what PHYX has done for pulling the perfect chroma key. Keyer 2.0 is an amazing plugin for FxFactory that will allow you to pull the perfect key in Final Cut Pro, Motion, After Effects or Final Cut Express.
If I had PHYX Keyer 2.0, 4 years ago my job would’ve been so much easier. Instead I rendered overnight and sometimes had to make a correction that would send me back to re-render. "

"Phyx Keyer is a useful suite of tools. Perhaps more importantly, it’s dead easy to use. It doesn’t make creating a chroma key into a one-click operation, but it makes the process simple. "

"PHYX Keyer serves an emerging market well: It's a low-priced keying solution that does most of the heavy lifting for you. In the past, keying software offered a dizzying array of parameters and options to tweak. This level of control came in handy for laborious adjusting, but sometimes programs offered little in the way of automatic options. PHYX Keyer lets you combine two or three of its included plug-ins and produces professional results with little effort. "

" love the ability to pull great mattes with PHYX in Final Cut, so that quick projects can stay within the program and aren't sliding back and forth between that and After Effects so much. With many projects speed is key, and PHYX Keyer definitely helps you accomplish quality results with less time."

"Instead of spending hours, endlessly tweaking sliders to get exactly the optimum setting for my key, PHYX seemed to be able to extract just as good a key in two minutes with two controls. PHYX Keyer is a great keyer package at a fantastic price."
Definition Magazine (see full review)
"All in all, Phyx Keyer is a great bargain and a very well-developed set of useful and easy-to-use filters that are effective and fast."
