Arrow What Greenscreen plug-in for Photoshop?

Is there anyone who has a tip of a great or the greatest plug-in for Photoshop or program to use when keying out backgrounds or green/blue-screen?
I have been looking at a lot and there are mostly only amateur and familiy programs out there... Not really happy with any of them..


Any tips?

Well You can use select color in photoshop. Just double click the background layer to make it a floating layer and then select the greenscreen using select/color range and hit the delete key.

Re: What Greenscreen plug-in for Photoshop?

Thank you for your input! I have used that several times, but i end up having difficulties in the supptle areas..

Like for instance hair and see through materials or glass, water etc.

I have seen amazing results done through editing programs for films such as FinalCut, but havent yet found a program that works well for stills.

I am currently looking at Vertus Fluid Mask... so far it looks like it has much to offer..

Have tried the primatte you refer to and also the greenscreen wizard.
The Greenscreen wizard really has not that many options and are for the ones that do not need a high quality cutout it seems.

The primatte looks good and works in photoshop, but i am having problems with getting it to work well with photoshop. It does not have the quickmanouverlable buttons as ps and I have problems with the edges of the cut out.
The colour selction in photoshop still works best i think. I'll try more, but I am not impressed with it. Maybe it is just me and my bad handling of the program.
Have you tried the Vertus Fluid mask?

While Fluid Mask is a more general masking plugin, Primatte is especially made for bluescreen/greenscreen images... it helps getting rid of color spill at the edges of objects and works good with transparent or semi-transparent stuff...

I can't tell you much more because I tried these plugins once, but I actually don't use them...
Maybe try some of these tutorials for Primatte:

I just don't have that many pictures to cut out, but if I had, I would probably use a bluescreen and Primatte...

You can find a list of the current extraction options for Photoshop here (under the "Selections/Masking" category).

Please note that Topaz released version 2 of ReMask yesterday.
