Re: masking hair

Dont know if its proper to suggest special products...but I use Vertus Fluid Mask to be able to get individual fine hair cutouts with no halo's and minimal artifacting. I have used channels for years...but this software has a special blending brush that is able to work at the pixel level...and it doesnt need a special green or blue screen... although it does make things more challenging when you have complex hair next to a complex background obviously. Their website has video tutorials on the cutting techniques and a 30 day demo. I am able to see between individual strands of hair in the cutouts. It does cost money...but if you have enough volume or are doing any commercial applications...then the cost is very reasonable.

Re: masking hair

Thanks for the recommendation of Vertus Fluid Mask. I've heard others comment about it. I'll give it a try.

Thanks again.
