'lp_' is not really the name inside of Nuke, it's more for organizing on a server/computer harddrive

 

 

Update v1.4
- fixed issues with the bg preparation (didn't work as expected if input was already despilled or was applied with multiply)
- added a spread control for the original plate-colour bg preparation
- added knobChanged visbility to make the layout more intuitive (and fancy)

 Update v1.3
- fixed the mask input
- updated the preview image on Nukepedia

Update v1.2
- added a pull-down choice for the background preparation
- aside of simple darkening, you can choose from the original plate colour as well as a simple colour choice; so it gets even more convincing :)

Update v1.1
- added a gamma slider
- added a background preparation slider to darken the bg based on the keyed hair, can help a lot for looking a bit more convincing :)

 

This additive Keyer is meant for hair and other fine detail. For it to work, you need to hook up your shot as well as a cleanplate (generate your own with a coloursmear or use IBKcolor if you have none). You can apply it to a background directly, too.

The tool is designed to be simple and straight forward, so the controls should be self-explanatory; basically you choose the hair-style (bright or dark) and a screencolour, adjust the result with the given options as needed. A despill for the plates is already build in, but can be deactivated if the inputs are despilled already.

While this tool also works with dark hair (making it a multiplicative rather than an additive keyer), getting a matte ready (maybe using a constant for the colour) should be a preferred route :)

 

The tool works best with even greenscreens, as it will transfer any detail; including grain, noise and wrinkles. You can get great results especially with blonde hair; it's nearly effortless and gives decent results, check the (horribly keyed) examples below.

This tool is a Group, not a Gizmo; edit if needed. I didn't checked the older Nuke Versions, but I don't see why it shouldn't work in v6 or v7 at all.

You should check common tutorials on how to denoise, as this will help with your issue.

Also, writing "please" and not in all caps brings you a long way :)

Thank you but the mask connection does not work.

Hey there, you are absolutely right, sorry about that! As I added the background preparation I misjudged how I implemented mask-input. It's fixed now! :)

Best,
Lucas

Thanks for your hard work man! I will compare these to other options to see which works the best.
