With just 3 clicks and a couple of sliders we will get the despill we need and also we can avoid hard lines in edges. Easy and fast.

To create this tool, I have combined two very useful techniques that I have learned from what I consider my mentors: Pedro Andrade and Alex Hanneman.

Thanks to both for contributing to the community with free content and with more advanced paid courses.


How to make more effective DESPILL in compositing inside NUKE -


NK505 - Advanced Keying, Despill, and Plate Integration -




 ALL pickers must be used by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Click and also Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Click to pick an area (pick an area is very useful, especially for the Magic picker)


Screen Colour

Chroma color


Color: Color desired

Input: Background, Edge_Extend or any RGB input we want to use

Color + Input: It is a dissolve between the previous two


Magic: Color we want to protect

Magic_Input: Protects an RGB input instead of a single color. In simple and low-movement shots it could work by connecting a previous despill together with a pxf_distort or extend.

Luma Restore: Returns the original luma

Force Luma: In some cases, the BG will have a higher luminance than what we can see in the plate. This knob will allow us to force that luminance beyond the original regardless of the Luma Restore.
