    Default Problems luma-keying blood and gunshot effects with pinnacle studio

    Hey, everybody. I have downloaded several gunshot and blood effects from www.detonationfilms.com, (awesome site)

    i unzipped the files and converted them to .avi format, and im having trouble getting them to look good. They come with a solid white background and im having trouble keying that out and still getting a satisfactory blood spatter.

    any help?

    thanks,
    Michael

    I just tried chroma keying out hte white in vegas and it worked fine for me.

    It worked less well using them in mask mode as suggested on the site.

    I can chroma key out the white pretty well, but i just loose alot of deepness and the effect comes out 2D and slightly pixelated.

    I used the beheading blood shot today and it looks to have worked ok. I used chroma key on the white.

    Lols - I am eccentric for sure.

    What are you using to key? What app? I thought all s ware keyers were much the same - perhaps not..
