Shooting & Compositing Background Driving Plates November 13 2015
Check out this very informative and fun "how to" from VideoCopilot's own, Andrew Kramer. It's a great introduction to shooting and then compositing green screen driving shots using background driving plates.
We especially like how he discusses using "soft keys" to keep the window reflections and thus making the shots feel much more realistic. All using Keylight in After Effects.
We offer a nice selection of affordable background driving plates in our 2nd Unit™ PLATES collection. Browse and shop for them here to use in your next project.

Keying with Red Giant's Primatte Keyer August 23 2014
Red Giant's Primatte Keyer is one of our favorite keyers and the guys at Film Riot like it too. Here they do a good job (quickly) covering its functions. However, most of this can be done with Keylight too, which is built into After Effects.

Tips for Better Green Screen Keying August 23 2014
Compositing VFX shots from our 2nd Unit™ footage collection doesn't have to be hard, as a matter of fact with a few of these tips from Film Riot it can be pretty easy! Note, that we do offer the footage in both RED RAW and ProRes4444 varieties, and we personally prefer to work with the original RAW 4K or 5K files, however, the 2K ProRes files will key very well, too.
