Hawaiki Keyer releases a new plugin for Final Cut Pro

Keyer 3 New Feature Tutorial By Ko Maruyama
Hawaiki Keyer 3 is a simple chroma keyer for Final Cut and Apple Motion artists who want a simple solution for lifting their subjects from greenscreens.

The new keyer from Hawaiki includes several features that will be important to any editor/compositor, most notably features that will allow editors to control light wrap transfer modes.

View Modes:
  • New Swap option (with additional dropdown menu) for quick comparison of any two views; 
  • New views include RGB Max, Pre-Qualify, Luma Map, Edge Blend and Spill Map Overlay, as well as improved versions of Analysis and Spill Map.
  • Auto Target & Auto Edge:
  • New Auto Target control to adjust the target density of the Auto process; new Auto Edge option helps maintain lighter foreground detail.
  • Refined Screen Density Controls:
  • Knee controls for High & Low Density for greater accuracy and enhanced edge quality.
  • Pre-Qualify:
    • New Pre-Qualify section intelligently targets foreground and background RGB balance for very high levels of matte refinement.
  • Black and White Clip Knees:
  • New Black and White Clip knee controls allow for much more precise targeting of clip operations.
  • White Balance:
    • New White Balance section uses Hawaiki's state-of-the-art white balance technology (from AutoGrade) to allow you to white balance either the foreground image or the matte process or both, with the choice of balancing from a white (grey value) pick or a skin tone pick.
  • Edge:
    • Edge - revamped Edge processing: Edge Transparency now uses the main edge matte, as does the new Edge Blur, so both can be qualified with a gradient. Edge Blend algorithm has been updated to produce a smoother blend.
  • Denoise:
    • Improved Denoise options with Low, Medium and High settings.
  • Despill:
    • New Auto Luminance and Auto Saturation options. 
  • Light Wrap:
    • Enhanced Light Wrap module with a choice of blend modes.
