Yes, yes, I have to give credit where credit is due. Aharon Rabinowitz back in, I think 2006, had a tutorial that makes your keying duties MUCH easier… it was entitled Super-Tight Junk Mattes. I have to admit, it works really well, but like almost any other task in After Effects, there was another way to do it. I was talking to Maltaannon a few months back and he had told me about his technique that he uses on this, and I have been using it ever since. Not only is there fewer steps, but it also takes a lot less time. I asked him if he wouldn\’t mind me making a tutorial on it, since we all know how extensive his tutorials can get, and he told me to go for it, and here is the result… Super Tight Junk Mattes v2.0!

Nice post Topher.
I wanted to point out that there was a Video Copilot tutorial that uses a very similar method but instead of using Color Range he used Color Key. Set the tolerance to about 29 or so. He then grabbed each shade of green and then it was the same process with the simple choker & keylight.
Always nice to learn another method though.
