Adobe purchased Serious Ma


Adobe purchased Serious Magic a few years ago and got their product Ultra, which was a great keying program. I believe they have incorporated that technology into Premiere Pro (CS 5 or later).

That said, I have done some decent chromakeying in Sony Vegas and as Dave already said, they color you use to key is not the issue – They use green or blue since it is easier to NOT have those colors in what you’re recording that you want to remain. I have successfully keyed off black, white, grey, yellow and beige as well as blue & green.

As for which color to purchase, I don’t know how large a background you need but there are smaller fold up versions (7′ x 5′) that have both blue & green (like this – – there are plenty out there – do a search)
