Noise Industries, developer of visual effects
tools for the postproduction and broadcast
markets, announced that new development partner,
PHYX Inc., has released PHYX Keyer for the
FxFactory platform.

PHYX Keyer is a brand new collection of keying
plug-ins designed to work inside Adobe After
Effects CS3/CS4, Apple Final Cut Pro, Apple
Motion and Apple Final Cut Express applications.
PHYX Keyer offers five professional-quality
plug-ins that allow artists to create mattes,
extract precise keys, neutralize spill, and
correct unevenly lit blue and green screens.

PHYX Keyer includes five plug-ins that help
create and refine keys using the most efficient
algorithms for a variety of shooting conditions.
According to Justin Bendo, president and CEO,
PHYX, highlights include:

° Despill, which neutralizes excess green and
blue spill without leftover magenta or yellow
fringe artifacts;

° DiffKeyer, which creates a matte, based on the
difference between two images, without the need
to utilize a green or blue screen;

° Keyer, which contains three keying engines, YUV
Difference, 3D Keyer, and Channel Keyer, and
provides optimized controls to extract precise
keys. It also includes a powerful deartifactor,
which reconstructs the chroma channels to restore
details lost to chroma sub sampling;

° LightWrap, which creates a light source from a
background image and wraps the light around the
foreground image to blend them together in a

° ScreenCorrector, which compares a clean plate
and a solid color, and creates a perfect green or
blue screen by correcting unevenly lit screens,
removing tracking markers and more.
