Combining Multiple Delta Keyer Nodes (Fusion/Resolve)

Recommended Posts

(edited)

I'm in the process of keying my first green screen project (yay) and I'm trying to combine two DK nodes, but I can't figure out how to make that work. 

 

The subject is wearing "green" which will eventually be keyed out, but it's different enough from the background to (I think) warrant to keying two "color" selections.1283562724_ScreenShot2019-08-28at9_53_52PM.thumb.png.a04270d835d54f9fb4565596f27ada6c.png

 

This is my feebled attempt and totally know that's now how a merge node should work, but the introductory Fusion course on here only got me this far...

You can probably get away with a single Ultra Keyer and target the lighter green. However, you can always combine the outputs of two keyers with a Merge tool, like so. Each Ultra Keyer can target a different screen color.

I tried playing around with different Merge Operators - "In" seemed to do what I want but it's created a slight "edge" to everything. Lots to learn still with keying!

Generally, you don't have to change the operator - but one thing you may need to do is add a mask to each green screen tool to limit what area of the frame each tool is working on. Otherwise, one tool may negate or cover up the result of the other.
