back to category

Photron USA offers a powerful option that adds the highest quality chromakey and compositing capabilities to products that support the OFX plug-in standard. It has only been tested on the Assimilate Scratch product. The product, Primatte V for OFX (Scratch), offers a revolutionary solution for ultraprecision matte-control blue-screen compositing.

You will find Primatte's capabilities equal or exceed results delivered by conventional chromakeying techniques and the interface is so simple and easy-to-use. Most artists are using it for production within 60 minutes after installing the software. The Primatte S-100 for OFX functionality has been seamlessly integrated into the Scratch GUI eliminating the need to jump between applications. Primatte's strength has been the ease with which mattes can be pulled on images with all kinds of undesirable artifacts and lighting problems. Give it a try and see what we mean. Get a 30-day, fully functional license and try it out on YOUR machine with YOUR images.

If you are doing chromakey compositing and the quality of your blue or greenscreen shots are less than ideal, you need Primatte. If you are getting blue-spill or hard edges on your composites, you need Primatte. If your current compositing method is causing you more frustration than satisfaction, you need Primatte. Primatte has a unique and proprietary algorithm that delivers surprisingly sophisticated results with a minimum of interaction from the user. Load your foreground and background images, show Primatte the background color and it will do 90% of the work for you in the first click of the mouse or pen. Should your shooting conditions be less than ideal and additional fine tuning be needed, Primatte's refined GUI takes you step by step through the procedures necessary to get the results you are looking for.
