Chapter 7. Getting Creative with Keys > Matte Keys to Emphasize Your Image

Matte Keys to Emphasize Your Image

I like looking for resources that go beyond the “how to use a certain feature” in the program and apply a more creative approach. This example should help spur some ideas that you can use in your everyday projects. For this particular example, I wanted the viewer to focus on the product in the center of the screen. The desired effect was to keep the product in its natural color while applying a dark-colored tint to the moving footage around the product (see Figure 7.17). Fortunately, the main image was not moving, so applying a single still matte key would work.

Figure 7.17. Use matte keys to make your main image stand out from the rest of the image.
