Fixing Typical Problems

As you now well know, because I've taken every opportunity to drill it into your head, the number one solution to most matte problems is to break the image being matted into multiple sections rather than trying to get one matte in one pass. You can divide the matte as follows:

  • Core and edge matte (hard and soft matte)

  • Holdout masks for particular areas of the frame (useful if lighting varies greatly within the frame, or if one area contains a particularly challenging element, such as hair or motion blur)

  • Temporal split (if light conditions change as the shot progresses)
