New in Hawaiki Keyer 4
For Hawaiki Keyer 4 (HK4), we have rebuilt the matte extraction algorithm from the ground up to give you even better quality keys with even less effort.
And we’ve added a whole range of exciting new features to help you key even more accurately and with even greater finesse.
Two Keyers in One
Unique new feature that gives you a Primary and a Secondary keyer within the one plug-in. Tackle tricky problem areas much more easily while avoiding any compromise on the fine edge detail. The Secondary keyer section gives you all the same controls as the Primary with full control of the mask between the two.
A new tracking system gives you precise and powerful automated realtime tracking of the Secondary mask with the minimum of additional set-up and no need to pre-compute tracking data.
New advanced matte extraction algorithm:
Does more of the heavy lifting for you – clearing the backing and preserving edges while also giving those who need it more fine-grained control. In short, faster results and better edges, more easily.
Background Match automatically adjusts the edges of the foreground to match the luminance of the background. So if a foreground pixel is darker than the background it will be brightened and if lighter than the background, darkened. BG Match can be used as an alternative or complement to Light Wrap.
Allows you to replace the edge of the foreground with pixels further from the edge, synthesising new pixels to replace unwanted edge artefacts. Useful for dealing with a noticeable dark or light edge caused by excessive in-camera sharpening and chroma subsampling as well as the real world light wrap that is present in some shots.
Hawaiki Edge Tools
Edge Tools is a new plug-in which can be added on top of the main keyer module. Provides standalone Light Wrap and Edge adjustments – including the new Fine Edge, Edge Replace and BG Match operations – that can be used with any image with an alpha channel. For example you can use it with an HSV Keyer or use it on titles to create interesting edge effects.
A new feature in the Edge Tools Plug-in, Fine Edge allows you to darken the outer edge and brighten the inner edge of the foreground’s semi-transparent (grey matte values) pixels. Quite sophisticated results can be achieve with a look that differs from the main Edge brightness. It is also more efficient.
Pre-Qualify now has separate views for the background and foreground mattes and matte black and white controls (replacing FG and BG separation) that work independently on each matte. Makes it much easier to isolate a correction to the foreground or background or correct both differently e.g use a hard foreground matte and a soft background matte.
A powerful new image analysis plug-in.
