Following his well-received exploration of the power of customized keying inside Blackmagic Design Fusion, Simon Ubsdell goes even further into his look at the liberation from the inevitable limitations of other people's keyers by building your own inside Fusion. "I also wanted to help users get friendly with Channel Booleans which are the essential building blocks of any advanced effect in Fusion, but which I think scare a lot of beginners," says Simon. "I usually prefer to use techniques like the one shown here and the one in my previous Fusion keying tutorial, because it's easier to pull the key apart if you've built it yourself. "The one thing that I have learned over the years is that while all keyers have their strengths, very few are perfect for every job, so the more different keying techniques you know, the better the results are going to be. And as I've shown here, the important thing is not to try and use one keying solution for the entire shot - always break it down into separate parts wherever necessary, and you'll get much better results.?"
