Quick Overview

A powerful keyer without the complicated settings.

Add Your Tags

YY_MagicKey is a very powerful keying plugin, minus the complicated settings. It was designed specifically with the keying-out of premultiplied stock elements (explosions, blood, muzzle flares, etc) in mind, and never takes a long time to set up.

Each of these keys (free from detonationfilms.com) took only seconds to set up, and are ready to composite into any scene. YY_MagicKey always produces high-quality extractions (unless of course the footage is low quality).


  • Background Color: Color that will be keyed out
  • Crush Transparent: The bigger this is, the more stuff will be keyed out
  • Crush Opaque: The bigger this is, the more opaque the keyed image will be
  • Despill Amount: Removing any cast-color from the background
  • Despill Size: Size of the border around the image to "despill" (0 for none, 1 for whole image)


  • Source: Unmodified source
  • Alpha Matte: Transparency matte
  • Despill Matte: Areas to perform despill
  • Final Output: Exactly what it says on the tin
