How do I add a drop shadow to a zMatte key using an Avid Editing System?
Posted by Peter Moyer on 04 January 2008 12:23 AM
To add a drop shadow to a zMatte key on an Avid Editing System, you will need to have our Composite Suite set of plug-ins. Here's how to do it:
  • On V1 place your background.
  • On V2 and V3, place your foreground.
  • On V2, apply zMatte and set the View menu to Matte.
  • Nest this effect with a Color Paste plug-in from Composite Suite to add the shadow on top of the background.
  • On V3, add zMatte and key over your shadow.
