Red Giant has released Primatte Keyer 5.1, an update that adds support for Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X and Motion. Using the same keying technology from films such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Spider-Man, Primatte Keyer lets users easily remove a blue- or green-screen background, often with the touch of a button.

“Over the last year we’ve heard, non-stop, from editors that they need chroma keying technology in their NLEs,” said Aharon Rabinowitz, Red Giant’s head of marketing. “Many of them have expressed frustration, both with needing to leave their editor to do even basic compositing and with the loss of time that comes with it. We’re really excited to help editors solve these challenges.”

Primatte Keyer 5.1 takes chroma keying tools that have, up until now, only been available to Adobe After Effects users and puts them into the hands of editors. Primatte Keyer now supports After Effects, Premiere Pro, FCP X and Motion, giving all users of these host apps direct access to high-end tools for fast automatic keying, digital green screen relighting, and indispensable compositing and cleanup tools. 

Red Giant Primatte Keyer 5.1 is a free upgrade for existing version 5 users. Users of older versions can upgrade to version 5.1 for $99 and new users can purchase the software for $499.
