Hawaiki Keyer 4

Hawaiki Keyer 4 is a complete keying system for green screens and blue screens, designed for Apple's Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5, and Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, featuring two keyers in one, an innovative keying algorithm, a unique diagnostic toolset and unrivalled compositing options, all designed to help you get the perfect key with the minimum of guesswork.

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 — 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.

Mask Tracking 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.

A 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.

BG Match — Background Match automatically adjusts the edges of the foreground to match the luminance of the background.

Edge Replace — replace the edge of the foreground with pixels further from the edge, synthesising new pixels to replace unwanted edge artefacts.

Hawaiki Edge Tools — 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.

Fine Edge is an innovative new feature in the Edge Tools Plug-in that darkens the outer edge and brightens the inner edge of the foreground’s semi-transparent pixels.

Hawaiki Slice — a powerful new image analysis plug-in.

With a host of other professional features, Hawaiki Keyer is the best keying solution that you can buy, and for just $99 it's by far the best value.
