keylight and flickering key

Question. I am using keylight on a project to key out a chroma background shout DVCPROHD on the HVX200. Some of my keys look really good, some of them not so much. Several of the keys are flickering around the edges quite badly....any suggestions of what I can do to fix this?

Tim -

If the flickering is just around the edges, you may try increasing the Screen Softness setting (in the Screen Matte section of Keylight).

have you tried laying down a matte choker?

You may lose some of your subjects profile, but it will most likely fix your flickering edges.
