Which is best PC software for chromakeying?

I'd like to know which is the best software to chroma key with (blue/green screen) on a PC?

I've heard very good thinks about Shake, but I guess thats just for Macs.

I don't really care which is best for the buck. I just need to know which is the best.

Thanks!

I'd say Serious Magic is the best.

Well depends on what level your looking at Serious Magic is good at the low end Digital Fusion, Combustion, Shake, After effects and Nuke are good for high end.

Hi , Here is my couple of cents on this topic!! My opinion is to use After Effects 7 with Keylight EASY, RELIABLE and FAST.

Yup. After Effects 7 with Keylight is the best I have used so far on PC.

Fusion can pull miraculous chroma mattes even from lowly digital still camera footage! But it's real high-end, even if there is a free learning edition.
