As I said I have pretty good lighting - 4x overhead florescents and 2x on the floor, with several layers of draughting paper over each to even out and reduce the light. But even so there are - unbelievable as it seems to me - still slight variations across the screen which means that it doesn't extract equally. See sample screen shot. I'm doing ok with the Vegas chromakeyer but if there was something better for a minimal cost I might look at it. I'm getting to the point in my project where I will have to do my chromakeying and am interested in getting the very best key I can...

I've heard very good things about the chroma keyer from New Blue.
It's a part of the Video Essentials II package and a trial version is available.
