EZ Green Screen Pro 4 Now has a Free Mode! (Image Size Limitation in Free mode)
To use the free mode just download EZ Green Screen using the link below. You will be given a choice when installing whether to install it with a license key or to run it in the free mode. The free mode can be used without any watermarks for images 1200 pixel or less in dimension. When running in free mode, images larger than 1200 pixel dimension will run in trial mode with a watermark. Purchasing a license will remove the size limit.
Adaptive algorithm: The new algorithm auto calculates all mask channel adjustments. It adapts itself to a wide range of screen conditions to produce the best masks you will get anywhere! This makes it very easy to use without needed to make any adjustments much of the time.
Easier Dual Mask: The new dual mask is not more work for the user, it is less work! By using dual mask, EZ Green Screen will automatically clean up the edges and recover foreground areas outside the hair area. The hair area will automatically get maximum hair retention.
Refine Edge Smart Radius: EZ Green Screen now works together with Photoshop's smart radius feature (with CS5 and up). This is an optional setting and applies to the hair mask only. The area outside of the hair will use a more crisp and clean edge so both the hair area and non-hair area are optimized.
Halo Chop: It's now easy to get rid of those annoying edge halos which are produced by bright luminance from the green screen.
Auto detects screen color: Version 4 will auto detect chroma key screens from 75 - 260 degree and adjust it's extraction accordingly.
Foreground recovery: This can be used to recover some green on green (or blue on blue) conditions. While it won't recover when the clothing is exactly the same color as the screen, it can recover quite a lot of green on green conditions.
Light Wrap: This has both highlight and shadow modes.
Import Backgrounds (currently CS5 and higher): This allows you to add backdrops prior to applying EZ Green Screen. This way you can make adjustments while viewing against the background of your choice.
"1 Click" button for great 1 click extractions
We added a new menu item for 1 click extractions. This option SKIPS the user interface. The new adaptive algorithm adapts to each image. Many images can get great looking extraction with a single click!
Tip: Watch Full Screen and change the quality to 1080p to really see the details :)
Teal Green Shirt on Green Screen
It's not always possible to get a perfect green screen extraction when the person is wearing green clothing. However, EGS 4 pushes the capability as far as possible while still maintaining the ability for spill correction. If the green clothing is not a true chroma key green then it is often possible to get the clothing back. Also, this video demonstrates the new Halo Chop feature which cleans up around the edges. The hair is protected from the halo chop by use of the dual mask process.
