Unlock The IBKs Potential

The IBK (Image-Based Keyer) is one of my all-time favourite keyers.

It's very robust and consistently produces excellent results – even with difficult, unevenly lit blue/green screens. However, limiting yourself to using only the IBKColour and IBKGizmo node pair is a waste of the keyer's potential.

In this tutorial, I'll show you:

  • How the IBK works and how it's different from other keyers:

    The IBK takes a whole other approach to keying than typical keyers, which has major benefits that we'll look into.


  • The hidden features of the IBK and why they are useful:

    The IBK is unique in that you can actually look under the hood and see how it's made. And inside, there are additional options hidden away which we'll explore.


  • Advanced IBK setups that will help you extract a detailed matte when keying:

    These setups will show you ways of thinking outside of the box and combining other tools to enhance the off-the-shelf IBK nodes and pull a better key.
