Turn Color Spill Into A Realistic Composite

When a green screen is brightly lit, the light can actually reflect that color back onto a subject. And the reflection can be difficult to remove from the subject.
ROBUSKEY switches the color from the spill to a background of your choice and makes a realistic composite.
