  1. The man’s forehead is problematic (e.g.: 01:00:08:08). The solution is, I create a mask on the head to solve the thing or any other way is better for solve this problem? Bernd, what is your idea, how you think solve this?

    • Yeah, some spots from the really bright highlights are not perfectly solved with this – I think also in the solution from BMD. But I felt that after the screen-blend compositing it didn’t really show. However if it does – maybe I’m wrong – then yes, rotoscoping might be needed. Those erode/dilate mask manipulations can help but they don’t always solve everything. There’s more rotoscoping on the greenscreen keying examples.
