This keyer for green screens and blue screens, features an innovative keying algorithm, a unique diagnostic toolset and great compositing options, but how well does it work in practice?
You can go through the app or the web to find the download link.

Starting out

Here’s the FCP X Keyer on the left, and Hawaiki’s default result on the right, with less opaque fabric and reduced white halos in the hair.

Initial Results

One of many ways to see how Hawaiki Keyer does its magic.

Analysis View

See two of the optional displays at once if you wish.


This edge matte can be used to darken the magenta areas and lighten the yellow ones.

More Controls

My slightly blurry hair from the FCP X Keyer on the left is much improved with Hawaiki Keyer and a little tweaking — and of course further tweaking is possible.

Minor Issues

So many options, but watch the videos to get a better understanding of how to use them.
