Dedicated HD chroma key editing tool with smart design features makes transparent videos a reality for iClone's real-time 3D animation engine.

SAN JOSE, CA -- Reallusion has launched popVideo 3, a dedicated HD chroma key editing tool with smart design features that greatly simplifies the task of background video removal. It allows users to work under many environmental conditions making transparent videos a reality for iClone's real-time 3D animation engine.

This new version also comes with a range of smart features that automatically change the Edit mode to work with original, chroma keyed, or masked videos for fast editing and export. Users will find complete masking tools with a powerful Timeline editor that supports industry standard input/output formats. The best part about this new popVideo version is that it finally allows users to import and work with a whole array of professional, external video effect libraries thanks to its unique popVideo format design that synchronizes source videos with alpha channels, in high definition, all while maintaining a small file size for optimized real-time preview. popVideo 3 is now available for $99. Windows compatible.

One-Click Background Removal

Wide Range of Chroma Key Color Support: popVideo 3 is a focused, chroma key editing tool that works with a wide range of setups and conditions that streamline background removals. Traditionally, green and blue screens have always been employed as the go-to colors for backgrounds, limiting not just the types of sets people need to create but also the type of wardrobe that they need to wear on set. Now, Reallusion has launched its latest version of its popVideo software that comes with an instant background removal feature that allows users to work with any color background by simply using a color picker that selects the color of the matte background to set as your Chroma Key, allowing users to be free from previous blue and green color limitations.

Powerful Timeline Editor

Flexible Mask Tools for Imperfect Shots: one of the most exciting parts about popVideo 3 is the newly-added Timeline features that are now fully key-able allowing users control over which chroma key images, mask brush, and settings are applied to frames. This greatly copes with various chroma-keying scenarios such as; lighting change, camera move, color spill, or even out-of-frame recording issues allowing anyone with a mobile camera and a low budget, to make use of instant background video removal.

Industry Standard and Enhanced Output Formats

Real-time Production Performance and Full Resolution Render Quality in one file: With popVideo 3, you can output MOV ProRes4444 transparent video for both PC and Mac, in up to 4K video size. You can also export standard Windows AVI format with separate alpha video files. Additionally, users will be able to adjust export speed and frame rate, along with the newly enhanced duo-resolution format for optimized real-time 3D composite editing and full resolution render output in iClone.  Duo-resolution videos from popVideo 3 offer a unique way to work with a large amount of videos in the same scene with two resolutions. popVideo 3 also provides duo-resolution files for speed & quality, and optimized real-time 3D composite editing in iClone.

Video Effect Library Conversion

Work with Thousands of External Video Effects: popVideo 3's newly enhanced file format opens the door to a huge number of professional video collections that can now be instantly edited and converted into popVideo files. This new popVideo file format has now been optimized to synchronize your HD source video per frame with alpha channels, allowing users to finally convert and employ special effect video collections from professional sources for use in iClone real-time 3D compositing.
