2. Use the color picker to click the green in the EDIUS timeline preview window and then use the settings as seen below. You may also wish to add a drop shadow if needed. For a more sharp key outline, set Feather and Shrink to 0 and reduce the Smooth Key value for desired results. If the key was lit well and it covered the full frame, there is no need to enable the Garbage Matte. If using the Garbage Matte to mask out unwanted areas, go to step 3
