Does anyone know if there's a 32 bit alternative to using the 8bpc Channel Combiner? I want to work in 32bpc and export as a 32bit DPX or EXR for grading in resolve. Using the current channel combiner gives me a warning about reducing color precision and losing HDR values :(

This is awesome. Thank you, Andrew! Is there a script for this precomposing process? Seems like it would speed up the workflow if you had a ton of green screen footage.

So....this kind of half helped. This method of keying only seems to work for a shot like this whereas if you tried to use it for any other shot, you get stuck with a grey background instead of a green background. Some help on getting rid of the background would be great.
