Green screen: After Effects, Premiere or Resolve?

What the best (or easiest) app for green screen use: After Effects, Premiere or Resolve (with Continuum green screen plugins)?

I’m using a rather underpowered 2015 iMac*, and I find it is slooow going!

*4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, 32 G, AMD Radeon R9 M390 2 GB. 2TB internal SSD.

Even without any plugin at all, no doubt the best would be Fusion. Yes, it’s not in your list but taking into account it’s also a dedicated tab in Resolve…

Thanks for that…yes, I should have added Fusion, I’m new to Resolve, but the stand alone Fusion is included in the license. I’ll check it out.

Hi there,

My suggestion for keying shots would be to work with the Continuum filters, using them in the After Effects host - BCC Primatte Studio is the best keying solution on the market today and it runs quite nicely in that host on both Mac and Win platforms.


Thanks Peter.
