Keying out green, but when I've made image black and white Help.

Hi,

Been using AE for years but never needed to do this until now.

I have a photo of a face which has a green screen behind, I put it in AE and want to remove it.

But I also want the photo in black and white.

On other software it registers the green and takes it out even though I've made the image black and white.

But on AE I can't seem to key the green, because it now thinks it's gray.

 

Any idea's? I know I could use photoshop and create an alpha without green behind but I get sent these photos and it's a lot! so I'd like to just click 'replace' the photo with the new one and it retain the keying.

Any help would be great.

(Hope this makes sense?)

Figured it out.

I had made the image black and white before keying (long story, I also have on the same time line colour versions).

I moved the black and white effect lower than the keying effect and it worked!  didn't know that.

If this helps someone else great.
