Hi Everybody,

 

I believe it's relatively known in video circles that trying to key out blonde hair on a green screen can be pretty tricky as the color blonde neighbors green in the color spectrum.

Cool, cuz I pretty much was like, forget this, I'm jut going to crease mask this. The tools couldn't get a read on it so I thought the best option was just omit the whole thing entirely. Turned out to be the right answer. Thanks!
