In this tutorial, Kenan Proffitt goes through the very simple process on how to use a matte key (picture 2) to key out a video with rotoscoping. I have duplicated his exact process by using a "Set Key" node with the video clip plugged into the "Image" input and the rotoscoped matte plugged into the "Alpha" input. (picture 1) It's fairly straightforward. But when I do that, the result is only half-way working. The rotoscope subject is perfectly still there while the background is only sort of transparent-not 100% transparent (picture 3). Why is this happening? enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

The alpha channel needs to be associated to the image. Use an Alpha Convert node and choose Straight to Premultiplied.
