Serious Magic ULTRA 2 Professional Keying Software with Virtual Sets
Revolutionary Keying Technology

Serious Magic's ULTRA 2 is a breakthrough that transforms keying into a practical daily production tool for all types of video professionals. ULTRA 2's drag-and-drop simplicity allows video editors to create highly realistic background composites that are convincing in every detail, even from marginal video sources.

ULTRA 2's Vector Keying™ technology blows away the primitive keyer built into your video editing software. Now shots that used to be impossible to key – uneven lighting, wrinkled backgrounds and frizzy hair – can be finished in minutes. ULTRA 2 will even preserve the shadows of your talent and achieve complex keys such as smoke, liquids and transparent objects with minimal effort. It's simply remarkable.

The World's Best Keyer Just Got Better
It's been two incredible years since ULTRA first revolutionized the world of keying. Now we're unleashing ULTRA 2—the next generation. ULTRA 2 includes powerful new features and radical new ways to key. Plus many of the most valuable ULTRA tools are enhanced or expanded with faster workflow and higher quality.


Twice the Speed, Twice the Resolution

  • Fast, Faster, Fastest
    The world's fastest software keyer just got faster. ULTRA's keyer has been entirely rewritten to take advantage of the power of the GPU chip in your graphics card. Turn on the new "GPU Boost" mode and, on recent generation cards, ULTRA 2 can key HD in real-time and standard definition faster than real-time!
  • HDV & HD support
    The world is going HD and now you'll be ready with output in 1080i, 1080p, 720p and more.
  • Widescreen 16:9 & Progressive Scan Support
    Output standard definition 16:9 or 4:3 video in 480p and 480i.
  • Color Correction
    New improvements help you get more natural keys.
  • 32-Bit Rendering
    Enhancements give you higher quality output.

Innovative New Ways to Key

  • Plus-90 Mode
    Increase the resolution of most key shots by 33%. Turn a standard definition DV camera into a source for HD resolution keys.
  • Virtual Shadows & Reflections
    Solves the hardest part of keying - lighting for clean shadows. Now virtual shadows are automatically generated.
  • Mask Paint
    This invaluable new tool can quickly save "impossible" to key shots.
  • Multi-Point Pan & Zoom
    Now you can pan and zoom up to 64 different points in one scene.
  • Flexible Image Placement
    Now you can move and reposition talent in any virtual set including trak shots.
  • Load/Save Presets
    Save individual settings for major functions in ULTRA and load them in other projects.
  • Loop Flag
    Enables your secondary footage to loop infinitely providing greater flexibility about when to end your scenes.
  • Insert Multiple B-Sources
    Insert and position up to four B-Sources when creating your own virtual sets.

Versatile Compatibility Enables You to Work Faster

    ULTRA now supports QuickTime input and output, perfect for Final Cut Pro™ and Avid™ users. ULTRA also supports direct output to Flash video.
  • High Resolution Stills
