How to Download and Install Keylight 1.2 for After Effects CS4 for Free

If you are looking for a powerful and easy-to-use keying plugin for Adobe After Effects, you might want to check out Keylight 1.2. Keylight is a chroma keyer that allows you to remove green or blue backgrounds from your footage, and preserve fine details such as hair, smoke, or glass. Keylight was developed by The Foundry, a leading visual effects company, and is used by many professional filmmakers and compositors.

Download File:

Keylight 1.2 is compatible with After Effects CS4, as well as other versions of After Effects from CS3 to CC 2019. However, it is not included in the default installation of After Effects CS4, so you will need to download it separately and copy it to the right folder in your After Effects directory. In this article, we will show you how to do that in a few simple steps.

Step 1: Download Keylight 1.2

The first thing you need to do is to download the Keylight 1.2 plugin file from the official website of The Foundry. You can find it [here]. You will need to register for a free account and provide some basic information before you can access the download page. Once you are logged in, you will see a list of available downloads for different versions of After Effects and operating systems. Choose the one that matches your system and click on the download link.

You will get a ZIP file that contains the Keylight plugin file and some documentation. Save the ZIP file to a location where you can easily find it later, such as your desktop or downloads folder.

Step 2: Extract the ZIP File

The next step is to extract the contents of the ZIP file using a program such as WinZip or WinRAR. You can do this by right-clicking on the ZIP file and choosing "Extract All" or "Extract Here" from the menu. You will get a folder named "keylight-ae-1_2" that contains the plugin file and some PDF files.

Open the folder and locate the file named "keylight-ae-1_2.aex". This is the plugin file that you need to copy to your After Effects directory. You can also read the PDF files if you want to learn more about how to use Keylight and its features.

Step 3: Copy the Plugin File

The final step is to copy the plugin file to the appropriate folder in your After Effects installation directory. You can do so by following these steps:

  • Locate your After Effects installation directory. It is usually located in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files\Plug-ins\Effects.

  • Open the folder and look for a subfolder named "Keylight". If it does not exist, create a new folder and name it "Keylight".

  • Copy the plugin file "keylight-ae-1_2.aex" from the extracted folder and paste it into the "Keylight" folder.

  • Close all windows and restart After Effects.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Keylight 1.2 for After Effects CS4. You can now use it to key out your footage and create amazing composites.
