Green Screen? Remove a Color Improvements

I've been using Camtasia for quite a while now to make University training videos quite successfully. However, I take advantage of the remove a color feature to enhanced my videos. I was hoping with the release of Camtasia 2018 I'd see some improvements in this area but alas, it hasn't changed.

Do you guys plan to improve upon this feature in a near future?

Sometimes to much lighting will reflect the  green screen back on you. I forgot to mention that. If you can tone down the lighting a bit, use color correction if the video is a tad dark.It can help. Add color correction after chroma key.

Here's a trick you'll want to familiarize yourself with in Premiere Pro. It's the Lumetri filter. You want to apply it before Ultra Key for a much better Key.
These guys created a video showing the technique. The video might start at 4:35 automatically.Showing   the technique.  If it doesn't, just fast forward to get there.

Funny you should mentioned the Lumetri filter. I got acquainted with it in the video I just finished. It's really nice. Here's the end result.

The thing is, you use it to target the green screen and everything else separately through the green color channel "Only".
This is new to me and it works really well. It's kinda like Pre-Chroma key???

Yeah totally. It blew my mind. That's why I wish Camtasia had something similar. I really like and root for Camtasia's editing capabilities to all the instructors doing online video vs using Panopto for example.
