Removing edges from bluescreen keys.....

Well, I'm doing some lightsaber rotoscoping and some bluescreen keying for the final fight sequence of a fanfilm, and am doing well, but having some trouble with the edges.

I posted a pic showing what I mean.

I tried changing the blue hue to make it more solid before I key, I tried squooshing it to 180 x 480 (1/4th horizontal resolution) to get rid of that 4:1:1 DV thing, then stretching the alpha back out to 720 x 480, I've tried keying it normally. I've tried matte chokers, I've tried spill supressor, I've tried doing everything I can, but I still get these AWFUL edges.

Help, anyone?

I think I figured it out. I think it's just a lack of backlight. I have the demo of commotion pro and tried out the primatte keyer and there, and it rules.

Anyway, I couldn't export it so I capture a screenshot from it.

I think the edges are still "bad," but they are definitely much better, in my opinion.
