Matte Key Help

I have heard you can key a matte ? Is this a better way than the way I have been doing it using a white layer and mask?

    Can you clarify what you mean?
    Keying is the process of creating a matte procedurally by selecting a specific color or tonal range.  Most commonly, shoot an actor in front of a greenscreen, then use a Key to select all the green, and create a matte based on that shape.
