Tips for Greenscreen

Hi there,

does anyone have any tips for using a greenscreen, or with the lighting of green screens?


  • @LDYFilming  In addition to that thread...always remember these three words:  Lighting, Lighting, Lighting!  It can make all the difference in the world.  You want to minimize or eliminate hard shadows so put some space between objects and the screen.  Light the screen behind the objects(People) out of frame and use soft slightly downward lighting on the actors or objects.  At least, that's what I try to do anyway. Conventionally, you want a three point light system but with green screen 5 is better. A fill, a Key and a backlight and two lights on the green screen.  Definitely, read that thread though.
