Red/Green/White/Black Screen

Post  chrismon0 on Fri Feb 27, 2009 12:21 pm

At school we got a project: we need to present the news! (hurray)
We have the idea to steal the background of a news flash and also footage and put our self in front of it.
But I don't want to mask all the stuff so we are using a screen!

My question is can you use a Red Screen Or White Or black screen if so which one is the best because we
don't want to buy a complete screen for 60 euro's for only one time. If the Red/White/Black is absolutely crap is there
a better way like green paper?

Blue screens are used in TV every day. A red screen is much less common but should work....A white and other color may not work...
You may want to see Marks Green Screen Basics youtube videos...

Tubetape is a great place to get supplies for keying. They have some lower priced screens made of thin plastic which will work for you.

I am actually surprised your school gave you this project without offering supplies or money for supplies...

I'd certainly go for green or blue, as they will make keying the easiest.

You could just buy green paint and paint a wooden board or so.

anything that is green should work, in fact any color will work depending on your editing software but the reason why the industry uses green and blue screen is because they're the furthest away from out skin colour. go into paint and a green box and a blue box, next to each other obviously, now select all and invert the colours, what color are the boxes?
