Hello everyone … Captain John Secondi here with some information on how to use green screens in your video production.
Most everyone has seen a film or video done using green screen technology. Hollywood blockbusters from Marvel Comics all the way down to some fun late night TV shows use green screens to “add in” various moving backgrounds behind the talent. As a point of interest, did you know that the Yankee Stadium background behind George Constanza’s office in the Seinfeld TV series was done using a green screen?
It is usually a large piece of special fabric or a studio space that has been painted with a homogeneous colour, usually green or blue. By having this consistent background behind the talent, the background can be swapped out in post production for static or live video backgrounds. This process is known as chroma keying the scene.
Most video camera sensors are more sensitive to the green or blue spectrum which means it produces less noise to help you create the cleanest possible masking result.
