    So, every time I try to greens screen, I have tons of problems with the color of the greenscreen reflecting off the LEGO, creating a hideous effect. I have experimented a lot, and can not figure out how to fix it. So I thought I would ask here.



    I have read somewhere that blue screen instead of green screen is best for Brickfilming since there is a lower chance that it would actually be similar to the color of the scene implements (trees, grass, etc). I think you should give blue screen a try.

    Here are some tutorials that deal with live subject green screen but the tips translate to stop motion too. (go to around the 5 min mark for the green glow problem)




    Oh, here’s the article that mentioned it :


    Sorry about the late reply. Anyway, I have tried a bluescreen, and it didn’t really help because it has the same problem as the green screen: the LEGO reflects the color. But thanks anyway. I’ll take a look at the article. 😉 @Mark I will definately watch the videos. I’ll let you know if they help. 🙂

    The hardest part is the hugh and reflection due to the Lego’s shine/texture.

    Good luck! I’m interested to find out your results and fix for your problem!!!




    Keep us posted on how it turns out!

    What greenscreen did you use now and before?


    I was actually using a green piece of paper before. xP It actually somewhat worked. But I cuildnt get the subject far enough away without seeing everything else. so I used a more fabric-like one that my mom got. It’s kind of an elasticy, felty thing. I don’t know what to call it. xD But anyway, that was much bigger and worked pretty nicely.
