    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.

    I always thought before that doing chroma keying requires a special kind of fabric or material, good to know that you could actually just use things that could be found at home :-)

    Yeah. I think the more expensive ones probably work better for filming people than LEGO. With LEGO you will always have to deal with reflection no matter what your greenscreen is like.

    Hmm, have you tried distancing the Legos from the green screen? I think that would help to minimize the reflection factor from the lights :-) Using a lighter shade of green also helps based on what I’ve read.

    Well, The reason why its Reflecting and Not working, is because your just use a Regular Sheet of Green/Blue Paper, The best way is to get a Real Chroma key or A big Board, And also your Lighting is Important. I hope this Helps.

    Tutorial Admin, what do you think would be the ideal kind of lighting? How many watts and at what distance?
