    I’ve got the recommended color of green and the material all set to film on but I have two questions about greenscreening. If you have 3 elements to your shot, and the elements on the left and the right side of the frame are stationary and the middle elements are moving. Do you greenscreen the moving part or the stationary part and why? Secondly, I get the message about how the green screen must be evenly lit and to avoid spill and that but how do you physically do that? How do you know if the greenscreen is perfectly lit, before you put it in the Mac and Final Cut. Is it possible to tell on the monitor? And if you put your elements to be filmed in front of the green screen and it is lit well and then you light to element to be filmed does it matter if any of the lit on your subject or object if projected onto the greenscreen? Would really appreciate some feedback, shooting this weekend. Thanks!

    If I got green gloves that match the backdrop and light them equally and not obsure the object I am manipulating can that work in post, in terms of eliminating the gloves?

    Thanks for the input I’ll be testing it out and shooting tomorrow and I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks again!

    Not much to add on after zirk’s post, but I would recommend that you test it out yourself before starting the actual shooting. Take a shot of the current scene. Check to see if you get what you want and if your lighting is acceptable for keying. Then, once you know your settings are good to go, start filming.

    I hope I don’t insult you or anything, but you’re sure that nothing in your scene, other than the greenscreen, has a strong color of green, right? Some people actually expect the greenscreen to be the only thing keyed out, and end up wasting all that time because one of their “actors” has a light green costume. That’s why I suggest you test it out first.

    Good luck with your project.
