Hello:

I've shot green screen before with a miniDV camera and had problems in post because of the cameras edge enhancements. I understand that if you can turn them off or reduce the edge detailing, keying will be easier in post.

I am shooting with the DSR570WS which is not my camera and don't have access to a manual. Does anyone know how I can turn off the edge enhancements without compromising the picture? I will have little time when on set to play with the camera prior to shooting.

Thanks.

Hi,

I don't remember specifically, but it's in the menu in a fairly obvious place. "Additional Process" if I remember correctly, but look around. I think there's both H and V detail settings to reduce.

If you'd like me to email a PDF copy of the DSR-570WS user manual to you, my contact info is available on my website (click the link below). It's a 3MB file.
