Keying out windows?
Posted 23 March 2006 - 12:57 PM
I don't really have lights to spare besides the practical office lighting. I intend to tape up cardboard painted chroma key green to the windows and just keep the actors a good distance away - but I'm curious if it might be good to leave about 1 inch all the way around each window with light still coming through to maintain the illusion of real daylight spilling in. I'm concerned that this might allow for a lot of spill. I'm using Keylight with After Effects, so I know I'll have a lot of control, but I just want to be sure I do this in the best possible way.

On my latest music video, all the day interiors in the hotel (except the one in dusk) were done this way. First a normal pass in telecine with the beauty grade, then a fully cranked down one for the exterior - a so called two pass in telecine. Film has the upper hand here though - it can hold information in the highlights that video can't. But you can always expose for the sky with video as a plate.
Have a look at it here:

even though the imagery didn't contain a story or point to me...
I LOVED some of the imagery...the bus shots were magnificent,
all the warm colors were a spectacular pleasure!
