HVX for Greenscreen Work?
Posted 28 June 2006 - 07:19 PM
I'm going to be shooting a short project which is heavy on chromakeying. I've shot bluescreens before with 35mm but for budgetary reasons I'm interested in trying out the HVX-200 and wondering if anyone has any experience using it with blue or greenscreens and if so, what the verdict was in getting good pulls.

Thanks for the link. This helps me as well.
Here is a link to a bank commercial. Seamed to have pulled acceptable keys. I have seen several uses with keying the HVX and some have been successful. The ones with blue screen have been the worst I have seen. That could just be due to chance, or perhaps as David Mullen has mentioned before, the blue channel is noisier. What I have noticed is that as long as your not trying to key smoke/fog, flowing liquids, strawberry blonde whispy hair, etc. it seams completely acceptable for keying. I have actually pulled good keys before from well lit and placed subjects with mini DV(although very limiting). So I am sure the HVX will provide more blue/green freedom for shots and subjects.

This greenscreen facility is in suburbs of chicago and it was cheaper for me to fly out there and spend the whole day as compared to using it in NYC.
