Does anyone think I'll have fold shadow (crease) problems with this?

I've never used that specific product, but I think that creases probably WILL be an issue. Depending on how you store it and what you use to mount/stretch it I'm sure it will be useable, but it will definitely be a concern. It might be something you can iron (although that is not always practical).

In my experience all green screen fabric have crease problems until we stretch it taunt and/ or steam it. This product says it only has gromets along one 10ft side, which will make it hard to stretch it. ( You can spring clip it to a frame, but annoying to execute, timely and you'll need a lot of spring clips). If it's for a permanent hang it's probably not a big deal. If it's to use now and again and you'll have to set it up over and over again, it's probably too much work. Look for one with gromets along all sides, and has a frame.

Hang in place, spray creases and wrinkles with water from a mister (from the hair dept.) and shoot some hot lights at it and it will 'iron' itself.

you can do two things if you face the crease problem. 1. expose the green screen with larger and diffused source 2. Keep your iris open, have shallow depth so the background goes out of focus. it will give you a good key.

how much wattage are we talkin here?

this sounds like a very long waiting time.

this method is successful for you every time?

thanks
