green screen and match move
Posted 30 May 2007 - 10:35 PM
I will be working on a project where the footage is 35mm to digibeta and would like to know if you had any recommendations for how to light a green cyc where the talent has to walk on it. Their feet will be in the shot and all the green has to be replaced. Normally I would use kino supergreen, but I dont want green on the talent. What do you think?
While on subject do you think it could be better to go 35mm to DPX vs SD, there is a huge cost differential, would it help in this case?

Greenscreen floors are tricky to deal with, partly because of spill but mainly because it's hard to sell the contact between the actor and the cg floor. Spill can be dealt with by creating holdout mattes by using rotoscoping for those troublesome areas.
Try compositing this shot without using roto...

As for DPX... Hey, if you can afford it, why not? Really, though, Digibeta is pretty good, and adequate for keying. If you know that you're only finishing on SD, then I don't think you need the extra expense of DPX.
