What difference does the cyc radius make? I am building a green screen at my studio and would like to know if I should make the Radius 1.5ft or 5ft . Any pros and cons will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Hi,

Shadow shape & how much studio you can aford to waste are the biggest differences ! I actually prefer corners rather than a radius as the lighting is more even.

Five feet is easier to paint, easier to light, easier to clean, handles people running up the wall better, repairs easier.
