Hi......I am doing a shoot with a lone singer sitting on a stool about 15 feet in front of a large green screen cyclorama. Because I can only use the lights being made available to me I have daylight rated Kinos to light the green screen and tungsten lights for the singer. If I balance the camera for tungsten will this mixing of two color temps effect my ability to get a clean key in post?

 

Thanks

You would probably be fine... but if you put some green gel on the daylight Kinos hitting the green screen, it would help narrow the spectrum of light coming off of the screen.

 

Or put some 1/2 blue gel on your tungsten Kinos and set the camera in-between 3200K and 5600K.
