Hi folks. Does anyone have advice on shooting 120fps with a 90 degree shutter with lighting à greenscreen with 10 space lights and 10K tungsten on subject.
I'm worried we would get flicker from the space lights and have a strobing effect on the greenscreen.
Any advice or heads ups would be greatly appreciated.

Ive been shooting slo mo recently in 60hz and 50hz locations..  I didn't have control over the lighting like you will.. but as a rule I would shoot 100 fps in 50hz ..and Ive been shooting 120 fps in the 60 hz areas.. 1/250th shutter.. for both.. the 120 fps would flicker in the 50hz locations.. of course shooting a test is best..
