Chroma key green bright to be precise. I can’t afford a green screen so my next choice is green poster board from walmart. I don’t have a way to walmart at the moment so I thought I’d improvise.

I had this light bulb moment ( it was a dim epiphany but it still counts ) that I’ll just find the right color value for green make a huge image and put it on the TV ! I was doing a little “I’m so clever dance” because it even solves the problem of being evenly lit. Well, for photos –in a pinch it’ll do, maybe.

I’m looking to do this with video though and my happy dance turned into a slumpy slump when I realized I had forgotten about the dreaded screen flicker . So yeah – that’s not going to work. The funniest part is that when I tried to import it into a couple video programs all I got was ( guess what?) a green screen. Not the green I was looking for either lol

Yes, it is very bright!

  1. Tune your consciousness to the infinite, the divine love that creates happiness and when you stray from the path remember, morning is only twelve hours away!

  2. +Rachel Blum  I don't have any white sheets but I do have white walls and one hell of a clamp lamp ( I tripped my circuit breaker with it once ) I don't have After effects but as I'm reading I'm seeing that Blender has a video editor so I'm looking into that . Thank you !

  3. No, luma keying just goes off of brightness. Difference keying removes pixels that are in the same spot and have an almost identical color value. (It basically subtracts a background image, but only where the background is visible)

    Another thing you can try is hang a white bed sheet, if you have one. If you have bright lighting, that might be enough.

  4. What exactly are you trying to do? There are a couple of ways to work this even without a green screen per se. A solidly colored wall in the background is fairly easy to remove. (

    If you have decent video software, try out difference keying. (Instead of color keying)
