Beginners Guide to Green Screen Videos

The costumes for color photos are green screens and blue screens that substitute the strong background behind which a picture or video is subject with a new background, otherwise known as a photo or video editing. You may be watching a chroma-key picture when you watch the meteorologist positioned before a map or when Godzilla wanders up a house. 

“Why do you need to pick a green or blue screen?” some may ask. It is much easier to differentiate a backdrop from a human subject in a picture or video if the background is of a solid color not present in human skin colors, such as green and blue. The chroma testing technique can be overwhelming at first, so I implore you to read through this green screen guide carefully to get started on the right foot. 

The question is, what are the tools you will need to get started as a beginner? Check this 

TOOLS NEEDED TO GET STARTED WITH GREEN SCREEN 

Is it feasible for a beginner to accomplish this? Don’t you think that removing and adjusting picture backgrounds sound difficult? Don’t be alarmed! Through digital photography and applications designed specifically for that purpose, you’ll be sharing backgrounds with the best of them in no time. The items needed to kick start operation are; laptop computer, digital camera, camera to computer cable, green screen background, studio lighting, background stand digital background, screen suit (optional), and CHROMA photography software. 

Now that we know all of these items, let us consider how we can start our first project. 

TIPS ON HOW TO GREEN SCREEN 

Below are the tips to start the green screening of your first project. 

Tip #1. Set up your green screen backdrop, keeping in mind that if you’re using a portable stand, you’ll need to find out how to balance it because so that it doesn’t flap in the wind or jump around as your design moves. 

Tip #2. Remove the wrinkles. While foam-backed screens are practically wrinkle-free, they are more expensive. If you’ve selected a green cloth screen, you can minimize wrinkles by brushing it with water or using a portable wok. When it dries, try to extend it tightly to reduce the curves that can cause reflections in the foreground. 

Tip #3. Set up your green screen backdrop, keeping in mind that if you’re using a portable stand, you’ll need to find out how to balance it because so that it doesn’t flap in the wind or jump around as your design moves. 

Tip #4. Select the preferred digital background 

Tip #5. Remove the wrinkles. While foam-backed screens are practically wrinkle-free, they are more expensive. If you’ve selected a green cloth screen, you can minimize wrinkles by brushing it with water or using a portable wok.  

Tip #6. Place the individual or picture. By putting some space between the model and the green screen, you will stop shadows falling on it. Test from your own illumination and target until no shadows appear in the background. 

Tip #7. Transfer the image to the laptop computer 

Tip #8 Click your picture, then follow the guidelines on your application.
