Chroma Keying Equipment
blue screen, chrome key, Gear, Green Screen
Getting started with visual effects? Here are some low budget essentials that you need to start shooting (chroma) key shots.
Green / Blue Screen
Belle Drape Collapsible Background
60×72″ portable chroma key (blue and green side). Perfect to key out smaller objects or head shots.
Photek 10×12′ Green Screen Background
A bigger cloth that fits an entire person. It’s pretty cheap, but very decent quality. NOTE: cloth only, buy stands separate!
Flashpoint 10′ Background Support System
A simple support system to hang your green screen . You don’t NEED this, but helps setting the cloth up.
Lighting your green screen
To pull of a good chroma key you have to light your green screen really well. So it is essential to have some lights. I recommend using at least two lights (with diffusion), with the exact same color temperature & brightness and place them on both sides of the green screen, a few feet away on a 45 degree angle. To see the lights that we I use, head over to our Lighting For Video article. If you’re not familiar with using lights for your video I recommend watching our introduction to lighting course on Skillshare.
Tether Tools – 2″ Clamps
These are a little more expansive than those plastic clamps, but their’re worth it! We use these for many applications, including tightening a green-screen. I recommend getting at least 6 of these.
Flashpoint backdrop Holder
Not necessary, but it does make the job easier to put your portable green-screen in place. Note: you will need a light-stand to use this!
Datavideo Green Tape
Some green tape for keying smaller objects or to wrap around anything that needs to be keyed.
