I'm looking at doing some green screen experimentation, but am confused by the fact there seem to be two disparate systems out there and am unsure which one is best. Both seem to be similarly priced.
The first is as I am used to seeing on DVD "Making of" features: a green screen with various lights. The second involves a light that attaches to the camera lens and emits the required color (ie green) with a silvery "reflective" curtain.
My brother, who has done some work with video recommends the latter solution because it fixes "the most difficult area of green screen - the lighting which can take days to set up". But since this is different from how the professionals seem to do it I'm more tempted towards the "traditional" solution (ie a green or blue screen backdrop).
Anybody got any thoughts or experience they can share?
