    SOme say green for digital, blue for film.

    Some say makes no odds.

    Some say use what works best depending on the clours in the scene.

    Green or blue becuse those colours are (well they should be) very low in skin tones.

    Green for the most part because when shooting digital, blue screen has a tone to it that human skin has as well so cropping becomes much more difficult. Even though our skin is tan the computer, when processing, doesn't know the difference that well and so cropping becomes more difficult. More so if you are poorly lit your set.

    Even thought blue and green screen are both really close to each other, green screen would be the better choice over all.
    Imagination and discipline are like yin and yang; both are completely different and yet without each other they are nothing.

    Blue screen is best for outdoor shooting.

    I would suggest that it depends on what you're putting in front of it, or what you're replacing it with.

    Human flesh actually has tinges of green as well as blue, so for faces it doesn't really matter. Caucasian skin tone is mainly a mixture of red and green. Since most digital images have twice as many green pixels as red or blue, green is usually chosen for sharpness however... If you're going to replace the background with a night scene then blue is often chosen because a bit of blue "fringing" isn't so obvious as a bit of green.

    So really there isn't a simple "green" or "blue" answer.
