    Why would we laugh? It was pretty good.

    I've never needed to greenscreen, (so far) so I have a couple of questions though.

    1] Was the cloth stretched taut or just left hanging like it is shown at the end? I just wondered if the curves in the cloth interfere with keying out the colour.

    2] What lighting did you use?

    Default Green Screen

    Many Thanks for all the kind words...

    The sheet was as you saw,,,with more time I will be making it taught as I now know it works and also how to do it,,,

    So yes I did find the creases would and did need sorting, they don't chroma well... I'll iron the cloth first as well.

    And as for the colour,,,I went into a material shop and looked at a green colour I liked and thought might work for 4.50

    Usually, the best shade of green is pure green (sometimes called 'chroma green') which has no other colours in at all.

    That is fantastic!

    Indeed we found that a nice taught ironed "screen" worked best. and as suggested by alan mills if you can put a filter on the light that helps blend the subject with the background it helps...

    (If you know what the backgrounds going to be :P
