First off, thank you very much for looking at my post. I am going to be starting a project that is shot entirely against green screen. I’m wondering if anyone has experience shooting with the ag-dvx100 and getting a good key? If so, I would much appreciate any tips, warnings, etc. that you could pass on.
I don’t think you’ll have any problem with that camera – any good camera. Getting a good key is more dependent on the lighting, software and background. My experience has been that I bought far too small a key cloth. So I need to fix my talent in space for a good effect. I can get some good depth but no left right movement (walk on or off) because of the size – get too big a green screen and it’s tough to light too. If your next production is all green screen – and you haven’t bought one yet, think about how your talent will be choreographed for entrances and exits onto the scene. Not a big deal for a virtual set when you have people at tables or sitting on stools facing the camera.
Thereare all sorts of really great keying software programs. I’ve had no trouble with $100 Ulead, to ?$ Adobe Ultra & A.E. I mean, I’ve had no trouble since figuring out the lighting!
