Videomaker has released a free guide to setting up your own green screen, How to Make a DIY Green Screen: Backgrounds and Software for Green Screen. This useful report is a one-stop guide to materials, software, backgrounds, and everything else that you need to create a do-it-yourself green screen in your own home. Green screens offer a wide range of flexibility and creativity when it comes to making videos.
From news reports to epic battle scenes, having the option of producing a chroma key green screen has made special effects and camera tricks much more accessible to the aspiring filmmaker. In fact, with the innovation of chroma key technology comes the possibility to have any subject in front of any type of background, whether it be free stock footage, a 3D animation graphic or even something else entirely that has been filmed by the movie-maker. Learning how to make a chroma key is a vital step for any aspiring director who wants to add special effects to their videos.
While green screen effects are certainly something that every person interested in video should come to master, the truth of the matter is that most professional green screen kits available on the market today are quite expensive, especially for someone who is just beginning to play around with the technology. For this reason, one great alternative to purchasing professional green screen equipment is to actually make a DIY green screen at home (or wherever one is filming). While this might sound daunting at first, the truth of the matter is that hundreds of dollars can be saved by making video equipment instead of buying it, and in the case of chroma key, almost anyone is capable of doing it.
