Would this be a good greenscreen alternative?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm shooting a video that i need a greenscreen for.
I don't have the money I'm too lazy to go out and buy/make one.
I have a blanket this color but I'm wondering if it would work
Its basically this color orange-color-background.jpg

Thanks!

This. Not to mention many common light sources generally have that tint to some degree or another. Tbqh, that's probably one of the worst colors you could possibly use.

Green is kind of a bastard stepchild in visual arts, which is in no small part why it's the predominate color used for keying.

Anyway, you might be able to get away with it in very specific circumstances, but generally, that color will be a bit difficult to work with.

Being lazy now just means hours spent in post....but Yes you can try the orange as long as you have enough color separation

The problem with the blanket is that there will be a lot of shadows, even with beautiful lighting. IMHO your best bet is to do a quick test with your blanket (it won't take long) and evaluate the results.

If you aren't satisfied, pick up some Behr S-G-430 ("Sparkling Apple") paint from your local Home Depot, and apply it to large sheets of cardstock taped together. It will create a more flat, even surface for light. Ensure that your new canvas is lit in at least two places, and make use of diffusers. If you don't have any, a translucent material a couple of feet from the lens (so as not to burn) will work wonders in diffusing the light.

This_v2.
But since you got that color you could do some pre tests. You could overlay something on that color as a background. Then import in the software you want to key with and see if that works.
