    Blue Screen editing

    New to blue screen. Where and how does the sizing of objects happen in the blue screen. Example running down a stairway, sizing of your blue stairs to those on your video.

    Hi Crossfire

    With digital we tend to use green screens but you can still key out blue. Resizing depends simply on what NLE you are using. You normally would film someone on the key screen and then import the footage into your NLE together with the background footage you need to use, key out the green or blue so you have a composite of the actor on your background. If you say, wanted him to be a lot smaller, you would then just resize the keyed out track.

    Give us a specific example and we could probably help a lot more!

    Chris is right. I have actually found that the easiest key color is




    It keys the best, the only problem is unless you set your editing program to have this color built in (as i have since the studio is all that color) A lot less people wear orange then green. ( I do also have a green wall since i live in Gainesville Florida [Home of the Florida gators {Orange and blue}])

    I would think that the amber/orange would give keying issues with skin tones. Are you using a traditional key method with that or one of the advanced computer methods that checks for edges?

    that color does not really do it justice. It is super bright. I am using computers, if i need to key for the news that we do here, then i use a green wall so the Grass Valley can key it out.

    I'm guessing the color you are actually using is the polar opposite of green (an amber-like color)?

    No the polar opposite is more of a pink/purple color.

    Sorry, I didn't mean the polar opposite, I mean the mirror across the X-axis (vertical flip) on a standard scope (I forget the exact definition of that line, but it ends up near +I)

    Wow, that's lit smoothly. What method are you using to light it? do you have high ceilings?

    PS: It's good you called me on it, otherwise we would confuse people who read this in the future.
