Green Screen Guidelines
When using a physical green screen, proper lighting is very important to help the chroma-keying process, for better green screen results:
- Straighten your backdrop. Your green screen must fill the entire screen. No gaps, creases, or wrinkles should be present on-camera.
- Resolution Minimum. From your Talk Studio, locate and click the up-arrow next to your Stop Video button to change your resolution to a minimum of 720p resolution.
- Even lighting. Lighting is the most important. The same hue of green throughout your backdrop will result in better quality.
- A Good GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). Green screen utilizes a lot of processing power. Having a quality graphics card will ensure optimal performance.
- Green-colored clothing. If your clothes are green, you will camouflage yourself when green screen is enabled.
- Adjust native ISO. For most professional DSLR cameras, the ISO is the sensitivity of your camera sensor. If it's too high, you'll get graininess which makes the chroma-keying process much more difficult. Native ISO is the best option, so it doesn't compromise power to increase exposure in low-light scenarios.
- Get beautiful, high-quality backgrounds. Large HD backgrounds make a great first impression. Visit sites like Unsplash, Pexels, and StockSnap.io to find your ideal backdrop.
