Green screen doesn’t suck, green screen just sucks – here’s why and how to fix it

2 min read

Taking photos on a green screen has become far more common these days. Green screens are cheap and readily available. Most video editing programs, not to mention live streaming software like OBS and hardware like the Yolobox products, have native support built in. But it’s still something that many people struggle with when it comes to video editing with bad keys, dodgy artifacts and other issues.

Many people blame the software tools for a bad key, but is it operator error? Well, yes, it probably is. There are many factors involved in capturing good green screen footage and in this video the team at Syrp Lab walks through the process and explains exactly what could be causing your green screen issues and how to solve them.

While this video might bring some news that you might want to hear, and there might be some basic issues with your camera that you can’t solve without buying a new one, the video has a lot of great tips on how to get your green screen footage right lighting and framing to get a reliable key and how to avoid some of the common mishaps. The problem is that chroma keying, whether with a green screen or any other color, has many potential sources of error in the creation process. Everyone must come together to achieve a good end result.

I’ve been guilty of some of the things highlighted in the video myself in the past when it comes to green screen, but once you’ve made these mistakes it’s pretty easy to learn how to overcome them. It gets difficult to spot these problems and remember the solutions from one shoot to the next – and that’s where this video comes in. But if you end up doing a lot of green screen, you’ll really pick up the good habits. Once you figure them out, you’ll quickly remember them for the future!
