Green Screen Chroma Keying with the HD10U

Green screen leaves lots to be desired with this camera. Especially when your final output is HD. You can get away with a lot if your final output is NTSC which was the case for me on this project, thank God.

The chroma noise and MPEG compression, I beleive get in the way of good chroma keying.

Here's the final product which is the results of much tweeking and multiple masks in AE:

P.S. a good hair dresser would have also helped ;)

Paul,

You can see compression but the file are VERY small and clients really get the idea.

I find it to be a very good viewing codec.

Looks great to me, and at ~ 57 Megs a Minute you could fit around 12 minutes on a CD. I've used Windows Media 9 which gives a slightly smaller file size (I think). This look like a nice distribution solution for the Mac. There is also Divx, but the encoder expires, is this encoder free?

Free for now but they'll start charging in no time.
