re:

Thanks Guy. I started trying each suggestion one at a time, so I could identify the problem (as opposed to just picking the solution and moving on). The culprit?

Reflecmedia intensity meter was set to 10 and when I brought it down to 7, the problem went away. No more yellow edges, and no more disappearing appendages in motion.

Much thanks.

chromatte and makeup

An earlier post in this thread said:

Is this true if only a small smudge gets on it? Or could you cover the smudge with chromatte tape?

In general, can anyone comment on the effectiveness of chromatte tape? Is it really completely seamless as far as the resulting green screen goes?

Does anyone have experience with joining two 8 x 8 screens together with tape to form one 16 x 8 screen?

For smudges, you can use chromatte tape to repair any areas that become non-reflective. We've rented out our curtains many times and have had great luck with the material holding up. To join two 8x8's, all you have to do is overlap, no need to tape them. Same with the basematte tile, just let it curve up from the ground. See the attachment photo for a "behind the scenes" shot. The resulting composited video can be seen here Manfrotto Monopod demo shot in front of Reflecmedia backdrop on Vimeo

Hope this helps,
