Tips for shooting green screen?

What's the ideal way to get the best key from your FS700? Which picture profile would you advise?

I second that question. I have a green screen shoot coming up. My first with the FS 700. And I'd be interested in any thoughts as well.

Great, Thanks.

Okay, I'm back. I joined and read. Lots of interesting things on the Facebook site. I saw one green screen discussion about white on the shoulders of a presenter, but nothing about best settings for shooting green screen in the camera.

Re: Tips for shooting green screen?

The 700 will work fine with chroma keying. I use the PP that gives me the best overall picture, with nice skin tones.

Pulling good keys easily. Is a matter of lighting well. Use a large space if possible so your talent is far in front of the screen, to minimize spill. If you dont have a big space use -green or -blue gels on side lights on the talent, this helps a lot.

Also using black flats on the side, floor and above the screen will minimize the spill as well

If you can record 422 color space, using a NanoFlash (or other 422 recorder) or directly into your NLE. This helps a lot as well, more color info, so it is much easier to key.

Run some tests before the actual shoot. It really is all about lighting.
