Custom Preset for Chroma Keying?
I'm sure one of you gurus have a favorite setup for chroma keying blue or green screen. I would appreciate a few tips.

Hi Alex,

I always use the Panlook2 preset for my chromakey. Never had any problems with it.
I am sure as you are aware is not which preset you use is how weel you llight up your set.
Good lighting is everything.

no preset in the world will help you with Chroma Keying if your lighting is bad. In fact unless there is a certain look you're going for then I'm not sure why you would even use a preset for keying. With a good well lit green/blue screen even setting the camera to auto will work like a champ;)

I wouldn't recommend setting the camera to auto for chromakey work. Shifts in exposure due to auto exposure will not help the keying process much, and changes in WB due to AWB will definitely cause keying problems.
