Introduction to Green Screening
We were given an overview of green screening - its purposes, used in the film industry and the equipment needed to produce high quality green screen footage.
The lesson also involved an introduction to working with chromakey tools which are used for keying out the background colour in order to allow the footage to be composite onto another background.
We also viewed footage from some well known films that highlighted where green screening was used in order to create various visual effects! I think that it is taken for granted just how much green screen is used in the film industry, simply because the outcomes are that realistic that you would never know it has been used!
