Greenscreen is tricky
so I needed to do something I thought would be pretty simple. I wanted a playmobil figure shot against a greenscreen that I could key in Hitfilm.
I placed my green screen down, lit the green screen, then lit the subject. Took my picture (yes not movie just picture)
Brought into Hitfilm Pro and used the Chroma Key.
My results where not great. I found that my result was rather washed out, if my figure had any colour that was even close to green (yellow) it would wash out.
Chroma Key applied
Result using Retain Mask method (basically I feel I ended up rotoscoping the image.
Looking at the first image I can see now, it is not looking very green, maybe my lights are affecting it?
Ideas, tips, great vids (I have watched the FXhome ones), HELP!!! I want to suss this. I thought there was some method to enhance the green?
