Re: green screen

It will be, I one used a steamer, another time just a water boiler to get the creases out.

Just be careful, boiling water and all.

Re: green screen

Do you have to get the crease out for a good video image on screen flow or it doesn’t matter ?

Re: green screen

Hi @mariapellicano1 you will see any major creases. Minor one will show up as colour variants in the background, this makes editing tough. Make sure you stand about a metre away and set your lighting. Spending the time setting up it worth it. @GregReverdiau has an excellent post on Green Screens. Sadly my tech tech skills are not up to finding it for you!

Re: green screen

You can also stretch it to get rid of the creases.  Lighting is far more important in my opinion than a few creases.

Re: green screen

Hey!

It's completely normal for your green screen to arrive like this. There is no way they can ship it being folder only once. 

I have never ironed or steamed my green screens. You just need to:

- stretch it. Put something at the bottom that stretches it 

- light it up. And I don't mean fire Smiley Wink put as much light as you can on it 

- stand away from it. Don't get too close. About a meter is fine 

- when in post, find the darkest mark when using the ultra key 

 

That should do it Smiley Wink

Re: green screen

I tried ironing with a towl on top and steeming, but no luck, I went on to make a wooden frame and stretched the green screen to wraped it and stappled it tight, i had not one crease this method and when I filmed it was perfect when i changed the background display through imovie.

They are a pain but a little work and they are good to go.

Throw it in the dryer...that's always worked for me.
