Chroma Key Green Screens from Cheap as Prints
Chroma key green screens offer a quick and inexpensive way to create virtual backdrops in seconds. Green screens are great for creating YouTube videos and are popular amongst videographers, social media influencers, and games for their live streams. The versatility of these screens makes them great for working from home. You can create portable Chroma green screens to work along with your video conferencing software for a professional backdrop.
The primary reason for using a specific shade of green (known as “Chroma key green”) is that it is not a colour typically found in human skin tones or most objects, making it easier to distinguish and remove during post-production. When shooting a video or taking photos with a green screen background, the subject (actor or object) is placed in front of the green screen. The green background serves as a backdrop for the intended special effects or composited elements.
In post-production, video or photo editing software (commonly Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, or Adobe Photoshop) is used to remove the green background and replace it with another image or video footage. This process is called “keying.” Keying involves selecting a specific colour (in this case, green) and making it transparent in the final composition. This allows you to overlay the subject onto a different background or combine it with other visual elements seamlessly.
Chroma keying opens up a wide range of creative possibilities. You can place actors in fantastical environments, create special effects, transport them to different locations, or even create virtual sets for news broadcasts and video presentations. Proper lighting is crucial when working with green screens. Well-controlled lighting helps create a clean, uniform background that is easier to key out during post-production.

In general, Chroma key green screens are a tool used in video and photography production to create special effects or composite multiple images or video streams together. It involves using a specific colour, usually a bright shade of green, as a background that can be easily removed or replaced in post-production using digital editing software.
Each portable screen is printed onto a premium-grade anti-scratch media and secured in place with a sturdy aluminium base. Additionally, the media has a grey backing ensuring no show-through or unwanted shadows on the screen. When you want to use the display, simply pull the screen out of the base and attach it to the stabilising pole. Whilst it is a portable solution, the sturdy twin-foot base means it can be used as a permanent fixture. For storage and transport, all our green screens are supplied with a light carry bag.

What is a chroma key green screen?
A chroma key green screen is a backdrop, typically green in color, used in video and photography production. The green color is chosen because it is easily distinguishable and can be replaced with other backgrounds or visuals during post-production using chroma-keying techniques.
How does chroma keying work with a green screen?
Chroma keying involves isolating a specific color (in this case, green) and making it transparent, allowing another background to show through. In video editing software, the green color is replaced with a different image or video.
Why is green used as the primary color for chroma keying?
Green is commonly used for chroma keying because it is less likely to conflict with human skin tones and clothing colors. It provides a high level of contrast, making it easier to isolate and remove during post-production.
What size green screen do I need for video production?
The size of the green screen depends on the space and the framing of your shots. For individual subjects, a smaller screen may suffice, while larger screens are needed for full-body shots or group scenes.
Can I use a different color for chroma keying?
While green is the most commonly used color, blue screens are also popular in chroma keying. The choice between green and blue often depends on the colors present in the subjects or the scene being filmed.
Do I need special lighting for a chroma key setup?
Proper lighting is crucial for a successful chroma key setup. Even and consistent lighting on the green screen helps ensure a clean key during post-production. Avoid shadows and hotspots to achieve the best results.
What software can I use for chroma keying?
Various video editing software supports chroma keying, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and OBS Studio for live streaming. These programs allow you to replace the green background with other visuals or videos.
Are there any tips for achieving a clean chroma key effect?
Ensure even lighting on the green screen, avoid shadows and wrinkles, and place the subject at an optimal distance from the screen. Additionally, using a high-quality camera and shooting at a higher resolution can contribute to a cleaner chroma key effect.
How do I assemble the chroma key green screen?
The chroma key green screen is just like regular roller banners with a spring mechanism. The graphics can be very easily pulled up or down as required. The supporting pole fits into the back of the mechanism to keep the banner sturdy when erect.
