Original Raw Shot
Green Screen Removed, Background Replaced, Color Correction Done.
I have had numerous questions about green screen (chroma keying) and color correction. Most of them are from novice or non-filmmakers asking “What is this green screen thing?” and “What is color correction for in a movie?”
After looking for the best answer to this, I found the two pictures above the best visual explanation of what this is.
The first picture shows the original shot, in the raw, against a green screen.
The second picture shows the end result of removing the green screen, putting in a background, then correcting the color so the shot looks a LOT better.
Obviously, in a movie, this happens with moving pictures, but the effect is the same as above.
I’ll be doing an entire video series on this later, but I wanted to answer the question.
