What do I use as a green screen? fabric store & buy bright green cloth you can buy Yoostar off Ebay or Amazon tubetape.com to buy an expensive one
what do i use to take my video? If you have a mac, you can use the video of photobooth you can use a flip camera to take videos against the green screen then use effects in your movie software
why is my finished video or picture not coming out perfect? lighting is essential to the green screen effect .. if you have too many shadows, then you will have spots that still show up green.. if you want perfection you need to have a thicker screen and better lighting Distance is another factor. standing too close to the green screen produces shadows and can cause the screen to flutter.
I want to do green screening but how do i get started. the easiest is to do is “This day in History” history.com is a great resource for information discoveryeducation.com is a great resource for videos and information
note: students can do an oral report by recording it. For students who are nervous about being in front of the room.
