Shooting green / blue screen with the Sony FS700
on Apr 25, 2014 at 3:21:18 pm

Using my FS700 for a green screen shoot. Shooting a full body shot of a wispy light brown Golden Retriever, so concerned about pulling a good key. Don't have a 4k recorder so will be transcoding the AVC files to Pro Res 422. Will be shot in a well-lit studio.

Any insight on the following would be
- best Picture profile settings
- will it make matters worse if I shoot at 60 or 120 frames
- Better to paint the cyc blue?
- any other lighting tips. Worried about spill from the floor onto the dog's wispy underbelly that is close to the floor.

thx
scott

I wouldn´t risk to rely on the AVCHD-Codec for this kind of job, since it´s only 8bit 4:2:0 sampling.
Better rent a Samurai, then you will get ProRes with 4:2:2 Color-Sampling.

Hi Eric,

What about shooting Green/Blue Screen using the Sony FS700 and recording onto the Odyssey 7Q in 2K Raw....? I believe that uses a different codec with much better color sampling.
