Best practice camera settings for Mark III Green screen shooting

HI

Hi all,

Based on your experience, what are the ideal camera settings for Green screen video with the Canon Mark III.

Iso?

Aperture?

Depth of field settings (best to have the green screen a bit out of focus?)

Any other camera settings would be helpful.

Thanks

You need to set lowest possible ISO for this since increasing it gives you more grain which is bad for greenscreening. And try to stand as far from green background as possible so you'll be able to blur background by adjusting AV.

Thanks. Have made note of the ISO settings. Any other settings on the camera that are important. (Canon Mark iii is what I use).

I know the importance of good even lighting, and standing away from the background.

What about depth of field? FOr example I read somewhere that keeping the green screen slightly out of focus can be helpful.

Any other thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks

Well, can't give exact values since all depends on lightning, distance, etc., but the point is that you need to keep background blurred as much as possible (out of focus like you wrote). The reason is simple: blurred objects have more steady colors and less noise (which affects badly on greenscreening), so by having even distribution of background color you'll be getting better results.
