I have been working with some green screen footage and I am wondering if there is a way to make the subject look as though they are in infinite white space. I can key out the green and add a white solid, but I am wondering if this is the best way to do it. Would you be able to do something like this with selective color? If so, how?

It seems to me that the easiest way to do it is to key out the green screen and replace with white... why would you need a different way of doing it?

i suppose you could try the change color to color effect. it's pretty simple to use, but i don't think you'll get as good of results as keying them out.

I guess I am just curious as to whether or not you can get close to the same effect with selective color. Would selective color even be able to turn all the green to white?

You will also likely need to add some light wrap -- your talent may look unnatural in an infinite white space with no spill on them.
