I want to key better.

So I took a shot of my scopes with just two lights (kino flows 4 bank)...and here is the resulting scope. I figure if I add gels I can make it greener.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Right now I'm using keylight.

Here are my scopes.

Thanks in advance.

Also is it normal for it to be that noisy for the first scope? I had saturation turned on in the FC scope.

You should be able to pull a good key with either of those, IMO. In general having dedicated illumination for the green wall/fabric helps, as long as you're not overexposing. Higher-end keying facilities will use green lights on the wall (using gel might create a similar effect) which send some additional green light bouncing off the green surface.

Have you tried this with a person or object in front of it? That's really where the rubber meets the road, especially when you consider that you need to add lights for the subject, etc....

I do about 10 chromakey videos a month using this setup. It works good...but as I said I want to be better!
I had a spare gel lying around and saw the [G] (green) shoot way up on the scope....so I'm purchasing gels now. I just want to be able to have a better key.
