Preserving Green Color in front of Chroma Screen
on Jul 9, 2013 at 2:59:03 am

I'm novice and this is my first post here.

I would appreciate any advice.

I did a horrible thing. The only thing you shouldn't do in front of a green screen.

I brought green into frame. I thought that since it's technically surrounded by flesh colors and off-white in the mid-ground, I thought there might be some way.

Is there any way on God's green earth to preserve the green (via color changer, leave color, some sort of matte(?)--other than masking each blade of grass)

Many thanks to anyone who could offer advice.

Cheers,

Yunoo

Other than a reshoot?....

I'd try to do the reverse: key out the grass as good as you can without touching the background. Since the background isn't a uniform green, you might have to use masks to specify different keys to different regions of background. And after that: start choking and refining. I think i would use the color range-keyer...
