Hi All,

I'm planning a shoot and one of the things we need is different pieces of jewelry keyed out from the background.

The initial idea is to shoot against a green screen, but the complication is that most of the pieces contain green/blue and also use a glossy paint.

As such I'm a little concerned that shooting in front of a green screen or blue screen will still require heavy rotoscoping.

I think the shoot would involve the pieces on a green surface, lazy susan and maybe also rig a couple pieces up on wire. It's definitely still in the concept phase so I'm open to suggestions.

Any production help much appreciated.

If there isn't a lot of movement in the shot, you may be able to get away with using Rotobrush. Then you don't have to worry about green spill and green reflections in the shiny stuff.

Can't offer better than that without a more detailed description of the shot.
