Green or Blue Screen – how to decide

Here’s the easiest demonstration of why a blue or green color maters. Most of the time a green screen is used – it normally works best with current day digital sensors. But the color of what the subject is what determines what color – blue screen or green screen you should choose. Here’s a video clip of a weather reporter who has a dress with some green on it – and she’s talking in front of green screen. Look at how parts of her dress disappear and are replaced by the background. So if your subject is wearing green – use a blue screen! If your subject is wearing blue – use a green screen! Unless of course you are looking to make special effects (like an invisible man movie) where your subject disappears into the background. This video is the best way to demonstrate what can happen!
