Excellent idea!  A cheap, easy way to see if you want to get into Chroma Key projects at the very least and also a cheap and easy way to take your CK backdrop where ever you need to go.

That actually made me laugh so much, I weed a little bit.

Nice, I've seen these in the store.. but never thought they could be used for chroma key. By the way... What software are you using?

Well, for this video I used After Effects, but you could use Sony Vegas, or iMovie.

you have some green spill around the edges try increasing the threshold and the blur amount

Yea, If it was for a personal project that had a lot of chroma keying, I would have done it better, but since the clip is only like 3 seconds I didn't make it perfect ;)

Quick, easy solution, and one of the better 30 second contest entries. However, for really high quality greenscreen you need to actually paint a wall, and better backlighting will help you get rid of the ghosting effect morareduard is talking about.

Thanks, I was aware of how to make a more professional green screen, but for this video I just wanted a way to make a green screen that was simple, and cheap.
