Is there a program to do a green screen effect without a green screen?

I want to do green screen effects with a picture, but run into problems since I don't have a green screen. I have seen the XBOX 360 game "You're in the movies" which does this by taking a picture of the background to be keyed out without anybody there. So, as my question states, I want to find a program to do this effect.

how does a green screen work? Why is it green? Answered

Like the weather-guy uses, the backround of the set is green so that they can use a computer to show images on the screen. Does the backround have to be green? Why green? It does not seem like a special color, i would think maybe white, red or blue?

How do I make a Swivel Green Screen Camera Setup?

I am a filmmaker and one of the things I adore is special effects.  One of things I want to do is make a simple effect in which I use a real physical model of a vehicle and I put it in front of a green screen.  However give it the illusion that a camera is panning around the whole thing while it's driving through whatever background I put in place of the green screen.  The way I want to do this is to make a swivel which on one end has a small green screen rigged on one end of the swivel and on the other end of it, a camera that is lined up with it. So that when I turn the swivel the camera would always follow the green screen. So that when I edit it in effects it would look as if whatever is in front of the green screen is traveling along an endless background while the camera is panning around the object.

LED 'screen' that will toggle between two images for cheap? Answered

I'm looking to make a prop soon that is basically a backpack with a small screen on it. Said screen alters between two states: green with a smiley face, or red with a rather angry looking face. I am looking to make it so I can alter said screen between the two states, for as cheap as possible. My first thought was to have three pieces of plexi: one with the smile, one with the angry face, and one blank, putting the blank one in the middle. Then, light the edges of the other two with the corresponding colors. However, I don't know how well that would work, or if there is a better option.  Thanks in advance!

Less then 2 yr old flat screen - has died....I believe...

My 17" Gateway flatscreen went blank this morning while I was at meeting. My wife claims she didn't do anything.....that it was blank when she saw it. It was not in sleep mode, nor was a screen saver on. I noticed the "power button" which is normally green (power up, with computer signal) or amber (powered up w/out signal), would not come on. I attempted to see if any of the adjustments on the side might have been bumped, no effect. I tested to make sure there was power from the surge protector (switched power outlets after a shut down) to no avail. After my 4th reboot, I subbed in my old monster sized 17" CRT tube monitor, and it works fine. Resolution is different, but it works.....but that pushed the monitor about 2 feet closer to my nose then I would like (it is about 10 inches from my face. )Did I miss anything as far as testing the monitor before replacing it? I personally think the PSU in the monitor went on the fritz, but I am open to suggestions. EDIT: The old CRT is now back ni it's storage area, and the newest LCD screen is up and running.

DS Lite - Both Screens light up, but no other prompts, some minimal lines across them?

I have a nintendo DS lite it powers on and both screens have light, but nothing shows up on them initially.  Within seconds lines appear across the screen...black on top, colored on the bottom.  The light turns from red to green.  I do not know if I need to replace the screens or if it's another issue.  I have replaced screens before in two other DS lites...I just don't want to invest if that's not the issue. Thanks for any help. I have removed and re-inserted the battery. Pictures attached.

Help with Arduino code. Works fine, then ignores parts of the code.

Alright, a bit of a complicated question, so bear with me (if you dare) __Purpose of project:__ Build a robot that solves the game "Fastest King" as fast as possible http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwGBUKCoIBs Here is a video of the game being played. The object is to clear the descending squares as fast as humanly (or robotically, in this case) possible. __Method of attack:__ -Four servos with attachments that allow interface with capacitve touch screens are positioned above each button -Four Photoresistors detect when a square is in the bottom position, ready to be pressed. -Potentiometer to control the speed of the arms and how fast they return to the "unpressed" position (denoted in the code by "d" or the delay in between the servo write commands) -On off switch, of course -All I/O is controlled by an arduino nano 328 IMAGES http://imgur.com/a/EprMu apologies for the terrible image quality, can update with better ones if necessary. (seems simple enough, right?) __Description of problem:__ Everything works swimmingly, except the game doesn't "remove" the square as soon as the correct button is pressed. this causes, when "d" is sufficiently low (100-75ms), the servos to press more than once for each square, causing mistakes within the game, slowing the overall time down. __Attempted fix:__ I attempted to implement some code that would cause each if statement checking for the square to also check that it hadn't pressed earlier within a certain time "doubletapdelay" effectively adding a delay in between doubletaps but leaving the rest of the servos free to activate. the odd thing is, the code i put in, (visible below, relevant parts bolded and commented) works well, but sometimes is completely ignored. even with the doubletap delay at 1000 ms while testing it, it would occasionally run as if it wasn't checking for double taps at all. If you think you can help out, or have a better idea for a way to do anything in this project, feel free to let me know. also, i can post any information you would like about this such as additional pictures or video, (though video is a bit difficult since my phone is inside of the machine whilst operating.

XBOX 360 Slim red dot with E82 error on screen?

Extreme Art in Cabral´s forest park: Rock Music video "A"

Extreme Art to save one of the best forest parks (Cabral’s forest park), in the city of Vigo, in Galicia -Spain-: Rock music video "A" (BEN SENMEDO). We made it also with free software (Kdenlive - Manjaro, end format WebM, audio Ogg) and the song is in Gallego, a language that we speak in the NorthWest of Spain. Actually, the place chosen to make the videoclip, known as "Monte de Cabral" or "Cotogrande", has serious risks of being destroyed, because of the complicity of the mayor of the city, Abel Caballero, with the Britsh corporation Eurofund. The mayor and the corporation want to convert the forest park into a commercial macroproject that they try to call "Porto Cabral". With this video, we hope anyone can enjoy the forest park forever: Letter of "A" in English: In this black horse I'm going to walk between the rain, they fall disks and seas cry out victory. I listen to the ripple of the good souls still death, for me it will never be late, when the fight will be good. I rush forth at the bad management of the power, I leave the jewels, I choose only the pieces of chess. One night, any day, waiting. One night, any day, waiting. People are not silly sheeps, we mount horses, we take the bridles. The souls without fear ever win the larvas, I don't tremble with idiots, you will never see flights.

Nintendo DS Lite Not Working

So, I have had my Nintendo DS Lite for a few years and used to play it a lot until 2011-2012. I finally decided to start playing it again a few days ago when it stopped working. I know it isn't dead because I charged it completely before trying to use it. When I turn it on, the green light turns on but the screen remains black. Also, the screen has turned on once or twice but it's currently not working.

RGB LED Sun and Moon

So, I'm working on this thing, its just an idea right now so I won't delve into it too deep, but I want to use a single RGB LED behind a frosted plexi screen as a Sun and another as a Moon, that will move on a clock motor. Could I get a white with a yellow tinge and a white with a blue tinge with a RGB and a few fixed resistors? I'm just wondering if that would be possible. Would I just set the red and green components to 70% and the blue to 100% for the moon and the red and green at 100% and blue at 70% for the sun? Thanks for the help. I don't have any RGBs so I'm just trying to theorize right now.

Is this a novel idea and or exists already? Answered

I'v been creating this idea in my head of a led back light that changes color based on the color of your monitor. Using sets of Red Green and Blue leds to create all the color combos, it would find an "average" color of your screen. Essentially including your peripheral vision in your games/movies.  Im curious if this is already exists in some form i could purchase or if it is something I would have to build (any suggestions)?

PSP Fix, Need Help

Hello all! I recently aquired a broken PSP 1000 as sort of a challenge to myself. Now however, I actually want it to work. I need some help with the fix, so here are the problems I have been able to identify: -PSP won't always charge, I strongly believe it is the battery though. When I tilt the PSP around at different angles, it will charge. Also, fiddling with the battery makes it charge. -PSP won't tun on. I have checked the power fuse, and it was burned out. I placed a jumper across it like so many internet guides say, and it now has continuity. When I hold the power switch, the PSP will do one of two things:                                  1. The light will turn off, and then turn back to solid orange (charging)                                  2. The light will turn green for about 0.5 to 1 second, and then turn off -PSP will make a rythmic clicking when not charging, doesn't seem to be a problem though. -Battery is cracked, and I don't know if it works properly because it won't maintain proper contact with the PSP. I have also checked the backlight and USB fuses, they both have continuity  so I'm not worried about fixing them. Right now I would just like it to turn on. If anyone knows anything, please make a comment, perhaps someone else has this problem. P.S.  What is a pandora battery? I keep hearing about those, what do they do? Also, what exactly signifies a "bricked" PSP? Thanks UPDATE: 11/08/2009 I had a friend test the battery, he said the battery works and he charged it for me.  Now the PSP turns on. But, (there's always a but) there is no activity on the LCD. I tried bridging the backlight fuse with tweezers to see if the fuse was the problem, no luck. So what now? All I have learned is that the charge circuit doesn't work and that the PSP turns on with no activity. I held a white LED flashlight up to the screen, but I didn't see anything. any suggestions?
