The technology that’s replacing the green screen

Film dhe animacion

The green screen is a Hollywood staple. Should it be?
It’s easy to complain about overreliance on special effects, but for projects that require impossible-to-film environments or have incredibly expensive shots, how do you get the flexibility of green screens without the drawbacks?
Charmaine Chan has worked on one of the possible answers. Vox's Phil Edwards spoke to her about her career and how it's at the forefront of a big technological shift. As a compositor for venerable effects house Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), she’s worked on films like The Last Jedi, assembling various digital elements into a beautiful, seamless image. Her job changed on The Mandalorian, one of the first shows to use ILM’s upgrade for the green screen: LED panels that used video game engine technology to place a realistic-looking world behind the actors.
It was a huge improvement, because green screens actually have a lot of drawbacks. Removing the green screen is never as quick as visual effects artists would hope. It also casts green light upon the set and actors. Even substitutes for a green screen, like projecting an image onto a screen behind the actor, fail to dynamically respond to camera movements the way they would in the real world.
ILM’s solution fixes a lot of those problems, and it also led to creative breakthroughs in which the old Hollywood order of a TV show or movie, in which VFX came last, was suddenly reversed. Now, artists like Charmaine are alongside actors, set designers, and other crew members during filming. That collaboration means that this technology doesn’t just eliminate a screen - it eliminates a creative barrier.

    AS A DEMOCRAT, FOR JOE BIDEN I FILLED OUT 4 BALLOTS FOR 4 DIFFERENT STATES. THEY WERE ALL TRACKED AND ALL GOT CHECKED AND USED TO VOTE FOR BIDEN. I WAS TOLD TO DO THIS BY PEOPLE ON THE PHONE FOR JOE BIDEN. SO I TRIED IT OUT AND IT WORKED. I KNOW IM NOT THE ONLY ONE BECAUSE I WAS TOLD TO SHARE THIS AND THAT NOONE WOULD GET CAUGHT. IT TOTALLY WORKED. CNN HAS OUR BACKS AND WILL COVER UP THE FRAUD TOO. SO THATS WHY WE CAN GET AWAY WITH IT AS DEMOCRATS. JOE BIDEO WILL WIN AT ALL COST.

    The question I wanted to ask was if the parallax changes,, in response to camera moves, made it nauseating for the actors on the set (weird combinations of items on the screen behind them would shift, causing potential motion sickness)?

    I can put a green screen in any room I need. I can travel with it. I can roll it up and stash it behind the couch when it's not being used. I can put one together for dollars, it does not cost 10's or 100's of 1,000's of dollars. I'll stick w/ green screen until the "volume" prices come down. And even then, I won't use it for camera work, I'll use it for video games. Long live Skyrim.

    ...The Mandalorian still also utilizes green screen. I think green screen will always have a place because of the amount of control it gives. Some shots still need post-production beyond just replacing the background. Don't get me wrong, I think these tools are absolutely amazing and will continue open up great new possibilities for film and video, but for anyone who doesn't have hundreds of thousands of dollars for these LED walls, shooting like The Mandalorian will not be realistic for some time. The green screen is still a great tool, it's all about the end product.

    Green Screen is super tricky. If it is not a hard color & soft shadow, expect to see some strangeness. You need a sweet spot, and the cameras had better be high precision & definition. Chroma Key is unforgiving because it can't fully determine all the small pixels nor is it smart enough to read our minds.
