You've a brilliant point about the screen lighting, as well. I'll need keep a close eye on that detail.

Thanks!

Talking from my masking hair experience...the hair gets a green cast on the ends and doesn't work. If you are talking about solid objects it doesn't matter but whispy hair is another game. If someone has a fix I could you please post because people keep sending me green screen pics and what normally takes a couple of minutes takes much longer.

Whoa, you're correct, aren't you, about the green cast to the hair wisps!

Would white work any better do you think?

If you use white with a person, then the white part of the eyes and some of the teeth will go away with the background!

What are you pasting your extracted image onto? That will make a difference.

Also it sounds like maybe the shooters are not doing it quite right. One needs to have that hair a good distance from the green background (like 6 feet or more). Also the background cannot be to bright (or too dark) and of course has to be even.
