I have a couple of suggestions that could be of help: 1) Use a polarizer to reduce reflections. You say your boss won't spring for anything else, but you can pick one up fairly cheaply (like under $20 on amazon). If that's really not an option, you can try using some polarized sunglasses in front of the lens, at least to see if it eliminates the ...

You don't say what you're using to edit these videos, but there may be a better chromakey plugin for your platform than what comes natively. Also, again depending on your platform, most editors will allow you to crop the key area (garbage matte) so that the green screen doesn't have to cover the entire raster, just enough to back the product you're ...

Thanks for the other good answers. Here is what I ended up doing. I created a blank white html page and made it fullscreen, and then used f.lux to adjust the color temperature. It worked for me, but I should point out to anyone looking to use this solution in the future that it isn't perfect. F.lux doesn't give a very broad range of color temperatures. They ...

I would have just booted Linux, logged in remotely, and done DISPLAY=:0 xsetroot -solid '#fff' to set a solid white background, or any other color I wanted. And there's probably ...

Following example shows a realtime viewport animation of the color temperature in kelvin: Create some geometry (e.g. a plane) as light emitter Setup an Emission shader Create a Blackbody node and plug it into the Emission Color Position your camera Switch your Camera by ...

The biggest issue with having only one powerful light source for the whole hall might be the foreground being too bright and the fall-off to dark being to fast. You may compensate for this by placing the light way behind the camera, if this doesn't cast any camera/crew shadows inside the frame. This setup will give you a much smoother fall-off, but will also ...
