I am recording footage for my music video and I am using chroma keying for eliminating the green screen and changing the background of my video. I am using After Effects CC 14 video production/editing software. I don't have any third party plugin to remove the green screen background and so I am using Keylight 1.2. The steps that I am following for changing the background can be found in this tutorial.
My questions about the issues which I am getting here are as follows:
- The main problem I am getting here is that when I am removing the background using Keylight 1.2, I am getting white light borders on the body of the subject. These borders keep coming after the edit even while I am recording the footage from even different cameras.
- The second problem is, after creating the garbage matte and editing the clip at different levels as shown in the above-mentioned tutorial, some parts of the elbow of the subject/model are also becoming transparent. I cannot understand why.
- Which color will be the best for my subject/model to wear during the shoot, so that it does not reflect the green color and will have the least reflection.
- What will be some best camera settings for recording the footage in order to remove the green screen? My Camera is Nikon D5300 and the lens which I am using with it is 18-55MM.
As an example, you may get my test videos here.
