The Benefits of Using Green Screen Video Backgrounds

Digital video production has exploded in recent years, with the ubiquity of smartphones and social media driving the medium to new heights. However, there are some roadblocks within green screen video production that can make things difficult for any video creator; namely, the inability to reuse a single background without it looking cheap and obvious. Thankfully, there are solutions to this problem. Green screen videos use a specific type of imaging technique to capture footage with actors against a static background. The primary benefit is that you can use almost any kind of background as long as you have access to a green screen somewhere else. This article will go over the benefits of using green screen video backgrounds for your next project.

The Pros of Using a Green Screen for Video Backgrounds
Green screens are the best option when you want to swap out the background in your video. If you want to film outside, but your viewers are in offices, green screens are perfect. If you want to film at an event, but not be present, green screens work there as well. The big advantage of green screen over other types of video backgrounds is that you can pick whatever background you want. You can have your actors stand outside while the viewers will see a clear sky above them. This is especially useful for businesses that want to show off their products and want the best advertisement possible. Another advantage of green screens is that you can take your video and repurpose it for other uses. You can make it shorter, longer or change the audio track to fit a different purpose. You can also add in additional footage to make a very long video for a single presentation.

Use Your Imagination
The best part about using a green screen for video is that you don’t have to limit your creativity to your surroundings. You can use the endless options in your head to create wish-fulfillment scenarios that can’t be done in the real world. From flying in space to skydiving to surfing the solar winds, there are very few things you can’t accomplish with a green screen. If you’re making a corporate video, you can make the office look like your employees are in a tropical resort. If your company is going through restructuring, you can make it appear as though employees are sitting around a campfire in their pajamas.

Reduce Costs
Green screens are a notable exception to the rule that real backgrounds are always better than fake ones. With clever editing, you can make a cheap, static background look like anything from the surface of the moon to an underwater coral reef. Most video production companies specialize in this type of video production and can produce a high-quality video for a fraction of the cost because they don’t have to hire a specialized team and don’t need to rent out expensive spaces that can be difficult to find. If you’re producing a video for your business that is going to be viewed online, you don’t need to spend a lot of money on a realistic background. A fake background is much cheaper and can be changed with each video if you want.

How to Achieve Great Green Screen Effects
There are a few things you need to keep in mind when setting up a green screen and filming the actor in the frame. First, you need to be mindful of the lighting in the room and on the actor so they don’t look green on camera. You also need to make sure the green screen is lit well enough to show up on camera. If you’re filming outside and don’t have access to a green screen, you can still get some of the benefits of green screen video production by using a blue screen instead. The main difference is that a blue screen is easier to see on camera, so your video won’t look as seamless.

Green screens are a great alternative to filming outside or using a static background in your videos. They allow you to use any background you want, making the sky the limit on creative backgrounds. You can also use a blue screen to achieve a similar look if you don’t have access to a green screen. With these benefits, it’s clear that a green screen has a lot to offer in video production.
