Precision in Color

The DigiComp HD color standards are precisely manufactured for crisp, clean separation of the foreground/background in digital compositing – resulting in little or no post-production "touch-up" needed. Rosco DigiComp HD paints are specially formulated to provide the proper luminance and RGB values for optimum operation of all digital compositing systems. The precise formulation of the single-source pigments found in DigiComp HD paints produces a highly-specific spectral reflectance and high-gain reflectivity, which results in a bright, narrow bandwidth of green or blue that make it both simple to light and easy to key. DigiComp HD saves productions valuable post-production time because Visual Effects technicians spend less time rotoscoping and manipulating a dirty key caused by the spectral interference found in other generic or paint-store mixed formulations.

Easy Application

Rosco’s DigiComp HD formulations are ready for use straight out of the can and provide even coverage in two, easy-to-apply coats. DigiComp HD is intended for use on most porous surfaces, including: wood, wallboard, sheetrock, plaster and concrete. It is always recommended to properly clean, prime and prepare your surface before applying the DigiComp HD paints. Unprimed surfaces may result in uneven color-coverage. DigiComp HD paints can be applied using 3/8” nap roller or a spray gun. For full application instructions, please see our How To Paint Your Wall/Cyc with DigiComp HD document, or watch the video.

Ultra-Flat Finish

All of Rosco’s keying paints, including DigiComp HD, are manufactured to have an ultra-flat finish, which means there is no sheen or gloss in the finish at all. It’s worth noting that the “flat” finishes available from paint or hardware stores will have some sheen to them when lit for camera – Rosco keying paints will not. This is important because any sheen/gloss in a green screen will appear as white or yellow on camera – not green – and may spoil your key.

Choosing the Proper Color

DigiComp HD is available in both Green and Blue. Most experts say that if you’re shooting on film – use blue screen because the blue layer of the film emulsion is more sensitive. If you’re shooting digital/HD – use green screen because the chips in most digital/HD cameras are more sensitive to green. However, the subject matter you’re shooting also needs to be considered. Avoid matching the background with the major elements in the foreground. For example, a green screen would be a better choice if the selected set pieces or costumes (such as a blue super-hero suit) contained a lot of blue in them - no matter what medium you’re shooting on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well. Fast delivery. This is the only green screen paint I've used so I don't have anything to compare it to. I was using the paint in a micro-studio for video recording instructional videos. The wall was MDF with two coats of primer. The green screen paint needed three coats in my application. I found that when I put it on in thick coats that there was more colour variation - darker areas where the roller overlapped. I did a final coat with a very light application and it really evened it out. The final effect is excellent. None of the imperfections in the wall are visible in the video, although I'm using a limited depth of field on the camera.

Tips: Make sure you have the paint professionally shaken a day before use, prime the wall well first, apply in thin coats and you should get a great outcome. Set up your lights to give even lighting across the green screen or you may find noise in your videos. Keep your talent a couple of meters away from the wall if possible to get better separation and to reduce green light being cast on your talent. Start by lighting your talent and when that is set up with the proper exposure turn on your green screen lights and adjust the intensity and the settings in your software to get the best chroma key removal effect. I'm using led lights with a 5600k temperature on the green screen. I'm using OBS software (free) which has a highly configurable chroma key filter effect where you can adjust all of similarity, softness and green colour spill settings to optimise the look.

Good luck with your project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Green Screen Paint It needs a few coats, but it works really well even in dull light.
