    Hi guys, I'm suffering with Greenscreen already several months. So I would appreciate any recommendations.
    As you can see on the right side there is a spill on the head and arm.
    My setup:
    - 2 daylight bulbs (45 W CFL-Daylight) with umbrellas for subject 45 degree left and right.
    - I also tried with and without 2 softboxes (45w CLF-Daylight) to light greenscreen. From what I see the greenscreen is not perfectly lit.
    - Greenscreen is 2 meters behind the subject
    - I key it in Final cut pro
    - My camera is Sony 5100 f1.4, iso 100, 25 fps, shutter 1/50, 1080p

    The main problem is that I don't know what I need to adjust. Is it the greenscreen than should be lit better or something else? Do I need more light or should it be dimmable?

    I thought to buy 2-3 cheap lamps with diffuser to light greenscreen on the bottom.

    I'm open for any suggestions. Thanks for your time.

  2. Based on the images you've posted, yes more light would be better -- but that does not appear to be the main issue.
    You've got a decent key and just need to refine the edges with the advanced matte tools available in fcpx.

    Thanks smrpix. I thought it's possible to make key/light so good that matte/remove spill is not needed as with this tools the image looks not that good.

  4. It's never going to be automatic. But once you find good settings you can copy them from one clip to another.

    Thanks a lot smrpix. It's really nice to get a feedback from the side because it's difficult to be realistic when I see my image for the 1000 time
