Good fun for digital amateurs, especially the kids
“This software package and the 5′x7′ green chromakey screen can introduce your family to the magic of digital photography and manipulation of images. Most kids may not realize that those exciting scenes in science fiction films and television are filmed against a blue or green screen and then are manipulated to put a different background image behind the actor or subject. Learning the “guts” of how special effects are done makes for a really excellent home schooling project, and digital photography is one of the best hobbies for kids these days, as the struggles with chemicals, darkrooms and developing has been eliminated by digital darkrooms on PC.” – By Joanna Daneman
Worked surprising well, software can be used for pictures not video however
“Initially, I thought that the software would allow you to process video against a green screen, but it turns out that the included software edits photos only. That being said, I put up the green screen (without ironing first) for a quick test, snapped a couple of pictures and was really impressed at how the software removed out the green. It was a pretty clean edit. “ – By Wade W
“I purchased this product to use for fun and for work. The green screen concept isn’t new – but it was to me. The software is simple to use and the ease of inserting the backgrounds is just as easy. I used the included green screen to take with us on our last camping trip and it worked out great! My only recommendation to folks who buy this product is that you need to buy the upgrade version right off the bat. The upgrade version has more backgrounds, more tools, etc.” – By S. Hillmann
fun! fun! fun
“My husband and I enjoy taking pictures and this seemed like a fun thing to try. The kit includes a machine washable green fabric screen 5′x7′ and software that gives you 100 digital backgrounds to choose from, from holiday, sports-oriented, landmarks, nature, etc. The software was easy to install and had a nice tutorial that showed you every step. So, here’s what we did….we hung our screen, grabbed our cat and stuck her in front of it and took a picture. We brought that up on our software and chose a background that we liked. We chose a barn with grass in front. You can play with the color, make it black and white, etc. Very cool.” – By Colleen M. Schneider
Transport yourself to another Galaxy or TIme… While staying at home
“First off, it’s not 5×7 inches, it’s 5×7 FEET. Second, the standard “lite” software is pretty much garbage. It works, and it does a FANTASTIC job, but they really push wanting you to get the “full version”. Which might not be a bad idea… I used this to shoot some videos for a client of mine, I did some using the software, but mostly I just used the green screen and recorded the videos using my hd canon camera and used other software for editing the green screen image out. Over all it’s pretty nice. “ – By Jason
