The technology that’s replacing the green screen technology green screen

by susquehanNAva



The green screen is a Hollywood staple. Should it be?

It’s easy to complain about overreliance on special effects, but for projects that require impossible-to-film environments or have incredibly expensive shots, how do you get the flexibility of green screens without the drawbacks?

Charmaine Chan has worked on one of the possible answers. Vox’s Phil Edwards spoke to her about her career and how it’s at the forefront of a big technological shift. As a compositor for venerable effects house Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), she’s worked on films like The Last Jedi, assembling various digital elements into a beautiful, seamless image. Her job changed on The Mandalorian, one of the first shows to use ILM’s upgrade for the green screen: LED panels that used video game engine technology to place a realistic-looking world behind the actors.

It was a huge improvement, because green screens actually have a lot of drawbacks. Removing the green screen is never as quick as visual effects artists would hope. It also casts green light upon the set and actors. Even substitutes for a green screen, like projecting an image onto a screen behind the actor, fail to dynamically respond to camera movements the way they would in the real world.

ILM’s solution fixes a lot of those problems, and it also led to creative breakthroughs in which the old Hollywood order of a TV show or movie, in which VFX came last, was suddenly reversed. Now, artists like Charmaine are alongside actors, set designers, and other crew members during filming. That collaboration means that this technology doesn’t just eliminate a screen — it eliminates a creative barrier.

Watch the above video to see how it happens.

this is such a good video explaining the new tech they used for filming Mandalorian. Star Wars franchise from the first movie in 1977 to 2021, still is the frontier in filming technology. That's one of the reasons I love it so much. I'm glad even though Lucas is not there this tradition still continues with the franchise.

30 years ago Star Trek The Next Generation introduced most of us to the idea of a holodeck. Now, rudimentary holodecks exist and are being used to create the NEXT GENERATION of great Sci-Fi. Well done!

In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God, the same was in the beginning with God. And the word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotton of the father. Full of grace and truth. This is Jesus Christ the son of God and the word of God. The word of God is living and active sharper than any two edged sword. Jesus Christ is the living word of God. "They word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. The goodnews is how that according to the scriptures Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead for our justification. All who believe that Jesus died for them and that Jesus is the son of God have everlasting life. Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world but that the world might have life through his name. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. God gives eternal life and only God can give it and it is through faith in his son Jesus Christ. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. And there is none righteous no not one. But Jesus Christ the righteous one came in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin condemned sin in the flesh. He did this to bring you to God. He loves you.

The background needs the match the perspective of the camera. This is really cool technology.
