Join Steve Wright for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with a real clean plate, part of VFX Keying: Master Course.
- [Narrator] There's definitely a remote possibility…that you'll be given an actual clean plate shot on set.…So in this video we'll see how it affects…the screen correction workflow.…You also may prefer to retain the original grain…from your green-screen or blue-screen,…and not use de-grained images for other…than pulling the key.…No problem.…We'll see how to do that, too.…First up, let's take a look at…a real clean plate.…Here is a little action sequence here.…And shot on set was an actual clean plate.…
The camera is locked off,…and they just roll film, or roll video, in this case.…And you get a perfect match…which is ideal for the screen correction process.…However, keep in mind,…since it's original footage,…it has to be de-grained as well.…So we do the de-graining for the original clip,…and we de-grain the clean plate.…Because these two plates need to be…as identical as possible,…with the only difference being the characters.…
We then do our soft key, as usual, for both of them.…Again the Constant plate, where we do the subtraction…
