We have the canvas, and it works for some things that do not require a lot of space.  Now we have an entire little room, so we would like to use the whole space.  I've googled around a bit and a lot of people are saying you do not need to use the expensive Rosco green paint.  I'm curious if others have tried some of the generic paints out there.

The unique characteristic of chroma key green is that specific tone is rarely found in clothing and flesh tones; therefore it is easy to "key-out" the extreme-bright-lime-green with video editing software. A gallon of Rosco video chroma key green paint is around $80.

A slightly cheaper alternative to get started with chroma keying is to buy a large canvas of chroma key green fabric, but wrinkles create shadows that are difficult to key out. You could try taking the cloth to a paint store to see if they can custom mix a match, but I'm not sure it would work as well.

We are looking to turn a room into our green screen room and we would like to paint the walls instead of using the cloth as it provides more flexibility.  I know there is special green screen paint you can buy, but it's expensive, and so I am wondering if I could just use a basic flat finish latex paint in that color.  Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks!
