The Blue and Green Screen Store

I've set up this page of direct links to paint, fabric, and screens for blue and green screen compositing work at B&H Photo. From here you can buy blue and green paint, and fabric, to make great composites, with materials designed specifically for the task.

    Books About Special Effects

    Cover of bluescreen compositing book

        Most books about compositing have been about the post production side, not the on set side, but there is finally a book that covers both: Bluescreen Compositing by John Jackman.


    Digital Compositing for Film and Video by Steve Wright

    This new book seems very useful for anyone making digital composites from either film or electronic masters. It is not specific to any one software package, but rather focuses on the tools that all have in common, and more importantly really explains well how they all work.

    The Art and Science of Digital Compositing by Ron Brinkmann

    Another interesting book is Digital Compositing in Depth by Doug Kelly. It includes a CD-Rom and is specific to Digital Fusion and other software programs.

    The following is a good general text on Special Effects:
        The Technique of Special Effects Cinematography  Raymond Fielding's classic. It is about traditional film optical/mechanical effects; not video or digital effects.

        Here's a page of useful books on Film and Video topics.
