I'm kinda curious which green screen is better to stream on YouTube/Twitch or without using the green screen to go live streaming? I still don't have a green screen to stream on my channel yet, but I just don't know if it is important to get a green screen?

I really like to hear from you, if anybody has any suggestions or more tips about the green screen?

P.S.
Thank you, for reading this & I will wait of your reply from my forum.

Green screen is more of a preference. I've seen a plethora amount of let's players with green screen and let's players without.

Both requires you to invest in lighting and a webcam, but only one of those options require you to spend more money (on a green screen).

I usually have a green screen. Sometimes I get lazy and I don't use it, or I'm tired of having a bright light shining in my face for two hours.

If you have windows and light in the back you'll need a more expensive thinker material green screen - if you have a nice room and like decorating or never have a mess in there you won't need one at all.

Elgato is a known name in streaming They make the Cam Link which let's you stream from a DSLR, they have recording options. They also have green screen's if you're looking for that as an option:

Never knew about the cam link thing :thinking: though I'm not keen on changing batteries mid stream lol.

I actually thought about buying that green screen of theirs, until I moved into my new place and I realized the wall is blue enough for it to be a blue screen xD

Of course, I did heard about the Elgato green screen. Their pretty good to stream on games but the problem is the price.
I might think about to get the Elgato green screen for the future

Just use a AC Power Adapter for the DSLR, I have one for my 70D to use it for streaming purposes... the downside would be that it eventually will overheat as DSLRs are not meant to be constantly on.

Yeah, I've only been using my camera for recording and that's about it. I don't really have the need to "up the quality" with a cam xD

Interesting I've streamed from my G7 and did test recordings for 7+ hours with no issues :X

In terms of green screens, I think having one that folds in like a car windshield sun protector would probably be the easiest.then there's the fancy onces that fold up and fold down.
If you have a way to attach it to something, simply purchasing some green fabric would also do the job :) but you don't NEED a greenscreen. Green screens are good for if your background is messy or you don't want to clean your room :p

Newer collapsed green screen personally worked best for me in my personal projects at school. It's cheap, and portable. Most editing soft wares can work with most colors though. The best color for green screen in my opinion is black, as there is minimal outline and reflection of colors.

The "chroma key" effect i find can remove pretty much any background if you click on it in Premiere pro.
Works really efficiently.
