Question Which Green Screen is better to Stream on Gaming?

#1
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

You're lucky with that wall! (insert political joke here)

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.
