The Westcott Illusions uLite Green Screen Video Lighting Kit makes the world of green screen videography easy and accessible no matter what your level of experience. Instead of battling the elements or costly location shooting, let this kit bring the location to you. Everything you need is here: 2 uLite Constant Lights with 220VAC lamps and collapsible softboxes, 6.5' stands, 9.0 x 10' wrinkle-resistant green screen and a HitFilm 1 Standard Software DVD. The software has over 65 effects, extensive "film look" filters and the capability to do multi-track video editing as well as 2D and 3D compositing. HitFilm has an intuitive drag-and-drop system to add exciting 3D gunfire, fire, explosions and shock waves to your video footage.
So How Does It Work?
It's simple. Westcott has created a complete kit including everything you need (minus the video camera and computer) to superimpose a subject onto video footage. Play onstage with a rock band or travel through space as with green screen technology; the possibilities are endless.
Chroma-key green, that is. The magic behind this whole process is the green screen. Included in this kit is a 9.0 x 10' extra-large green screen backdrop that is constructed from a heavy-duty wrinkle-resistant matte fabric. You simply hang this background onto any wall or background system using the included pole pocket and grommets. Once hung, place your subject at least 3.0' in front of the backdrop and take your video footage. (Make sure you frame only your subject and the green screen.) The 3.0' distance helps to avoid any shadows on your backdrop that would need to be taken out during post-production.
The Next Step
The next step is correctly lighting your backdrop and your subject. The uLite was designed to do just that. Although the uLites are designed to be compact in nature, they project an extremely broad area of light coverage. Basically, you can light a larger area with a smaller box. This simple 2-light setup will properly light up both your subject and the 9.0 x 10' included backdrop.
Simple Set Up
The uLite is one of the first collapsible softboxes designed to give you the amazing light quality of a traditional style softbox, without the tedious set up. With one simple push, your softbox takes form and locks into place.
Powerful Tungsten Lamps
The included two 500W lamps offer plenty of power to make sure both your subject and green screen are properly lit. Lamps are rated for over 60 hours of use.
