Comments about 10x12' Green Chromakey Background:

The use of the term "Muslin" almost put us off buying this green-screen. It's not muslin, but a synthetic material which is slightly stretchy and easy to pull the creases out of.
It has a 3" pocket sewn into one 10' end, which works well for inserting a bar.
Very uniform color, even after machine washing.
From our perspective the downsides are that there is no pocket sewn into the 12' side, and the remaining seams are not sewn, the fabric just ends. We're concerned that attaching clamps to the edges to tension the fabric, will cause it to fray over time.

    Comments about 10x12' Green Chromakey Background:

    Good quality green screen fabric - surface is flocked and hides wrinkles well. But the fabric is thin, the pole pocket stitching is a bit crooked, and the velcro closure on the storage bag grabs the fabric. I gave 4 stars because the finish could be better.

      I use the 10x12' Lastolite background for sports portraits. It makes it easier and more cost effective to use this and add the sports theme background later in Photoshop... The only downside is that you have to have the backdrop evenly lit to make it easier to remove it in PS other than that the chromakey is awesome.

        This is a quality green screen, with a pre-sewn pipe pocket. I support it with a set of pipe and base.

        It's a green screen - plain and simple

        Comments about 10x12' Green Chromakey Background:

        The material is felt covered on one side and tight woven cloth on the other side. I photograph the felt side and my Photokey 4 Pro software seems to like this material. I get a clean key using it. The material is prone to wrinkling. There is a 4 inch rod pocket along one edge. The edges of the material are not straight. Nevertheless, it does what I need it to do.

        Soaks Up the Light

          Comments about 10x12' Green Chromakey Background:

          Well made background. Thick enough, nothing shows thorough behind it. Comes with a handy tote bag. The muslin material is fuzzy on one side, and that seems to pick up the light well.

          I ran a steamer over it to smooth out the creases.

          Under K55 Kino Flo daylight lights, using a Sony consumer camcorder (ie not good for Chroma Key), it keyed well. There was some mottling seen in the key, reflecting the fuzzy material in the muslin. Bringing up the low threshold slightly and the high threshold down removed all that. I had no issues with creases using this with 4' Kino Flo Tegra lights.

          Using this with Kino Flo K5 800MA green lights, and K55 daylights on the subject, I had much better results on the key, needing no low threshold adjustments at all.

            Nice cloth, stretch out the wrinkles don't iron them away!!!! Nice bag prevents damage during transport. The color works very well right in FCP. Get good stands.

              This backdrop seems to be the perfect color for my color key software. The material is reflective but there is virtually no spill onto subjects standing at least 4 feet from the backdrop. Is is also very light weight and easy to store and transport.

                  I have grown to prefer this over my EEFX material. It is easy to light evenly without the need for a separate backlight. It is lightweight and does not show wrinkles. My Fxhome Photokey Pro Sw loves this and can differentiate it from most shades of green. The size is perfect for individual full body portraits.

                    The material is high quality and what I loved about it is that there is already a hoop sewed into it. So you can run a stand right threw it and not really need clamps for it. It came with a carry bag to my surprise which is pretty nice.

                    My only Con: It looks like it was cut with a semi precision instrument but its straight. could use better Aliasing... =)

                      We purchased this product as a supplement to our existing Blue wall in the studio. It not only came with a carrying bag making it portable as well, but the material stretches just enough to take out any wrinkles if clamped in place strategically.
