  1. Hello, I've been reading various forum posts and articles on chroma keying, but I've gotten a bit stuck on the issue of shadows. I know it's preferable to not have any, but what can you get away with? Below are links to photos of my set, which is a circular room currently painted (badly) white, and lit by 8 fluorescent lights that sit evenly around the top of the circular wall. It's essentially a time-slice / bullet-time setup, with 8 cameras capturing the same action from different viewpoints.

My apologies if this question has been answered already, I had a good search through the forum but didn’t find anything yet… I’m about to undertake a project involving 4 identical cameras (with 4 identical wide angle adapters attached) filming the same scene from different points of view, so I need to make sure I get the best setup. Currently I have a Nizo 481 macro (with the 8-48m lens) and a raynox 0.3x converter, which gives me horizontal focal length of about 3mm (just right for my needs).
