What to Look for in Cheap Green Screens for Streaming
All green screens are not alike, and that is especially true when you’re trying to find a great screen on a budget. Luckily, there are a few things that streamers can focus on to ensure they’re getting a great deal at a great price:
The overall dimensions of the screen will play a large part in the cost, and streamers want to make sure they’re definitely getting enough screen while ensuring they aren’t wasting money on a screen that they won’t use. Most standard kits will be 6 by 9 feet, but you can often save a few bucks by opting for a smaller size!
Green Screens come with all sorts of different mounting solutions and accessories. Buying a kit that comes with the bare-minimum will ensure you aren’t paying more than necessary. The cheapest kits will include nothing more than mounting clips – if you have a place to clip these, save yourself some cash by jury-rigging your green screen!
While most green screens are green (obviously), many also come in blue. Blue screens are functionally identical to green screens if your software supports them (check to make sure before you buy) and are often dramatically cheaper. Why not take the road less-travelled and save a few bucks?
