    Just wondering if anyone has used green screen gloves along with a green screen to hold something in a shoot and later key the gloves out? Would you recommend them? Do they work well? I found these https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/813423-REG/Savage_GSGLOVES_Green_Screen_Gloves_One.html any suggestions for a particular glove you may have worked with?

    Thanks.

    I can visualize situations where the gloves could be very helpful/ expedient. You might consider also having a blue pair as well. You want the fingers to fit pretty tightly.

    Having a cube or apple box, and a few sticks/dowel rods and some foam core, even a column or door, all painted with the same chromakey paint, can become extremely useful.

    Because of the many contours of the hand, you will have a harder time pulling a perfect key of the glove in just one step, however, it will still save you a ton of rotoscoping time.
