Guys, thanks for the tips, that was some really great info! The reflecmedia kit looks awesome, but it's much more than I'm willing to spend for this particular application. Nevertheless, I have a clever idea about how I may be able to duplicate their setup. That said, I do have some further questions. I wasn't very clear about this the first time around, but specifically with regard to Modul8, how good is the chromakey module? I mean, I'm going to assume that it doesn't rival that Ultimatte DV box from reflecmedia, but assuming I am able to get a good green/blue screen setup with correct lighting and such, what are the results going to be like?
I know that's a really difficult question to answer with any degree of certainty, but what I'm asking is, can it generate an image that's going to be at least usable? Again, I'm not looking for cinema quality. As a point of reference, if you've seen the keying that iChat does (to insert funny backgrounds), can I get something equivalent to that? [on a side note, I'm actually pretty impressed with how good of a job that iChat can actually do at that, especially considering that it does it basically automagically with the crappy iSight camera].
