Is There Such A Thing As A Green Screen Floor?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: February, 2021 - Modified: February, 2024

If you have a studio or space that will be used for videography, video editing, or certain types of photography, having a green screen floor is a fabulous idea. Much like green screens, a green screen floor allows you to remove or key out the floor and drop the image or captured video onto a floor and background of your choice post-production. This chroma key process of removing a colored background or floor is widely used in custom dance videos, commercials, product features, and more.

Chroma Floor Blue/Green

The Chroma Floor Blue/Green product is easy to install and perfect for professional studios, on-location film shoots, commercials, photoshoots, and TV stations. It’s reversible, with one side being green and the other being blue. This high gloss product boasts precise color matching with Rosco Chroma Key paints. This allows for seamless compositing.

Each of these rolls measures 131.3 feet long and 63 inches wide. Weighing only 1.9 pounds per linear foot with a 1.3 mm thickness, this product is lightweight and easy to install, clean, and maintain. Each roll provides 689 square feet of coverage and costs about $2,500 or less than $3.70 per square foot.

Premium Foam Mats

Premium Foam Mats, although not designed to specifically be a green screen floor, are able to work as one. If you want a portable mat product that can quickly and easily be installed and disassembled, this solution is a good choice.

These solid-color foam mats are made of high-quality EVA foam. Interlocking floor tiles made of this type of foam material can be used to transform a space into a custom-sized green screen floor for a temporary outdoor or indoor setting.

These ⅝ inch-thick tiles offer thermal insulation, noise suppression, and/or waterproof properties. They are also stain-resistant. They are so easy to install; simply push the puzzle-style interlocks together and you’re good to go.

This top-quality EVA foam flooring provides shock absorption, too, so it’s a great choice if your actors or models will have to stand for extended periods of time. It also features a thatch surface texture which stands up well to constant use and resists scuffing.

The ⅝ inch premium interlocking foam mats also include a 1-year warranty against product defects. Priced at approximately $6 per 2x2 foot tile, this offers the perfect blend of quality, comfort, and affordability.

Here's what a customer had to say about their lime green foam mats: ''Just got my order and I am very impressed and thrilled! I ordered the lime green foam kids gym mats (5/8 Premium). I needed a good and durable green matted floor for doing my green screen work and these fit what I needed perfectly! They are durable, high quality and key out perfectly during the chroma keying process while filming.''

Vario Floor Tape

Finally, Vario Floor Tape can be used when applying or installing a green screen floor! This peel-and-stick tape can be used to tape down the perimeter and seams of different flooring materials. Designed to work as professional dance studio flooring tape, this PVC product is available in numerous colors - including green. It costs around $20 per roll and is 108 feet long.
