Well Lit Solid Color Backgrounds in AO

Post by babaoroody » Sat Sep 03, 2016 12:48 pm

I am working on an AO Froob toon based machinima and want to be able to do some chroma key (green screen) for dialogs and showing emotes.

I am looking for in-game AO Froob accessible locations or interiors that are well lit, and which have a wall or large object of a solid color which the toons can be video recorded with that as the background.

The best thing I have found so far is the top of Old Athens tall buildings using the blue sky as the background. This has produced workable chroma key effects, but is limited by the time of day.

Any thoughts or ideas on suitable locations or interiors that are easily accessible at all times of the day?

How about one of the backyards? They are technically outside but always brightly lit.
Alternatively, use an apartment. You could decorate that at your liking as well and add light sources on your own as needed.
The mark of a truly superior player is the use of his superior judgement to avoid situations requiring the use of his superior skill.
