Hi im getting composite lab pro for my birthday in august and im creating a script for my new film all about three people who get superpowers
Just a couple off questions about composite lab
1} i have a greenscreen but it isant a greenscreen it is more of a big cloth will it work for greenscreening if i make sure i get out the creases
2} will i be able to create a effect where it look like you have gone invisible and will it make you like like your flying? i bet all the questions have a yes to them and some no

I'll answer your questions as best I can, I can't promise anything because I don't own CompositeLab, but anyway...
1. It depends on what shade of green it is. My brother something like what you're describing with a greenscreen program and it seemed to work fine. If you really need to know, download the demo version and see how it works, assuming you have a camera.
2. Again, download the demo. You'd need more details on the part about making people invisible - if they are just going to disappear i'm pretty sure you can do that. but flying... hmm... don't know about that one.

The difficult part about invisible characters is not removing the actor from the scene; it is the interaction between the invisible character and the visible props, characters, or other scene elements. Much of this must be handled while filming, rather than in post. It will also make a difference if the entire character is invisible, or they have visible clothing. Regardless of what approach you are taking, it is vitasl to prepare for it thoroughly BEFORE you start shooting. And yes, if you shoot it properly, CompositeLab can handle it.
Same goes for flying. If you can shoot convincing footage of someone looking like they are flying, then you can composite it in with no problems. The quality of the effect will hinge directly on the footage of your actor though.

Look at our first move, hunted (www.imaginethisproductions.net). If the effect you seek is like that shoot me a PM.

That color is honestly pretty poor for greenscreening, you want as bright a green as possible. That color you have will work to some extent, but you will not be getting an optimal key with it, and it will take more work on your part to get even a decent key.
