Whilst the Star Trek fan production of my friends and me doing its best to keep on improving (today ordered a new 3x7m green screen: yeeey), there is a particular thing which is bothering me a bit. So I hope there are some smart minds over here who can help providing insights.
One of us spend most of his free time this year sewing costumes 'till deep in the night - every guy is entitled to have his own hobby... - which consist of one half black, one half gray and one half department colors. The darker part of the costumes produce a lot of noise/grain. I really like to get rid of it! Anyone an idea?
We use a Canon HV20 camera, 4x300W key, 2x300W fill and 2x300W back. In a classroom.
To give you an idea where I'm talking about, I've put a sample online containing parts of raw material with the composed result.

Yours, and thanks in advance!
