White Cyc Studios: Boundless Technology

By Phil Guye

White cyc is an individual element used to build a cyclorama that encircles the stage. All the changes in technology have done tiny to switch the way in which the cyc is lighted over time. All the new technology has increased the importance of correct lighting, and using the right kind of material for the white cyc.

What technology has done is take century old technology and make its use necessary for making virtual backgrounds for virtual and computer effects for the up and coming flood of films, and diverse video applications conditional on PC systems requiring faultless virtual backgrounds that may only be created in white cyc studios. White cyc studios technology dates back to nineteenth century German Theaters and has bounced round the entertainment industry for a long time. White wall surface was use for early twentieth century Broadway plays and finally ended up in Hollywood use for creating computer effects.

The white cyc is a very useful tool when it comes to lighting the white surface stage set. The white cyc supplies the lighting designer with an abounded number of lighting chances for staging the required computer effects scene. The white cyc with correct lighting will draw the spectators focus to the subject that the producer wants to show off. This is the major advantage of white surface backgrounds, and the rationale white cyc studios are used for television commercials, news programs, music videos, dance routines, and other kinds of film media. White is used for the color of the cyc because it leaves the background void so a new background with the required effect can replace it. The void background is great for digital fashion photography enhancing the model's appearance and keeping total focus on the model.

The one or more white cyc studios technology walls can be painted green to mix green screen effects in the white cyclorama flats. This works because the cyc is void of background permitting for the green screen background effect to show up in the place of the white cyclorama background. Using the cyc reinforces the green screen effect by giving it illusions depth and infinite space. Robert Rodriguez exploited a methodology similar when he was filming Sin City when he uses his 1956 Chevy Panel lorry in the film. He places his truck on a platform and films it from all different camera angles. The actors were filmed in front of a green screen background and were composite in the truck film to seem to be inside the van. In reality the actors never were in the wagon during filming. With the enlarging number of computer effects in flicks and TV programs today cyc lighting is terribly essential in making special visual effects.

Film producers have questions about using white cyclorama studios for computer effects. The producer's doubts are quickly dismissed with clear experience of what the cyclorama studios can do when they experience the results from the production lofts. Another use for white cyc studios technology backgrounds is on talk shows when music groups stop by to play one of their new music pieces. The white surface provides the perfect area for making a quick music environment.
