I'm familiar with "Format" filters in the UK. Bogen
reps them in the US. I just tested their "ProComp"
green screen filters with some success. They have magenta
cc with diffusion (a crystal sparkle) The heavier sets have
small black crosses, like soft FX or star filters. I didn't
have much success with them, but the 0 15cc really help saturate
the green well, we tested the key without a screen correction
(a shot of the green stage without talent to be used by the
software to cancel out any irregularities) and it looked great,
I'm still waiting for post to see the final product.

Yes, I'm familiar with the Formatt filters for camera, but
these are gels, in rolls, for lights. I was wondering if they
were the same company, if anyone had used them on lights,
etc. This was the first I'd seen of them. If I use this lighting
vendor again (and I'd like to) I might want to have them switch
out to Lee unless I can hear of other people's positive experience

Same company, they're fine, I've used them, no problems.
I don't know those gaffer things tho', you know, how fast
they fade etc but that's not something I know about Lee or
I usually avoid me too many e-mails, but what the heck, I'm
into that stuff these days too. Especially the cyan’s
and the yellows. It's finally nice to have a true yellow gel
that isn't the color of a warning sign.
