The technology that’s replacing the green screen

The green screen is a Hollywood staple. Should it be?
It’s easy to complain about overreliance on special effects, but for projects that require impossible-to-film environments or have incredibly expensive shots, how do you get the flexibility of green screens without the drawbacks?
Charmaine Chan has worked on one of the possible answers. Vox's Phil Edwards spoke to her about her career and how it's at the forefront of a big technological shift. As a compositor for venerable effects house Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), she’s worked on films like The Last Jedi, assembling various digital elements into a beautiful, seamless image. Her job changed on The Mandalorian, one of the first shows to use ILM’s upgrade for the green screen: LED panels that used video game engine technology to place a realistic-looking world behind the actors.
It was a huge improvement, because green screens actually have a lot of drawbacks. Removing the green screen is never as quick as visual effects artists would hope. It also casts green light upon the set and actors. Even substitutes for a green screen, like projecting an image onto a screen behind the actor, fail to dynamically respond to camera movements the way they would in the real world.
ILM’s solution fixes a lot of those problems, and it also led to creative breakthroughs in which the old Hollywood order of a TV show or movie, in which VFX came last, was suddenly reversed. Now, artists like Charmaine are alongside actors, set designers, and other crew members during filming. That collaboration means that this technology doesn’t just eliminate a screen - it eliminates a creative barrier.

    ...The Mandalorian still also utilizes green screen. I think green screen will always have a place because of the amount of control it gives. Some shots still need post-production beyond just replacing the background. Don't get me wrong, I think these tools are absolutely amazing and will continue open up great new possibilities for film and video, but for anyone who doesn't have hundreds of thousands of dollars for these LED walls, shooting like The Mandalorian will not be realistic for some time. The green screen is still a great tool, it's all about the end product.

    Green Screen is super tricky. If it is not a hard color & soft shadow, expect to see some strangeness. You need a sweet spot, and the cameras had better be high precision & definition. Chroma Key is unforgiving because it can't fully determine all the small pixels nor is it smart enough to read our minds.

    interesting but I have no idea how much cost such tech could have and how long will take to be available for the rest of us, in the other hand 3D software is becoming more and more powerful day by day and can have less cost just develop a movie with 3d models without using actors at all, I believe is probably the way things are going right now because 3d engines right now have hyper-realistic HD resolution I am not sure but in the case of the Mandolarian the cost could be decrease is they use just 3D models and the 3D software will deal with the lighting colors reflections etc

    Do LED panels of a high enough resolution already exist that when viewing the show on a large (70+") 4K screen their pixels will not be discerned? Or do the show creators use LED panels of a more reasonable pixel density but take care not to get the camera too close to them - and perhaps if/when they do they use a softening filter to smooth out the pixels? The idea sounds great, but I suppose it can only work if the combined pixel density of the LED panels & shooting distance is greater than the combined pixel density of the largest TV sets & the viewing distance of the audience. Otherwise softening/blurring filters would need to be used, but those decrease clarity and sharpness. If 4K LED panels of
