This was made with Numenor's AnyGameStarter. My AnyGame did NOT have Seanons nor Pets. It did have OFB and below. If you can't use my CAS screen, post here, and I'll make it again with just the base game.

The green screen CAS allows you to easily "cut out" your sims
from CAS screen shots and put them on any background you want.
You can also use the wall paint and linoleum to build an ingame photo studio.
See the example images below. I used GIMP to remove the green.
You may use GIMP, PhotoShop or similar software.

The zip file also contains wall and floor paint that you can use to build a green / blue screen photo studio in game. If you use a photo studio, get decorgal's modeling poses from here and here.

Place the green screen CAS folder in your Sims2 Downloads folder.
To get the completely empty look, you MUST download windkeeper's empty CAS files from here.
If you have University and want to use my YACAS, get windkeeper's empty YACAS files.

Changing from Green to Blue Screen and Back
Please see the _README.txt file included in the zip. It explains
how to switch from green to blue screen and back, and how
to add other colors if you wish.

Here's what the green screen CAS looks like.
Blue screen CAS can be found in the thumbnails.

I used FRAPS to get a screen capture. Then, I used GIMP's
magic wand tool to remove the green from my screenshot.

This gave me a just a sim with no background. (clothing: blue halter, kids' shorts, full body outfit)

I added a shadow and blue starburst background.

Usage Policy
- You MAY upload my walls and floors with your lots, please link here for credit.
- You MAY use my green wall / floor to make different colors for this CAS,
in fact the README.txt file says go ahead and do this if you want to.

Huge Thanks
...to all the tutorial writers and tool makers, fakepeeps7 for mentioning Maxis green paint which I modified, windkeeper for empty CAS, and HP for inspiration.
