Chroma Key has been a visual effects technique for over fifty years. The ability to composite people and objects onto a variety of backgrounds has changed the way we think about video production and expanded the scope of what is possible with visual storytelling.
Kapwing is an easy online video editing tool that will allow you to chroma key a video to the correct color. You can choose to either replace a color, or remove the color completely and make the video transparent. Use this chroma key tool to turn your green screen videos into usable footage that can placed on top of other content.
Upload a video from your device, or use a link to a video from YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, ect. Then, click the Chroma Key button in the Effects tab. From there, choose which channel to key out: we currently support Green and Blue, as well as Key to Color for removing a specific color value.
If you are using Key to Color, select the color value you want to remove. Use the Threshold slider or sliders to adjust the tolerance of the removal filter. If you want to remove a wider range of color values, move the slider to the right. If you want the range to be narrower, slide it to the left.
Upload or search for a new background using the Upload or Images buttons in the upper toolbar. When everything looks just right, hit the Export button and give Kapwing some time to process your project. Once it's done, you can download your finished video or share it directly on social media!
Made popular by Zoom and TikTok, green screen video effects have cleared the way for creators to think about putting themselves or others in any virtual background settings, sharing animated assets, and making more video memes. Now with Kapwing, anyone can use this green screen editor to make video magic without having to download complicated software.
Kapwing's Green Screen Video Editor lets you remove the background from any green or bluescreen video for free and online. Plus, you can use our eyedropper tool to key out any color from the background of the video. Then, you can overlay the layer on top of other videos and images to incorporate the green screen assets into a multimedia collage.
Open the Kapwing Studio and upload your video (or use a link to a YouTube green screen video). The free editor also supports images and GIFs. With your video layer selected, click the "Effects” tab and select the "Chroma Key" option. Choose the channel or color you want to key out and use the sliders to fine-tune your results. Add new backgrounds, frame your canvas, trim your video, and more to make a polished, professional video to download or share across all your social media channels.
The Kapwing Studio is the easiest place to make videos online - no watermark, no downloads required, no hassle. Now anyone can incorporate this post production green screen replacement for any video without needing a single-use app. We hope you enjoy making your videos with Kapwing.
