Replace video backgrounds on the spot. With one-click removal, automatic transparency, and easy swapping, you’re in control of your video background.
Magically remove the background of a video without manually tracking objects
Tracing around the subject of your video is exhausting (and unnecessary). Remove video backgrounds in an instant, and replace it with a solid color, image, or video just as quickly. Time to get more content done.
Get impressive studio-grade quality with or without a green screen
Don’t have a green screen? That’s okay. Kapwing’s video background remover still works great. And if you do shoot video with a green screen, try the chroma keying feature that easily removes green—or any background color you choose.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you make a video background transparent?
Kapwing’s video background remover automatically makes your video background transparent so you can layer a new photo or video background behind your main video if you want. Otherwise, it will appear white. To make a transparent background, click “Remove Background” in the Effects tab, and it’s a done deal!
What is the AI tool to remove background from video?
Kapwing offers a video background removal tool that uses AI to separate the main focus of the video from the background. While Kapwing’s background removal tool works best on a single person, you can use it on any of your videos or our available stock footage.
How can I replace the background of a video?
Automatically remove video background with our one click tool. Then, replace the original background by uploading a file or choosing an asset from our massive library of royalty-free images. Just like that, you’re chilling at the beach. For an interesting twist, swap out your background with a video instead of an image.
