How to Use Green Screen Overlays in CapCut?

In recent video cuts, it appears that everyone is employing green screens. You’ll ultimately come across some of these tweaks if you surf through social media long enough. A meme in a selfie video, complex effects generated with moving subjects, or banners in a YouTube video are all possible examples.

We’ve got you covered if you want to get in on the green screen action. Green screen overlays are demonstrated in CapCut in this article. It’s simple, quick, and free to do.

How to Use CapCut’s Green Screen Overlays:

The CapCut Chroma tool makes utilizing green screen overlays simple, but using green screen videos in your edits requires some planning.

1. Obtain the Green Screen Overlay:

To use a green screen video, you must first acquire one and save it to your camera roll.

You may locate green screen videos by searching on YouTube for “popular green screens” or whatever else you’re looking for. There are also a slew of Instagram accounts dedicated only to green screen footage.

If you see videos with a blue or pink screen, don’t be worried. The editor will use a different color instead of green if the subject contains a color that is too similar to green. This is acceptable as long as the color is a solid, high-opacity, non-pixelated color.

Keep in mind that if you’re going to incorporate non-created green screen videos in your edits, you’ll need to give credit to the creators/editors when you publish the final product.

It’s also possible to make your own green-screen video. Get the video you want to turn into a green screen and edit it with a mobile video editor that can remove the moving object’s background and replace it with a green screen. This can be accomplished with CapCut’s Remove Background function.

2. Get Your Video Ready:

You might have already finished a video edit sans the green screen somewhere else, but you’d like to use it on an unedited video. In any case, make sure the video is saved to your camera roll. It’s much better if you created the complete video edit in CapCut because it’s already imported.

To get your video into CapCut, follow these steps:

  • From the home screen of the CapCut app, hit New Project.
  • Select Video, then find and select the video from your camera roll. Tap Add from there. After that, you’ll be taken to the main editing window.

3. Get the Green Screen Ready:

It’s now time to align the overlay and import it. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Tap away from any clips that you’ve chosen. Select Overlay > Add overlay from the menu at the bottom of the page.
  • In your camera roll, find the green screen overlay, select it, and hit Add. In the main editing window, it will be imported as a separate clip.
  • To choose the clip with the overlay, tap on it. Now drag it to the desired location in the playback frame. To alter the size, pinch two fingers together.
  • Locate the clip’s trim tools at the beginning and finish (represented by white bars) while the overlay is still chosen, and trim the clip’s playback duration as necessary.

4. Get rid of the background:

At this point, the green screen overlay should be covering some or all of the video you just imported. With the Chroma feature, we’ll eliminate the green component and isolate the topic.

To get rid of the green screen, follow these steps:

  • To pick the overlay clip, tap on it. Select the Chroma key from the bottom menu by scrolling down until you find it.
  • A color picker should be selected. On the playback window, a colored circle will appear. Drag it until the middle point is hovering over the color you want to remove; the circle will transform to that color.
  • Select Intensity from the Chroma key settings. Drag the slider until the colored screen is completely gone. Make sure you don’t drag it to the point where the subject vanishes.
  • Turn the slider to zero in the Chroma key settings and select Shadow.

And that’s all there is to it! You may want to rearrange the overlay’s subject now that the background has been removed. Simply press the overlay clip to select it, then drag it across the playback frame using your finger.

If you’ve been hoarding green screen overlays and have been itching to put them to use, now is the time. To do it for free on the CapCut mobile editing app, follow this short and simple guide.
