How to easily do green screen on capcut?

Now days every one can do green screen on CapCut, but application of green screen used to be a mystery in the past. One used to wonder how people are flying over buildings, or how the background of the speakers used to change instantly. Personally, I always thought that these people must have spent fortunes and went to different far apart places to record these videos. I was shocked to know that all of these recordings were done in a small corner of their rooms. Still, editing green screen videos required expensive software and costly high capacity PCs.

Thanks to the advent of technology, now removing a green screen and adding custom images or video clips as background is just a few clicks away. CapCut has revolutionized video editing for the common content creators. Along with other interesting features, users can also use green screen on CapCut to remove background. The simple and easy process to do green screen on CapCut will be elaborated in this blog.

Method 1: Use Green Screen with Chroma Key

The obvious requirement for this is to have a video with a green background, in the first place. If you haven’t made any video with green screen, first make one. Be careful about the lighting. Your shadow shouldn’t be reflecting on the green background.

Assuming, you have already made a video with a green screen, now we will learn how to do green screen on CapCut.

Step 1: Download CapCut Mod Apk

First of all, open the CapCut app. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, download CapCut pro Apk from the following button.

Assuming you have recently downloaded CapCut Mod APk, it will require you to grant permission to access your media. Grant this access. Now click on the add Project button on the main screen.

Step 3: Select background image and Green Screen video

Here is the trick, don’t first choose the video on which you want to use Green Screen feature. Normally people want to add another video or image in the background. If you want to change your background through green screen, at this step you should select an image or video that you want to replace as your background. If you don’t add an image or video here, the background of your video will be black after using green screen.

Having selected an image or video for background, now click on the overlay button from the toolbar to select the video on which you want to do green screen.

Now you have to select the green screen video from your device, and Add as overlay in the project. This will be the video which you have made with a green background. You can also crop the video here, if you want to.

It is pertinent to mention here that you can also choose multiple images or videos to be used as the background. As you can see in the following image, I have added two images as background. You can set the duration of each background image as per your own requirement.

If you tap on the button between these two images, you can choose from many transitions of the backgrounds. Choose a template and you will see a slide where you can adjust the time they will take in transition.

If you have added more than two images, you can choose to apply these transition settings to all the backgrounds.

Now, what we have done is that we have added both the video and the proposed background. Now you will see two layers at the main screen. Select the layer which represents the video with the green screen.

Step 4: Remove Green Screen using Chroma Key

Browse the tools menu and select Cutout.

If you move with this bar, you will see the impact on the green screen. Move this slider to that level where the green color disappears completely. If you have selected a video or image for background, you will see that it appeared at the place of the green screen.

I moved the bar only lightly, yet the green color has disappeared. It depends on the quality of green screen video.

Step 5: Adjust Shadows in Green Screen

At times, your, or the main object’s shadow reflects on the green screen due to lighting issues. This shadow doesn’t look good. While recording, you should adjust the lighting in such a manner that your shadow doesn’t appear on the green screen. If after too much effort, still some shadow appears on the green screen, you should use the shadow feature in CapCut Green Screen menu.
