here are the steps to use Green Screen on CapCut

1. PrePare the Video

  • If you have created the video in CapCut then just click on "New Project".
  • Select the Video from your Camera Roll and Click "Add".
  • It'll take you to the main editing window where you can add an overlay.

2. Use Green Screen

  • Select, Overlay>Add Overlay.
  • Browse to the Green Screen that you imported and click on "add". After finding the green screen clip in your camera roll, tap on it and select Add. The new footage will be imported as an extra layer in the main editing window so you can edit away!
  • Once the clip has been selected, it can be moved around in place using a mouse cursor on the computer and with two fingers on the android. You can change the size according to the requirement.
  • Once you have selected the Overlay, locate its trim tools at both ends and cut down on how long it takes for playback to play through.

3. Remove the BackGround

  • At this point, you should see the green screen overlay covering part or all of the video you've first imported. We're going to remove the green part and isolate the subject with the Chroma feature.
  • Once the footage has been trimmed, look for the Chroma key button on the menu. Clicking on this will bring up the "Chroma Key" tool window which allows users to adjust levels of green and remove parts of the video that don't need to be green.
  • Here you can adjust hue, saturation, contrast and brightness to remove the green background from video. The keyer will automatically set levels that bring out the subject and make it stand out against a completely different background.

All done. Now that you have removed the background you can edit the video again.
