Conclusion

To summarize, a green screen allows you to add an element from one video to another, effectively placing that element in another background.

To do this on CapCut, you’ll need a green screen video and a video background. Then, follow these steps to remove the green screen:

  1. Create a new project with the video background
  2. Add the green screen video as an overlay
  3. Go to the “Chroma Key” option
  4. Select the the green color with the “Color Picker” option
  5. Increase the intensity until the green screen disappears completely

Once you increase the intensity, the green screen background will disappear. However, the object in the green screen video will be left behind.
