Today, creators on TikTok add images or videos to the background of their videos as they explain a new trend or news story, giving their viewers a reference point and resource. YouTubers tend to add a background to their videos during the editing process to keep their location private or to simply hide any mess that may be in their physical background. Now, it’s time for you to create the overall feel of your entire video with a background that perfectly represents or supports your content.
With Kapwing, you have all the tools you need at your fingertips to choose a background (video, image, or GIF), remove your original video background, and add a new video, GIF, or image background in seconds. Change the background of your video easily online – no downloads required.
Get started by uploading your video to Kapwing. You can either upload a video file directly from your device or by pasting a video URL link in the upload bar.
Automatically remove the background of your video by opening the “Effects” tab in the right-hand sidebar and selecting “Remove Background”. Simply drag and drop your new background (image, video, GIF) on top of your video, right-click the layer, and select “Send Backward” to set it in the background.
Export your video and download a file. Upload to your favorite platform to share with others online.
Here, you don’t need to know what a chromakey is. You don’t have to have your own green screen backdrop either. Kapwing’s robust, browser-based video editor allows you to automatically remove the background of your videos and add a new one without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a green-screen video backdrop. Keep that extra space in your apartment or house, and add a background image or video to keep your video compelling to your viewers.
With Kapwing, you have full control over your video from start to finish. Add an MP4 file to the background of your video, add background music, and make the background of your music video a solid color like white or black for a professional feel – the options are limitless. Explore your own creative mind and eye when it comes to changing your video background to anything you want.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
