Does Your Background Need to Be Green to Use a Green Screen Editor?

For the green screen video editor to work effectively, the background needs to be in a colour that’s not used anywhere else in the video shoot, including the subject’s skin, hair, and accessories. Green is ideal because it’s not present in the human skin tone. But you can also use a blue screen—blue is also not present in the human skin tone. However, blue is much more common in clothing and this can be problematic when making your edits.

Which App Is Best for Green Screen Editing?

With so many green screen editing apps available in the market, picking the right tool to edit our video can be tough. Here are some considerations:

  • If you’re not an experienced video editor, you want to go for a user-friendly chroma key video editor. It should be easy to remove the green background and replace it with any video or image without looking unnatural.  
  • A web-based green screen editor app tends to be more convenient than one that needs downloading. You don’t have to worry about the app’s compatibility with your PC or finding the disk space for the app installation.

Additional editing capabilities.Likely, that removing the green screen is not the only change you want to make to your video. Go for a green screen video editor that lets you make other edits, such as adding text, subtitles, audio, adjusting the aspect ratio, and any other adjustments you might need to make.

How Can I Use a Green Screen Video Editor Without Green Screen?

You don’t need to have a green screen to remove the background in your video using Keevi. Simply upload your video. Under Video Settings, click Remove Background. Adjust the threshold to remove the background to perfection. Upload the video or image you want to use as your new background. Click Export.

Tips to Successful Green Screen Editing

Here are a few pointers to have a professional video.

Dressing code:

  • Your subject shouldn’t wear anything green or with a hint of green or else these areas will become transparent once you hit the chroma key video editor.
  • Avoid green floorings as well.
  • Have the subject put on some makeup. A green background could make them look pale.

Avoiding Green screen spills:

Green screen spills is a situation where a green cloud is cast over the subject. It makes the subject look vaguely green, which could be off-putting to your audience.

Avoid green screen spills by:

  • Using proper lighting. Have separate lights for the subject and the green screen.
  • Putting enough distance between the subject and the green screen. If the subject is right in front of the green screen, it could cause spills. Ideally, you want to have at least a six-foot distance.
  • Using a blue screen. Green is brighter than blue, which causes it to bounce back more light and cause spills. But you need to ensure that nothing else in the video is blue.
  • Not wearing shiny clothes or reflective jewelry and other accessories. They can pick up on the lights and cause the green spill. It’s best to stick to dark shades.

Making the video shoot:

  • When shooting a simple green screen video, have the camera static. Slight movements of the camera could make the subject look like they’re vibrating after you’ve used the green screen editor.
  • When shooting the video, have the green screen fill the entire background. You can hang the green backdrop on a frame.
  • The green screen should be as flat as possible. It shouldn’t have creases, wrinkles, or tears. You can buy or rent a heavy-duty wrinkle-resistant matte fabric. Matte is great in that it doesn’t reflect light that could cause green screen spills. If you’re using a painted green wall, ensure that there are no scuffs and scratches.
  • If you’ll be shooting the subject from head to toe, it’s important to have the green screen continue down the wall and to the floor under the subject’s feet. Smooth out the transition from wall to floor by having a curved corner at the point where the wall meets the floor.
  • If there are parts of the video you’ll not need, cut them out before replacing the background. You don’t want to spend time fine-tuning the background in a part of the video only to later realize you won’t be needing that part. Keevi has split, trim, and crop functions you can use to edit the video.
