The market of video editing is expanding its dimensions. It brings golden futuristic opportunities with a profitable business. Past was the day when video editing was a challenging task for even minute editing work. This 21st century comes forward with some revolutionary video editing tools, which deliver high-end editing finish in comparatively less time.
The expansion of video streaming sites and OTT platforms promote video editing. The professional video editing tools used by the video editors are capable of every possible modification in a video. The video editing tools can even remove the background of a video, and you can place any customized background. This technique saves video makers’ time and provides the freedom of putting a desirable background in the video. Erasing background and customizing scenarios give the video-makers power to create any possible imaginary location and scenes.
The process of removing the background can be done by following specific techniques. Let’s get into the details to know the process effectively.
Use Of A Green Screen
The video makers put a screen in the background while shooting the video. So that they can remove and replace the background during editing. A screen is used to identify the background and help the video editing software detect what to change.
Most filmmakers or video makers choose green-colored screens for this purpose. And this is the essential part to remove any background of the video. Some backgrounds or objects can be removed using the blending technique, but it will not look that professional again. Crucially this blending technique only works with specific videos only. Adding with it, an exact color combination is required to use the blending process. This makes it a difficult process to perform.
It is important to understand why green screens are chosen for the background? Why not any other color? The answer is, it contrasts human skin color, and human skins reflect extensively identical ratios of each color of the spectrum. The green color is the ideal match for executing this task. Many video makers have already tested several other colors. But if the actors have green coloring in their dresses, you can go for a blue screen for the alternative.
Chroma Key Technique
Once you have the green screen in the background, it will become easier to remove the background to put any desirable scene. In the next step, you have to put the video in the editing software. Once the video is added, you have selected the replacing video or photography you want to place. This video or photo will be visible in the background in place of the green screen.
You have to keep in mind that this new background must be free from green color if the background is also having a green color in such a case; you also have to put a blue screen as an alternative.
Once you set both the things, you can enable the chroma key and magically replace the background with the new image or video you selected. At once, the chroma key placement may not be perfect in replacing the background. You need to adjust the detail curves, masking level, along with the color adjustment, to get a perfect background removing output.
Improving the background of your video can fuel up the engagement rate of your audience by at least 10%. A lot of experimentation and concluding techniques have been invented regarding how to change the background in a video. The use of the green screen is one of the most popular methods used by videomakers of today. Moreover, talking on professional grounds, it’s even the most proficient method of changing and removing background in a video. However, this isn’t the end.
Applications and software for removing the background in a video without the use of a green screen are coming up. Methods such as cutting and pasting characters, using darker background for blending it with the new background, and using the Lasso tool are the emerging techniques used by these applications. Moreover, simple procedures such as increasing the focus on the main character and blurring the background can also help. One can easily remove the ground in a video by these applications.
