How to Make A Green Screen Video
Make Green Screen videos
All you need to do to make a green screen video is film yourself in front of a physical green screen (a sheet made out of green fabric will do the job just fine). Flixier will then allow you to replace the background of your video with anything you want with a simple click!
Remove video backgrounds of any color
Flixier’s chroma key effect works with all colors, so your ‘green screen’ doesn’t necessarily have to be green!
Change the background of your video
With Flixier you can stack up as many video and image tracks as you want meaning that you can remove the green background from your video with any video or still image you want.
Choose a background from stock footage
After removing the green screen from your videos you can use videos and images from our built-in stock footage libraries to find the perfect background for your videos. Anything from corporate, nature, city or even stages can be found in our libraries.
No downloads or installs
Flixier is a fully online video editor! That means you don’t need to download or install anything in order to use it, not even a browser extension!
Record your green screen video. Then, drag it over to your Flixier library along with the video or image that you want to use as a background. You can also use the webcam recorder built-in Flixier to record your video.
Drag both clips to your Flixier timeline, the one you want to use as a background and the one with yourself in it. Make sure the one filmed in front of the green screen is on top. With the top video selected, go to the Effects tab on the right and look for Green Screen. Use the color picker to select the color of your Green Screen and then drag the slider left or right to adjust the Green Screen strength until everything looks perfect!
After you’re done editing your clip, click the Export button to download it or automatically publish it to up to seven different destinations!

I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.
My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
Frequently asked questions.
Can I combine green screen videos?
Of course, you can import as many different green screen videos as you want. Just place them on top of each other and then make sure to apply the green screen effect on each video individually.
Can I use green fabric for a green screen?
If you need to make your own green screen on a budget, you can always just use a green bed sheet, or go to your nearest craft store and purchase some green fabric.
Can I use a green screen with Zoom?
Zoom has a feature that removes your background automatically if your computer is powerful enough. However, if you’re looking to get the best results, having a physical green screen behind you is recommended.
