How to make green screen effects with WeVideo
Record & import your video

Record yourself in front of a green screen background. Import your video file to WeVideo and drag it to the timeline. The clip you recorded goes in Video 2 track and your chosen background clip (of outer space, for example) goes in Video 1 track.

Open the clip editor

Double click on the green screen clip in the timeline to open the clip editor. Click the Color Keying tab.

Use the color picker tool

Select the color picker tool and then click anywhere on the green screen footage to apply the effect. The green screen effect should apply without the need to adjust the color settings, but you have the option to fine-tune those if you’d like.
