How to remove background in Clipchamp iOS app

Don't have an aesthetically pleasing video background? Or just want to make an entertaining TikTok set in outer space? Remove your video's background and replace it with a solid color background, stock image, or a camera roll photo. 

First of all, you must have the Clipchamp mobile app installed with an iPhone X or later. The reason is that the retina scanner is used for depth perception to determine which part of the video is the persona and which part is the background.

Step 1. Create a new video

Tap on the + symbol to create a new video.

Option 2. Select a stock photo

Instead of a plain colored background, have some fun and choose one of Clipchamp's stock library images.

Tap on Stock and scroll through a wide variety of stock images like offices, brick walls, and the beach. The background remover will work in both landscape and portrait mode.

Step 3. Record your video

Tap the red record button to start recording your video with your new background. You can stop as many times as you need to pause for a break and keep recording when you're ready.

When you're done hit the checkmark to finish and enter the editor where you can make any changes, add captions, text, and more.
