YouTube Shorts Green Screen Now Compatible With All Videos
YouTube creators can now remix any video on the platform into a Short by expanding the green screen feature.
Previously, you could use the green screen to make Shorts along with other short videos on YouTube.
Now you can take any YouTube video and use it in the background of a short video.
With the green screen effect, you can overlay footage of yourself on top of the background video.
This feature is commonly used as a way to respond or comment on other videos.
Or it can be used in a comedic way. For example, you can take a famous clip and superimpose yourself on one of the individuals featured here.
There are now more options than ever to make creative short videos with a green screen effect.
Green Screen + YouTube Shorts
In an announcement, a YouTube representative said:
“Green Screen is the latest way to remix Shorts-a build on Cut that started rolling out last month. On the Green Screen, you can use any eligible YouTube video or Short as the background for your original Short video. “
You will have the option to use other YouTube videos with sound on or off.
To use Green Screen, navigate to a video you want to use and select Create> Green Screen in the options menu at the bottom.
Alternatively, you can press the 3-dot menu in the Shorts player and select Green Screen.
The maximum length you can do is 60 seconds.
Creators get full credit for the original video when their content is remixed into Short, which is a new way for them to expand their audience.
The only content that cannot be sampled is music videos and other videos with visual claims.
If you prefer not to use your content in a Short, you can opt out via a setting in YouTube Studio.
The Green Screen is slowly starting to appear in the iOS YouTube app. In the coming months, it will be available to everyone on iOS and Android.
