Apply video transparency

Aug 28, 2019

You can convert any relatively solid color in a video overlay to be fully transparent, thus making the base video visible in the transparent areas. This means you can remove plain colored backgrounds from a video overlay or remove a solid colored element from the subject of a video overlay, such that the content of the video behind that element shows through.

This functionality works like a green-screen effect, but can be applied to any HEX color. Check out our blog post for more details

Overlays sequence


To make a color transparent in your video overlay, apply both the make_transparent effect and the color parameter to your video overlay component. You can also specify a tolerance value for the make_transparent effect to allow for minor differences in the shade of the specified color.

The make_transparent parameter is supported only for videos within an overlay component. You cannot apply this parameter to a video without an overlay.
