When you open the app, you'll see this screen. On the left side, you'll see the preview of your video.

The first thing you need to do is to connect your camera. The software works with webcams (not all. Check the Logitech Brio model) and DSLR, GoPro cameras connected by video capture device(check the list of potential devices).

If you don't see your camera in a list, then press refresh and check again.

If you want to create vertical videos, then you may want to rotate your camera and video.


3. Chroma key tab

By default in preview sourse the stream is turned on, so you'll see the image from your camera. If you want to check one of the archive videos, then please use the "file" button.


Don't forget to enable the chroma key to see the preview.

The color picker allows you to click on the area you need to cut to be selected. You'll see that it will disappear.

If you selected the background, then you'll see it instead of your selected color in "preview" and "position".

A crop mask allows you to cut areas that you don't want to see in the video.

The position allows you to move the person and scale.
