  • Locate the Objects panel on the left side of the editor interface.

  • Click the plus icon (+) next to the video object type in the Objects panel. This will open the content library panel.

  • At the bottom of the content library panel, click on the Upload button and select a video shot in front of a solid color background on your computer.
Once your file is uploaded you will see a window prompting you to customize its settings. Enable the Color Keyer toggle to remove the solid color background from your video.
You can specify which color you want to remove using its HEX code or select it manually using the color palette.
Once you have selected the color click on the Apply button at the bottom of the color palette, then click Next.
Your video appear on the scene of your experience with a transparent backround. You can change the keying color at any point using the Properties panel on the right side of the editor.
Note: The no-code color keyer uses preset settings designed to work for a wide range of scenarios. In some cases, these presets might not perfectly capture the exact variations of the green color you want to remove.

If you need more precise control over the color keying process, you can fine-tune the settings in the Code Editor. The Code Editor allows you to adjust the keying parameters for a cleaner removal of the green background.
