VideoProc 3.2 Built with Intelligent Tech for Video Background Segmentation in Webcam Recording

December 13, 2018

CHENGDU, China--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 13, 2018--Digiarty Software pushes VideoProc forward to Version 3.2 today by adding a creative and expedient Green Screen Keying feature in the new update of Windows version. Users can remove the original green (or blue) screen, segment foreground from background, make background transparent, and change the background while recording a video from webcam or facecam without post processing, similar to Google and iPhone’s AI assistant image segmentation.

This function in the variation is available in both “Webcam” and “Screen & Webcam” modes through setting color value, similarity, smoothness, key color spill reduction and opacity before recording started.

Green (or blue) screen is recognized as an industry-standard-like background, widely used in weather forecasts, feature film and so on. In general cases, green screen keying can be realized only through post production technique. Uniquely, VideoProc 3.2 (Windows version) can produce a natural-looking transparent background at the time of webcam shooting, instead of post processing. “For example, when you need to record screen and webcam at the same time, you can put a green or blue cloth as your background, and in this case, you are enabled to filter out the background and key out your own figure or other subjects on the foreground through our product. In this way, you can virtualize the recorded screen as the background, better integrate yourself into the video, or even protect your privacy without exposing the real recording environment”, details provided by Cecilia Hwung, marketing department manager from Digiarty.

Most non-linear editing software apps currently support chroma key compositing, but have difficulty in coordinating with video acquisition compression and high-speed hard disk. It is even harder to realize it for a linear video editor, but VideoProc has made a technically new breakthrough and sets a new bar for Linear Green Screen Removing. Indeed, it can hide not only any green or blue screen, but possibly also background in other solid (pure) color.

How to Remove Background in Webcam Recording with VideoProc?

Preconditions:

1. Record from a webcam or use a webcam emulator.

2. The background should be solid colored, best in green or blue.

3. Use VideoProc V3.2 or later (Windows version) on a PC.

Step-by-step guide:

Step 1. Open VideoProc and choose “Recorder” option on the home interface.

Step 2. Click “Webcam” or “Screen & Webcam” ( record screen while showing facecam ).

Step 3. Click setting button on the top right, and go to “Settings”.

Step 4. Drag the Settings window to make it next to the record window to facilitate previewing during parameter adjustment.

Step 5. On the Settings window, tick “remove webcam background”, click color value, use the tool to pick screen color and click OK.

Step 6. Preset the parameters before recording if necessary (explained as follows):

Similarity: It simply means how close to the selected color that is to filter out. Where 1 is that exact color, and increasing it from there increases the range of colors to key out.

Smoothness: It means blending out colors around the color that are keyed out transparent and smoothing out the areas around the edges.

Color Spill Reduction: Increasing this value may be helpful if the resulting image has a “spill” of the key color.

Opacity: It is the opposite of Transparency. The default value is 100, which is not suggested to be lowered generally.

VideoProc also allows you to preselect recording quality between HQ and SQ, as well as format among MP4, FLV, MOV, MKV and TS with x264 encoder. In a world, its recorder feature is the go-to solution to record gameplay, presentations, webinars, Skype call, software reviews and video instructions.
