Summary
Adding a background to a video can be easy. Follow the detailed guide below and you can put a background to any video in 3 steps. Let’s get started!

A video background is merely a decoration. It creates atmosphere and enhances the look of the main object. In general, any color, pattern, or photo can be set as a video background.

Adding a background to video could be a different task because there are two different video backgrounds. One is regular video background, the other is the green screen background. In this post, we will only talk about adding a regular background to your video. You don’t need any editing skills, or a well-designed video background at hand. Follow the steps below.
