3 Easy Ways to Remove Text from Video Online

Posted on: Nov. 03, 2021

Videos happen to be a great way to grab the attention of people. However, the distracting texts and watermarks on the videos can tend to reduce their visual appeal. Removing such texts from the video clips can be incredibly difficult, especially if you don't possess the proper knowledge to do so.

Several video editors can be used to remove text from video. However, only some of them offer a good and free service. FlexClip happens to be just the right software that allows you to do the job without any hassle. It provides a total of three different ways to remove text, hence making the job even easier for you. So, without further ado, let's get straight into it.

How to Remove Text from Video Via Cropping

The first method that you can use to remove text from video online is by cropping it out. If the text only takes up a small portion close to the edges of a video clip, cropping it out might be the ideal option for you. The cropping technique can be implemented by either cropping the video from a rectangular shape to a square shape or to a circle or oval shape. While cropping to a square shape is pretty basic, cropping to a circle or oval shape can also be simple if it’s done with a great tool like FlexClip.

Step 1
Click on the Create a Video button to get started.
Step 2
Use the simple technique of drag and drop to add the video to the media section.
Step 3
Add a video to the background by using the Picture-in-Picture feature of FlexClip.

How to Remove the Text in a Video Via Replacing

If the text area in your video clip happens to be very small and you don’t want to crop out anything from the video and want it to look more interesting, your best bet would be to replace the area of text with something that may be another picture or video. While this may sound like a pretty difficult task to do initially, but with the right tool at your disposal, it won't seem too hard. Here is how you can use FlexClip to replace the text in a video.

Step 1
The first step is the simplest of all and requires you to simply drag and drop the video to the media section. Once done, you have to apply it to the storyboard.
Step 2
Next, you are supposed to head over to the elements section and find the shape of your preference to cover the text in the video that is to be edited.
