How to Remove Background from Video in Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro is one of the most popular video editing software, which has a comprehensive set of features, including removing background from a video. It also offers the Chroma Key function for producing background-free videos easily. There is a basic Color Key and the Ultra Key. Both work similarly, but the Ultra Key is what I prefer to use.

Here is how to remove background from your videos using the Ultra Key:

Step 1
Add the video clip that you want to remove background to Adobe Premiere Pro.
Step 2
Find the Ultra Key effect by navigating to Effects > Video Effects > Keying > Ultra Key. Then grab that and drag it over and place it on your footage.
