Add a background or replace your video’s background to create professional training materials

Add a background image to your video or use another video as background—perfect for creating professional training materials. VEED features a full range of professional video editing tools to help you make videos that are suitable for business use, whether that’s for training, office communication, or marketing. You can even remove your original background using our one-click video background remover. Or do a video overlay!

Ways you can add or change your video’s background:

Use an image or video as a background

Upload an image and use it as a background for your video. Make sure to drag your video on top of the image on the Timeline and make the video smaller than the image. You can also use another video as background using this method.

Remove and replace the original background

Use our video background remover and our Artificial Intelligence software will automatically edit out the background of your video. Just click on your video and click Remove Background. Replace it with an image or another video.

Use a green screen

If you’ve recorded your video against a green screen background, you can easily use another image or video to replace the green screen. You can even add animations and effects!

Add logos and watermarks to create brand awareness

You can also add your logo and watermark to your videos to increase brand awareness online. Use our Brand Kit (available in premium) to save your brand assets on your dashboard and add it to any project. You can also add your brand colors, fonts, and more! Animate your logo to make it even more noticeable. Improve brand retention with branding that reaches every eye that your video content does.

Add subtitles to make your video searchable

You can make your videos even more searchable by including a text transcription of the entire video. All you need to do is click ‘Subtitles’ > ‘Auto Transcribe’, and our speech-recognition software will create a (.txt) text file of your entire video’s audio. Not bad, right? You can simply copy and paste the text into your video’s description, and voila!, you’ve just made your video’s transcript searchable.

What they say about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen. Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software! I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there. It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
