2. Customize Video Recording Background on Phone
Chromakey apps on mobile phones are less than those on PC, but a powerful application still needs to be mentioned: Chromavid. Chromavid is a very intuitive and user-friendly app that allows you to change the background for video recording. One of its unique features is that Chromavid supports more kinds of Chroma colors besides the standard blue and green, and you can even use yellow and red as the Chroma colors.
Its image background library provides you with backgrounds in various styles, and you can choose from them freely. But it's worth mention that this app only supports editing real-time photos and videos.
