AI Portrait

Add AI Portrait Filters to Videos

Filmora AI Portrait feature can separate the portrait and background in a video.

With the help of Artificial Intelligence technology, it can automatically detect the portrait in videos and remove the background quickly. You don’t need to use the green screen or chroma key anymore. Moreover, you can even add borders, glitches, pixelated, and noise effects to make your video stand out.

The AI Portrait filters work best for videos with a single portrait facing the camera straight on. Multiple subjects, fast movements, and backlights may affect the result of the AI Portrait feature.
