The AI Portrait is a new add-on in Wondershare Filmora. It can remove video backgrounds easily without using a green screen or chroma key, and allows you to add borders, glitch effects, pixelated, noise, or segmentation video effects.
Note: The AI Portrait add-on can be added to Wondershare Filmora for an additional payment (subscription). A Filmora license is not included with your purchase of this Add-on.
The AI Portrait Add-on works best for real and single subjects facing the camera straight on. Multi-person portraits, fast movements, and backlights will influence the result of the AI Portrait. Follow these steps to remove the video background with the AI Portrait Add-on:
Import the video footage to the timeline, and then go to Effects – AI Portrait, and you will see all the AI Portrait effects here. Click the AI Portrait thumbnail and check it in the preview window.
Drag the thumbnail of the selected AI Portrait to the timeline, and the following pop-up window will come out.
Since AI Portrait is an additional module, you will have two options: click the Purchase button to buy it or click Try It for free to continue.
Note: You need to subscribe to the AI Portrait Add-on Plan before exporting the video with the applied AI Portrait effects.
In this case, click Try It and you can place the AI Portrait effect on the track above the video. Don’t forget to adjust its position or the duration. You can also place it on the video track so all the selected AI Portrait effect will be applied to all the segments of the video.
Play the video and check the results. You can add multiple AI Portrait effects to the clip by dragging and dropping them to the timeline.
You can also adjust the settings of the AI Portrait effect to get the best results. Different AI Portraits have different settings. Double click the clip in the timeline and scroll down to Video Effects, check the settings of the portrait effect that you can change. Let’s take Human Noise for example:
Percentage: Indicates the amount of noise of the portrait effect in the clip. The range is 0% (no effect) to 100% (the portrait may not be recognizable).
Alpha: Defines transparency areas in the portrait effect. 0 means totally invisible (no effect), and 100% means full effect.
Edge Thickness: Indicates the width of the edge. Lower value means smaller width, and larger value means wider width.
Edge Feather: Indicates the blur range of the portrait effect edges. The greater the feathering value, the hazier the range.
If you are not satisfied with your settings, you can click on the Restore button next to the value boxes.
Note: to remove the portrait effect, just uncheck the effect option under Video Effects, and the portrait effect will disabled automatically.
Once your clip is ready, click the Export button and you will see the pop-up window shown below.
As we said before, to export the video footage with the applied AI Portrait effects, you need to purchase the AI Portrait Add-on separately.
Or, you can remove the applied effects and export or re-edit the project to remove them.
