Keynote Live Video Green Screen Tutorial


Boy, do I love Keynote! Each new update brings amazing ‘presentation’ features that educators are using for super creative projects in their classrooms.

One of the COOLEST new features has to be Live Video. This feature was introduced so that when presenting online, you can add a Live Video feed to your presentation - so participants can see you - and your content. What makes this amazing for educators though is the fact that you can remove the background with one easy click!! Green Screen without a Green Screen!!

There is no longer a need to purchase Green Screen apps or set up physical green screens 🙌🏻 You can do it all within Keynote on your iPad.

This video shows you how to set up and record your very own green screen project in Keynote.

You are my hero! I love love love this! I'm a big fan of Adobe Express, but their new app isn't available for iPad just yet, so I was looking for an easy way to do a automatic background removal with video for early elementary students. This saved the day!
