TikTok has announced a new feature called Green Screen Duet. It is aimed at giving one more way to creators for sharing unique video clips that are entertaining for viewers. This new feature is basically a combination of existing individual features named Green Screen and Duet.
The announcement post reveals that Green Screen and Duet are two of the most popular formats on TikTok. This is the reason the team decided to combine the two. The new Green Screen Duet feature simply allows users to use any other TikTok video as background for their own videos. It can be accessed by visiting the Duet layout menu where it sits between the existing "Left & Right" and "React" options.
The team says that creators whose videos will be used for the background will also get proper credits. This is something that TikTok does even for the normal Remix feature. The blog post reads, "To use the feature, users Duet the video they'd like to use as their Green Screen background and select Green Screen from the Duet layout options. The Duetted video will play in the background of your new video as you record."
TikTok is known for adding new features to the application from time to time. It added support for automatic captions about a couple of months ago. It automatically transcribes everything that a creator is saying in the video so that users who are hard of hearing can also understand everything better.
