Frequently asked questions

  • Yes. Video overlays and layers are free for all users to use in Clipchamp’s video editor. If you want to use stock videos and images as overlays, some assets are exclusive to paid Clipchamp subscribers.

  • Yes. Video layers are similar to video filters but are not the same feature. Filters and overlays are two separate features in Clipchamp. A filter is an effect applied to your video clip to change its appearance like colors, tones, and brightness. An overlay is added to your existing video on the top layer and does not change the background asset appearance.

  • No. Green screen is a filter in Clipchamp, not a video overlay. Users can, however, use green screen filters as overlays by layering two assets on top of each other.
