TikTok is built upon the foundation of creative expression and we want to provide our users with the creative tools to make it easy to produce fun, joyful content on the app. This post is part of our TikTok Tutorial Series, where we spotlight our newest or little-known product features to educate users on how to use our tools in the TikTok creative suite and improve their content creation. 

The sky isn't blue! At least not when creators try out our latest creative effect. When TikTok users see a creative effect, they imagine all the ways in which that effect can be used. With the new Green Screen Sky effect, they now have the ability to replace the sky above with videos, characters, and countless surprises. 

TikTok’s Green Screen technology has inspired some of the community’s most creative content, as users have been able to set their videos anywhere they can imagine (assuming there's an image or video of it). TikTok's Green Screen Effect has been used by creators around the world more than any other effect, in fact, it has been featured in more than 129 million creations, and TikTok's Green Screen Video has been featured in nearly 13 million creations.  

With the success of other green screen effects on TikTok, we're excited to see the unique and interesting ways this new tool is used. The sky is the limit!

To access the "Green Screen Sky" effect, simply:

  1. Tap the "Effects" icon from the video creation page 
  1. Select the Sky Green Screen effect icon. 
  1. Insert the video you'd like to use and record your TikTok 

For inspiration on how to use the Green Screen Sky effect in your videos, check out these TikToks already posted from users:
