  • After selecting our video, we are going to KineMaster’s edit screen, where all the magic happens. 
  • Select the clip on the timeline, tap the three dots at the top left of the screen. 
  • Tap duplicate as layer. 
  • Once the clip is duplicated as a layer, we are selecting the Split Screen tool on the top right of the screen.

  • In order to make changes to the clip color of the bottom layer, just simply select it, scroll down and tap Color Filter. 
  • Scroll down again and tap Mono.

Here we have many choices to pick from. You can use any color depending on what you want. Here we’re going to select the first option at the top right. You have the possibility of reducing or enhancing the color effects. We’re going to keep the color at 95. Cool, right? But maybe our video looks terrible and boring, but we’re going to give it a little bit more appreciative look. 

Select the duplicated clip at the bottom, tap the Chroma Key tool, and Enable Chrome key by tapping the button over here. We want to isolate the background and do some color grading to the person in the background by tapping the color, we’re going to select the color red. By increasing or reducing the color of the person, we’re able to isolate the background color.

Now let’s rename the project to color isolation. Now tap on the three dots again and select Export Project. This takes me to the iCloud drive where we can select the folder to store the .kine file. For me, I created different folders for my .kine file so that I can organize my files. Going back to the iCloud drive where my .kine file is saved.
