What is a transparent background?

A transparent background has nothing in the background pixels, allowing for what's behind it to show through it. Thus, we get a transparent background when the background is faded out while the foreground remains visible. The main advantage of a picture or video with transparent background is the possibility of replacing the background with any other you like.

Files with transparent backgrounds are the graphic designers' favorite tools. No wonder they look much better on websites, presentations, logos, and other creative projects. Transparent background can be helpful for designers as well as for photo & video editing amateurs. In this article, you will learn in which way specifically.

Take notice before working with transparent background

We receive a lot of questions like why the transparent background in my video becomes black when I download it to my computer? The answer is relatively simple: the majority of default programs cannot display transparent background; that's why you see black background after downloading the result (while in reality, it is transparent).

If you want to look at your result with a transparent background, you can download the OBS Studio program and open the video with that software. Anyway, you have nothing to worry about when you upload your transparent-background file to your presentation/website/art project. It will work brilliantly, as in the examples above.

The users of Apple devices should be aware of the fact that transparent background doesn't work on iPhones. On Mac computer, you should use Chrome browser to work with your transparent background files.
