Record Video with Virtual Background on Windows 11/10

Windows enjoys the largest number of users. If your computer works with Windows as well, one of the best screen recorders that can change your background is AWZ Screen Recorder. It boasts two handy tools to alter your background: AI recognition and green screen.

While recording with a webcam, the former separates the image of yourself from the background accurately and records a video with a blurred background. The latter provides a virtual green screen. You can utilize these tools to superimpose the background and set up a virtual background for video recording in OBS.

Follow the guide on how to record videos with virtual backgrounds on Windows 10 and 11:
