How To Duet A Video That You Have Saved From TikTok

The next part of this guide will detail the ways that you can upload and duet a video that you have saved from TikTok to your camera roll. These videos are typically owned by other creators on the TikTok application and will need to be edited in some way to remove watermarks before you upload them to your page.

1. Remove The Watermark Then Make A Side-By-Side Video Collage With PicCollage

PicCollage (iOS | Android) is one of the most popular videos and photo creating/editing software currently available. Using PicCollage, users can make custom side-by-side videos to upload to TikTok. This will simulate the duet function by allowing you to directly pair up any two videos from your camera roll, including videos that you have saved from TikTok.

PicCollage is an easy-to-use application that can not only be used to create duet videos for uploading to TikTok but is also great for photo and video editing. One of the main editing functions of the PicCollage application is the watermark removal tool that comes with the paid version of the application.

You can use this watermark removal tool to remove any obstructions from the video that you have saved from TikTok. Pic Collage can be found in the app store of your mobile device for free and offers in-app purchases to unlock more features.

2. Remove The Watermark Then Make A Side-By-Side Video Collage Using An Online Tool

Another great application for creating duet-style videos with saved content from TikTok is the Animoto app. Animoto is similar to PicCollage and offers a ton of different video and photo editing features. Animoto is free to download in the app store of your mobile device and can be used to easily create duet-style videos with your saved TikTok content.

To do this, you will need to first download and install the Animoto app from your phone’s app store. Once you have done this, open the application and tap Create Video in the center of your screen.

You can add music, photos, or multiple split-screen videos to your current Animoto project. You can also add custom text, watermarks, and many other photo alterations while setting up your Animoto video for use with the TikTok application.

Once you are satisfied with your video, you will simply need to tap Save And Produce Video to have the video compiled, processed, and saved to your camera roll. Once it is in your camera roll, you can simply upload it like you would any normal video on TikTok, but it will already contain the split-screen duet feature that you made in the Animoto application.

Before you will be able to access this video in your camera roll, you will first have to create an Animoto account. You can do this by entering in your information manually or using Facebook to log in. Once you have successfully created an Animoto account, you can upload the content you create using the app using the following method.

First, make sure that you have saved the Animoto video you have made to your phone’s camera roll. You can ensure this by tapping on the video that you have created and clicking Play. Once the video has finished playing, you will be presented with the option to save it to your camera roll.

Once you have saved the video that you wish to upload to TikTok to your camera roll, you will need to open TikTok on your mobile device and tap the + icon. This will bring up the upload menu options. Click Upload and find the video that you wish to upload to the TikTok application.

Edit the video using TikTok’s editing feature if you wish and then tap the Post option. Once you have done this, you will have successfully uploaded the video that you made on Animoto to TikTok.

Using the Animoto application to make duet-style videos can give you much more control and editing capabilities that are natively included with the TikTok application.

Other Ways

If for some reason you cannot get the duet features to work properly with one or more of your videos, these methods could help you work around these issues.

1. Use Green Screen Filter To Talk On Top Of The Video Playing In Background

The green screen filter is a visual effect that comes included with the TikTok application. Using the green screen filter, users can make the background of their video anything that they want, including other TikTok videos.

Once you have selected the green screen filter for use, it will automatically be applied to the video you are currently creating. It will prompt you for a photo or video from your phone’s camera roll to apply to the background.

Choose the video you wish to duet and confirm the selection. You should see the video playing in the background of your video. You will now be able to add any additional commentary or other video elements that you wish before uploading it to the application.

2. Upload Video Normally And During Editing Talk/Narrate Over Video

Another way that you can simulate a duet on TikTok with a video is to simply upload the video like you normally would and during the editing, stages add a narrative. You can add voice clips to TikTok videos that you upload on top of the audio that is playing in the video.

The TikTok Voice Over feature is another extremely popular feature that TikTok offers its users. The Voice Over tools is located in the TikTok video editing tools that can be found in the menu on the right side of the video editing screen.

To use the voiceover tools, you simply record your TikTok video as your normally would and then continue on into the video editing screen. Once you are on the video editing screen, tap the Voiceover button in the corner. This button will be represented by a microphone icon.

This will allow you to select a portion or all of the video to record a voice-over for. Find the place you wish to start the voiceover in the video and tap Record. Once you have finished recording, you will be presented with some voiceover options like adding effects and volume.

Confirm your voiceover settings and continue with the TikTok video uploading process as normal. Once you have finished, you will have successfully uploaded a video with a voiceover. This can be a good alternative to a duet if you simply wish to provide additional commentary on a video.

The voiceover settings can be used with all types of TikTok uploads, including videos that you have saved from TikTok to your camera roll.
