How to make duet videos with yourself on Tiktok?
Along with performing duets with other people, you can also duet with yourself on Tiktok. Trust me this isn’t as dumb as it may sound since you can perform two different sides of a track. Make a sketch of you playing two different characters or any other kind of performance. Where you can play two parts, mirror off of each other, or whatever else you like.
Duet with yourself on Tiktok
Making a duet video is as easy as making a normal video in the Tiktok app. As usual as ever, preparation is key to everything. Make sure your video is prepared, rehearsed, and looks and sounds as good as it is possible to be. Then, you can start recording any video. Follow these easy steps mentioned below to start recording duets with yourself.
Step 1: Launch the Tiktok app and create your first video.
Step 2: Next, go to the video you recorded and with which you want to make a duet.
Step 3: Select the ‘Share’ icon and click on the ‘Duet’ button at the bottom of the screen. Your screen should split up in two vertically by now.
Step 4: Click on the ‘Record’ button again to record the second side of the video.
Step 5: Now, you can add comments, stickers, effects, or whatever and publish the video.
You can see, recording a solo duet video on Tiktok is actually quite similar to recording any kind of video on the app. It’s just a case of preparation, recording, and editing. Only this time, you have to do everything twice.
Making duet videos was a part of Tiktok, long time before this feature was even introduced. The only thing is earlier you would have to each video and join them on your computer before you upload it. Now, you can do all this within the app itself and the bonus is you can even perform minor edits as you go. It just got simpler and efficient.
Clone yourself and duet on Tiktok
Along with performing two videos and having a duet with yourself, you can even clone yourself. Sorry Android users, but this app is only available on iPhone and iPad as far as I know. iPhone users can use a clean and neat app called Video Star. It allows its users to record different videos and add them as layers. I came to know about this online when asking about duet videos. And someone said there are some clever videos on Tiktok that have used this cloning technique to create a great effect on the videos.
The idea is much the same as duets. Just this time you have to record just as many videos as you need for your clone in different positions. For this, you can use the camera on your phone instead of the one in Tiktok. You can also record from within the Video Star app if you prefer.
Step 1: Record as many videos you want to use in your clone. Remember to use different positions with a mind on the kind of end product you want when you record.
Step 2: Import your videos into the Video Star app.
Step 3: Use the ‘Scissors’ tool on the Video Star app to join your videos and select ‘Multi-Layer Clip.’
Step 4: Use the ‘Mask’ tool to add your videos so that each shows a clone of you within the mainframe.
Step 5: Edit your videos, add any filters, effects, change the shape of the layer as you need.
Step 6: Select ‘Done’ when you are finished, import the video on Tiktok and share as normal.
I should inform you that you have to pay to use the full power of Video Star. The process seemed quite simple. You can certainly figure it out if you try it.
Change who can duet with you
Tiktok gives everyone the ability by default to create duet videos with the videos you uploaded on your profile. But, did you know that you can stop other users from creating a duet video with your videos? This portion of the article will show you how.
