Wondering if there is any ways I can change the background

This answer was rated:

Wondering if there is any ways I can change the background of my video. Please note, I didn't use the green background when I was recording this video. But it is almost impossible to record it again, because I did the recording overseas.
JA: What OS X (Operating System, e.g. Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, etc.) or iOS are you runninng?
Customer: OS X El Capitain Version 10.11.3 I noticed in the just answer conversation that Ashik, Mac Technician, offered to change the background for someone. Is there anyways I can get in touch of him so he can help me fix my videos as well?
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: My mac is un-to date with all the update. But I don't think iMovie has the feature to change background if you don't have green background
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: would you please transfer me to Ashik, Mac Techician
JA: Anything else you want the Mac expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Please connect me with Ashik, Mac Technician

Hey there, I'm Tim....are you saying you did a green screen video with a background that you want to change?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No. If that was the case, I know how to change the background. But the video, I already recorded does not have a green screen. And I need help on how to change the background of my video that was recorded without a green screen.

Gotcha, as far as i know there is no way.....i'll opt out and let others take over.

On another just answer tread, someone called Ashik, Mac Technic***** *****ged a background for someone. Can you see if you can transfer me to him if he is still available? the conversation was 7 years ago though. Thanks for your time Tim,

Hello there, It's me Ashik. I'm sorry. You can't change the background with iMovie in this case. For that, you need pro apps like Adobe After Effects etc and use them to cut bacground manually on each frame which is time consuming process. I no longer have access to these applications. Sorry about that.

You can contact***@******.*** to cancel this question and for refund.

Best Regards,
