Make Overall Changes Quickly

The adjustment layer allows you to apply the same effects to multiple clips or across the whole timeline. You can enhance video editing efficiency without adjusting each clip individually.

No destructive Adjustments to Original Clips

Place effects into the adjustment layer rather than directly change the underlying clips to gain more flexibility in video editing. Want to try out different effects? Hide or discard the adjustment layer to revert to the original edits without undoing all things later.

Make Adjustments with Preset/Custom Settings

Filmora offers 18 preset blend modes to help you change color tones quickly. You can also customize parameters to achieve various visual effects and add keyframes to animate them, like resize, reposition, rotate, etc. Your custom settings can be saved for future use.

Wide Range of Applications

How many effects can be added to an adjustment layer?
There is no limit to the number of effects applied to one adjustment layer. Filmora gives you the flexibility to use the adjustment layer feature as you wish.
