Wondershare Filmora for Mac provides two ways to help you improve the appearance of a video or image clip by adjusting its current properties like Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation and Speed. Just want to trim/split/cut/rotate/merge video? Check this tutorial.
Double click the image or video clip to activate the Photo or Video Inspector on the Timeline or click the Inspector Button directly. Then drag the sliders to adjust the Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation or Speed of the clip. You can watch the Preview Window to see how the new settings affect the image after clicking OK.
You can also check the Enhance box to activate the Auto denoise and enhance to the selected object.
Note: Click the Reset button to reset the original color setting of the clip.
To change your playback speed, either drag the speed slider or enter the precise speed you want in the speed field. You can also adjust your speed by adjusting the duration of your clip in the Duration field. You can make your video up to 100x faster or 0.01x slower.
You can add still photos to the video track of your timeline. However, if your video project has a 16:9 aspect ratio and your photos don't there will be black bars on the sides of your photos. To remove these black bars automatically, go to your Preferences and select a Photo Placement Fit (Fit, Crop to Fit, or Pan & Zoom). The Crop to Fit feature crops a photo automatically to fit the project's aspect ration, and the Pan & Zoom tool will add a Ken Burns effect. If you want to automatically remove the black bar of just one particular photo, right click on it in the video track and select Photo Placement then Crop to Fit or Pan & Zoom.
Once an image is added onto the Timeline, it has default duration of 5 seconds. But you may want the image to play for a longer or shorter duration. There are two ways to change the duration of the image.
1. Directly drag the length of the image on the timeline to change the duration.
2. Double click the image to activate Photo Inspector and enter the Duration time in the box. You can click "Apply duration to all" to apply the same duration time to all the images in the project.
Motion effect can help you turn any still photo to animated one.
To take a photo snapshot of a video clip and save it as an image file, play the video file and pause the video where you want to take the snapshot. Then click the Snapshot button below Preview Windows. The image snapshot will automatically be added to the Media Library and saved to your working folder.
