Add and Customize Filters

Wondershare Filmora enables you to add as many filters as you want. You can add or customize the filters to create a brilliant video.

Add Filters

There are three ways to add filters to a video:

Open your project, go to the Effects > Filters&LUT t tab, and then select the filter that you want and add it to your project.

Add Filters

1 Hover your mouse over the filter or overlay effect you want. When you see a Plus icon in the middle, click it. Then the effect will be added to the timeline.

2 Drag the filter and drop it directly onto the video clip in your timeline that you want to add it to. Effects will be applied to the whole video clip this way.

If you are editing a ‘portrait’ (9:16) clip in a 16:9 video, you can add background blur filters to replace the black bars.

Remove Filters

There are three ways to remove filters from your project:

1 Select the filter in the timeline and hit Delete on your keyboard.

2 Right-click on the filter in the timeline and select Delete from the menu.

Customize Filters

Wondershare Filmora enables you to change the duration or opacity of filter effects.

1. To change the duration

The default length is five seconds, but you can drag the edge of the effect in your timeline to change its duration.

2. To Change the Alpha Opacity of a Filter

The alpha opacity (transparency) property can have a value of 0-100. A lower value makes the filter more transparent. Double click on the filter in the timeline to customize its opacity. Then, you preview how your clip looks with the filter applied to it in the Preview Window.
