One of the prominent trends on TikTok consists of using CapCut to add the CapCut 3D Zoom effect to images and then organizing them in a video.

Once you've installed the CapCut app, please open it and upload 11 photos to the editing timeline. Then, click Style and add a 3D zoom effect to all of your images.
