So, viewers, today, in this video, I will tell you how you can use Filmora 11 for the type of text shown on my screen. How can you add it to your video? This means how you can add a water-rippling effect to your video.


After this, you have to go here and add the video in which you want to apply the ripple effect. As seen from "Stock Media," I, for example, need to add a shark video, so I will add only a water-related video because the ripple effect would look better only in it.


So, let's add our video to the timeline. Afterward, we've to go into "Media." From here, move into "Sample Color," and from here, a solid color means I will select a black color which I will add to my timeline.


After this, I will go into "Titles." From here, I will select "Default Title." Thereafter, I add this Default Title to my video. And I will write “Shark.” Afterward, you've to select "Roboto Black" from this and increase its size.

Thus, like this, first, we take its screenshot. Make sure it stays in "PNG" format. So as seen, my screenshot has arrived in the media. So I will delete it from here and add this picture to my this video.


Afterward, to remove this black effect, I will double-click on it and then navigate into "Compositing." Click from "Normal" to "Lighten," and set the opacity to 85%.


After this, now we’ll move into “Effects” like this effect is "Water Ripple," so you've to add to this picture. So like I will show you by playing it. Or if you want to add only the "Water" effect in it, so you can add it as well.


As you can see, the water is getting a lot shaky due to this. For this, you've to double-click on it, then navigate into “Effects,” and here you've to adjust the level. Here you’ve to change its Emboss to 0 and Steps to 3. So here, you can see a water ripple effect like this would be added to your video.


So you can create a beautiful intro for the start of your video or create many other effects like these using Filmora 11.
