Cool Effects to Make Your Videos More Stunning

By Jan 20,2016 16:07 pm

Are you already tired of the plain and ordinary video editing effects? Do you need some special cool effects to make your videos more stunning and absorbing? Here is a list of some amazing effects which you can make full use of.

Introduction of the Cool Effects

Split Screen Effect

The split screen effect, also known as picture-in-picture effect or video overlaying, is the effect of showing two or more video streams at once in a give sequence. It's a creative way to tell a story by showing multiple viewpoints.

Fast Motion

Fast motion (or time-lapse) is a creative way to show the progression of a project. This effect makes your video appear to have occurred at a faster speed than normal, thus it will speed up to show the entire process in a matter of minutes or seconds.

Slow Motion

Slow motion, however, makes your video appear to be slowed down. This effect can enhance the emotional and dramatic moments like wedding ceremony, birthday party or flashback scenes.

Jump Cut

Jump cut is an abrupt break in the continuity of a video scene created by editing out part of a shot or scene, which gives the effect of jumping forwards in time. By applying this effect, you can make your video feel like as if it moves at a faster pace.

Tilt-shift

Tilt-shift effect or miniature faking is a photographic genre which seems to become popular nowadays. This effect is always applied in the videos or images which are taken from far distance to give you a birds-eye-view perspective. So if you want to make the video look as if it's shooting a model set not a real world, try this great effect!

Pan and Zoom

Pan and Zoom effect, also known as the famous Ken Burns effect, allows you to focus on certain parts of your video, such as zooming in on a person's face, or scenery. That will create movement and evoke emotional storytelling experiences to your video.

Pan/Zoom is so common, really, why the lack of functionality? This software is not user friendly. I spent several hours fumbling through it making a video with compromised quality and then Filmora slaps a big watermark across it making it useless unless I buy the software. What a horrible first experience with Filmora. Purchase? No, I'll pass

Another frustratingly vague and ultimately unhelpful Filmora Tutorial. Why mention Pan/Zoom if you're not going to explain how to do it?

These instructions still doesn't explain how to do a smooth pan & zoom. It only explains the effect, but not how to do it. I have the newest version of Filmora 6.6.0
