While in this article, we will show you some cool video effects that you can use in Filmora video editor.
Introduction of the Cool Effects in Filmora
1. 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 (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. In Filmora video editor, you can drag the speed slider to get the desired speed or enter the duration of the clip that you need, and Filmora will change the speed accordingly.
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.
4. 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 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!
6. 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.
