Filmora - AI Video Editor
Edit Faster, Smarter and Easier!



In this video, we will teach you how to create a luma lyric transition in Wondershare Filmora. First, drop your footage on the timeline, split them, and leave the parts as you like. Then go to the “Stock Media” and drop a black solid color on track 2 at the 4th frame. Split it at the 19th frame and delete the rest of the part. Turn on the "Transform' to add a keyframe and take the solid color out of the screen. Adjust the "Video" "Scale" if required.


Then go to the 18th frame and bring the solid color back to the specific "Position." Then copy this solid color and paste it on track 3. Click on the start keyframe, add a negative sign on the "X" value, and add the negative sign on the "X" value for the second keyframe. Now you can see this is what we want at the start.


Next, we will create lyrics text. Drop the solid black color on track 2. Then, go to the "Titles" and drop "Default Title" on track 3. Change “Font” to “Impact” and change "Font Size" to 300. Enter the first word or lyrics and take a "Snapshot," then enter the second word and take a "Snapshot." Again, take three more snapshots of the lyric word. If the word is too long, you can edit it in the "Advanced" panel and then delete the default title and solid color from the timeline.


Drop the first word on track 4 at the 18th frame. Keep it for 5 frames. Drop the second word and keep it for 5 frames. Do the same for the remaining 4 words. Last, drop the “Popular” word on track and split it at 2 seconds and 9th frame. Select the first word and change “Blending Mode” to “Multiply”. Copy effects and paste them on all the words so all words in "Blending Mode" have changed to "Multiply."


Select the first word "Don't" on the keyframe for transforms. Lock the "Scale" ratio, increase the "Scale" and adjust its "Position" on the visible footage. Change "Scale" to 2100, then go two frames forward and change the "Scale" value to 100 and the "X" value to 100. Add a blank keyframe one frame forward. At the end, set "Scale" to 105.


Then select the second word on keyframes for transform and lock scale ratio. Set "Scale" to 105 in continuation form, and at the end, set "Scale" to 110. Select the third word on keyframes, set "Scale" to 110, and at the end, set "Scale" to 115. Select the fourth word on keyframes, set the Scale to 115, and at the end, set the Scale to 120. Do the same with more words.


Select the “Popular” word on the keyframes and lock the "Scale" ratio. Set "Scale" at 125. Go five frames further, set the scale to 100, then go three frames forward and set the "Scale" at 110. It will create a small pop-up effect. Go 5 frames forward, increase the "Scale" to 1300. Then, after two frames, set the "Scale" to 2200, and our word is gone.


Then go two frames backward, go to the "Transition" and apply the "Leak Light" transition, and keep it two frames long. This will create a nice bright flash before jumping to the subsequent footage. Now, let's see the final preview.
