Part 1: How to Film and Create your Neon Effect?

Dance videos are very popular nowadays. Be it a small party or large festival, any event is incomplete without dance. That’s why doesn’t matter you are a professional dancer or not, you like dancing with your friends and have fun together.

What’s more interesting is to watch dance videos together spice them up by adding neon effects. Follow these steps to add neon effects to your dance video with Wondershare Filmora:

  • Step1: First of all, you need to film your dance video with HD cameras and video recorders. Dance videos recorded in front of a green screen can be edited easily. It is, therefore, highly recommended to film your dance video in front of a green screen. By doing this, you will be able to key out the background and get a clean outline as shown in the image on the right.
  • Step2: Now, drag your video to the timeline and allow Filmora X to match the resolution to the timeline. Once the video has been placed into the timeline, drag it onto the track about it.
  • Step3: Next, double-click the video, go to the Compositing section, and change the blending mode to difference to get a black background.
  • Step4: Go to Effects, type Pixelated Edges effect in the search bar, select this effect and apply it to the top video. This will outline the edges of the subject. To change your desired color, go to the Video Effects tab and select your desired color. For example, we have picked blue color.
  • Step5: Now, it’s time to export this video. For this purpose, tap the Export button located at the top-right corner, give a unique name to your video, set resolution, and click Export. If you want to export a video with a different color, change the color and repeat the export process. You can export videos in as many colors as you want.
  • Step6: After exporting your videos, delete the video in track 2 and export all your imports in Filmora, and drag all outlines to the timeline. Never forget to offset each outline by a few frames.
  • Step7:Change the Blending Mode to Lighten. You can also add multiple glow effects to your neon dance effect videos and change their radius sizes for more fun.
  • Step8: To save your time, you can copy multiple glow effects and paste them into each color.
  • Step9: Now, go to your green screen video in the first track and apply the green screen effect. Share your neon dance video with your friends and impress them with your editing skills.

In the Customize section on the right side, go to Text Fill, keep the text color white, and select 3D type font style.


Set the following values for 3D text:
Opacity: 80%
Blur: 7


Now, activate the Text Border, select the color of neon light, and adjust the following values:
Opacity: 80
Blur: 10
Size: 5


Next, activate the Text Shadow, select type as the bottom shadow, choose the same neon color as you did for neon text, and adjust the following values:
Opacity: 90
Blur: 10
Size: 7


To finalize the changes, click on OK, copy the text layer, lock it, and paste it above the second video layer.


In the first layer, go four frames forward, split, and again move it four times forward. Repeat the same process 3 to 4 times for animation purposes of the light effect. Do the same thing for the second layer and place empty gaps between the two layers.


Finally, select the first box in the first layer, go to advanced options, and deselect all four boxes. In the second layer, select each box, and adjust the opacity to 60. Repeat the process for all three boxes except the last one. Your animation is now ready!
