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



To create this effect you would be needing various scenes. Make some dramatic shots of different scenes that you do in your daily life. Make sure you record them according to the backdrop and follow the demo.


Put all the created scenes together and arrange them within the timeline in order. In scene 2, add the animation keyframe at the beginning and freeze the idle position of the video. Make sure you separate the other scenes from the editing video.


Right-click on the segment that you just split and add a freeze frame to the video. After the five frames, you can get by using the right arrow. Make it cut once you’re finished.


Get the empty shot from that scene and get rid of the extra clip of that scene. Adjoin the background footage from the previous clip and take the freeze frame video to the top track.


Double-click on the freeze frame and go to the mask to separate it from the background, you can change the position of the mask shape and then use the blur strength to look it more realistic.


Add the animation keyframe to the freeze frame video at the start and use positions X and Y to improve the mask. Add direction blur from the effects to this video and make adjustments to the video.


Find out the scene where the phone shows up to make the cut from the rest of the video and slow the video to the extent to match it with the other video of the tracks.


Here, go to the media menu, and from there select the sample color bar to add the black color backdrop to the timeline. This will create emphasis on the phone and make it look epic.


Use the mask and rectangle shape to the edited clip and then enable the invert mask. This will invert the background of the phone video with respect to the other video to show it up the front.


Go to the other scene which is the green screen clip. Head over to Stock Media for the background video. Select the Anime from the search list. Customize the selected video and make it rotate to 90 degrees and scale in the video.


Add animation to this background video after speeding up the duration and then introduce the Direction blur to this video. Make sure to rotate the animation keyframe to the 90-degrees as well.


Render the background video to make sure the animation keyframing gets in place. This will create a background for the green screen video and place it beneath the recorded video within the timeline. Make sure to customize it for adjustments and a realistic look.


For the last scene video, look for the scene where the phone shows up. Cut when the scene gets completed. Get rid of the rest clips and adjoin the clip to the other scenes within the timeline.


Decorate the overall video by going to the Effects and adding the Shake it Up effect to the timeline above the videos. You can add this effect to other videos at the top of the video track.


Add the elements to the timeline. For that, type Anime into the search box and add Anime Element to the video right on top of the scene videos. Now type Manga within the search box and also introduce it to the timeline.


Add another element to another scene where you have just added the shake-it-up effect. Customize it and then add the Electricity element to the last video within the timeline. Find out the perfect scene and add it on top of the video track.


Add the keyframe animation to the element you just added. Double-click on the effect and add the keyframe with the element and make it from the start.


Lastly, add the effect from the Effects menu and give an epic look to the overall video. Add the effects and customize them by double-clicking on the effect and adjusting the slider. Preview the final video and make sure everything is in place.
