Yes, you can add visual effects to videos in your projects. You can slow down, speed up, crop, flip, rotate orchangethe color and contrast of a video. You can also use filters to create noise, smoke, blur, glitch, slow zoom, green screen, and many other effects.
It's also possible to add fade-in and fade-out effects as another type of transition between video clips.
To add sound effects, you can draw from our extensive audio stock library (using premium stock assets is a feature available on the Essentials plan).
We're always improving our editor and adding more effects and transition options.
How to add effects
Step 1. Add the videos to your media library
Create a new video, import or add your video or image files to your media tab, then drag and drop them into the timeline.
To add an effect, first select the video in the timeline. It will be highlighted in green.
Examples of special effects you can add to your videos
1. Slow motion
You can slow down or speed up a video.
You can add a filter to change the appearance of a video, for example, to make a video black and white or more intensely colored, or add noise, smoke, blur, glitch, slow zoom, or green screen effects.
You can also adjust the color balance of a video (the saturation, exposure, temperature, contrast) to make it appear washed out or intense, or add a sepia effect.
4. Flipping and rotating
You can flip or rotate the position of a video, e.g. mirror it or turn it by 90 or 180 degrees.
You can add fade in and fade out of audio or video clips or add transitions.
You can also adjust the duration of the transition as well.
