Trying to get a video to look ‘just right’ is a lot of hard work. Normally no matter how carefully you may have planned out and engineered your recording, there’s bound to be a few tweaks, edits and adjustments that you wish you could make to add great video effects.

On top of those edits there’s also other enhancements that you may feel would turn your video into something truly special – whether it is a certain filter or enhancement that could completely transform the feel of the video.

Types of Video Effects in Movavi Video Editor

The good news is that if you’re using the Movavi Video Editor, you’re going to get your hands on over 50 different special effects and filters that you can cut your teeth on – and an additional 65 that can be obtained via expansion packs.

Generally, these effects come in three main categories:

  • Transformation Effects that allow you to crop, rotate, scale, flip, split screen, or add a picture in picture frame to your video.
  • Quality Enhancement Effects that will let you sharpen, filter, adjust, or perform color corrections on your video.
  • Video Special Effects that include ‘Chroma Key’ (i.e. green screen) type special effects along with various other filters, diffuse, add noise, and mosaic options.

Basically between all these ingredients you should be able to transform your video from something fairly mundane into something pretty spectacular. The only question is: How?

How to Use Great Video Effects?

Just like everything else from Movavi, the video effects are designed to be easy to use and user friendly. All you need to do is head over to the dedicated ‘Effects’ tab and select the video effect that you’d like to apply.

Before you actually apply the effect, Movavi will let you preview what your video will look like when it is added, and allow you to tweak the settings of the effect so that it fits your needs. Even assuming it still doesn’t work out, there’s no need to worry since you’ll be able to see all the applied effects later on and add or remove them as necessary.

Inbuilt Options

It won’t be long before you become familiar with the numerous inbuilt great video effects that are included in the Movavi Video Editor, as well as the ones available in the expansions – if you choose to acquire them.
