How to Split a Video into Smaller Clips
There are a variety of different effects that can be applied with the Kapwing editor. These include some of the ones listed below:
Animations: Explore Kapwing’s library of video, text, and image animations to bring your media to life. Make your layers flicker, slide up, zoom, fade in or out, or cycle through colors with hue rotate. Choose a custom speed and adjust the timing on your effects to customize the visual appeal. These transitions also make a slideshow of video clips more shareable.
Chroma Key: Kapwing’s Chroma Key editor is perfect for any green screen special effect. Import a green or blue screen video from YouTube, key out the background, and overlay the effect on other video and image layers. This helps with adding special effects like explosions, sparkles, flames, etc. Kapwing also supports transparent animated GIF layers and greenscreen MP4s downloaded from an online marketplace.
Filters and Colors: Adjust the colors in your video using drag and drop sliders. Increase the brightness, saturation, blur, and contrast, apply a sepia or black and white filter, or choose from other pre-set options. We’re planning to add more color effects in the future too!
Speed and Reverse: Add a slomo or timelapse effect by changing the speed of the video. Duplicate the video layer multiple times in a row for a cool looping effect for a short video or boomerang.
