How to Add Effects to the Video

As we are wrapped up with the audio section, let’s move to the visual part of the video. Default color-grading of a video is often monotonous and does not set the needed overtone for a video. Color-grading using professional software is a hectic task. We will use FilmForth’s effects to do just that, providing a much-needed visual flair to the videos.

1. Click on the Effect button, which is located in the bottom feature bar. Over 2 dozen effects will appear on the screen. Click on an effect to apply it to the video.
