Sometimes your videos or video ideas need a little something extra. Adding some simple effects can do a lot to make your video much more interesting. YouTube can be a great place to find tutorials that are easy to understand and can help teach you so much for free. Here are 5 simple special effect tutorials:
1. GREEN SCREEN
Using a green screen allows you to replace the background of your video with any video or image you choose. Film your subject in front of a green screen, and then use video editing software (in this case we’ll be using Premiere) to replace the green screen with your desired background.
2. COLOR GRADING
Color grading is the process of adjusting the color and tone of your video to create a specific look or mood. You can use color grading to enhance the colors in your video, create a specific visual style, or make it look more cinematic.
3. SLOW MOTION
Slowing down parts of your video can add a dramatic effect and help to emphasize important moments. Most video editing software includes a slow-motion effect that you can easily apply to your video.
4. LENS FLARES
Lens flares are a popular special effect that can add a cinematic quality to any video. They are created by capturing the natural light that enters the camera lens and can be easily added to your video using video editing software or in this case Premiere.
5. MOTION GRAPHICS
Motion graphics are animated elements that can be added to your video to enhance its visual appeal. These can include text overlays, animated logos, or other graphic features that move and change over time.
