Let’s now review the video instruction first:
1. How to Use Scene Detection and Split Video Clips?
A huge video can be divided into numerous pieces in one of two ways: either by cutting the video directly, or by utilizing scene detection.
Video Directly Split
To divide a video, move the cursor over it and either click the scissors icon or choose “Split” from the context menu when you right-click.
Scene detection in split video
Scene Detection may be used to separate videos. Right-click the media file in the media library and choose “Scene Detection” from the menu that appears.
You may use the “Detect” button in the pop-up window to instruct Filmora Video Editor to identify the scenes. Once you’ve finished detecting, all you need to do to eliminate the clip is to choose the undesirable scene and click the “Delete” button. To add the sequences to the Timeline for further modification, click “Add to Timeline.”
How Do You Trim Videos?
Trim the video at the start or the end as desired.
Drag the video onto the timeline. To view the pointer, move the mouse to the beginning or finish of the movie. To cut the beginning or finish of the video, slide the cursor forward or backward after that.
Cut a Video in the Middle
Making a video portion independent is the first step towards cutting it. The video portion may be cut from the original video clip by placing the cursor at its beginning and conclusion and clicking the scissors button. After that, choose “Delete” with a right-click on the video.
3.How Do You Crop Videos?
Drop the video into the timeline and then either use the “Crop and Zoom” button or the “Crop and Zoom” option from the context menu of the right-clicked video. There will be a new window opened.
Verify the video frame in the new window by doing the following: Drag the customized frame over the video to change the aspect ratio to 16:9, 9:16, 4:1, 1:1, or another setting. Click “OK” to preserve the changes after that.
4. How Do You Rotate Videos?
Have you ever filmed films on your phone in the wrong orientation? Never fear! You may flip or rotate the movie to the appropriate degree using Filmora Video Editor.
1. To enter the video editing panel, double-click the video clip on the timeline.
2. Locate the “Rotate” under the “Transform” option. Here, you may move the slide to rotate your movie, or you can write any angle into the empty space.
3. To flip the video, you may alternatively click “Flip horizontal” or “Flip vertical.”
4. View the rotating effects before saving the adjustments by clicking “OK”.
5.How Do You Combine Videos?
You may combine many video clips and photographs into one video with Filmora Video Editor. Drag and drop video clips and photographs to the timeline in the desired sequence to combine them into a single file. They will merge together into a single video when you export them.
6.How Do You Copy and Paste A Video?
You may copy and paste clips using Filmora Video Editor. Also maintained will be the relative spacing (time and track). The duplicated clip can be inserted anywhere in the video or copied and pasted at the conclusion of the track.
1. Choose the desired video clip from the timeline by selecting it with the right click and choosing “Copy.”
2. To add the clip to the video, right-click anywhere on the video and choose “Paste.”
Advice: Copying and pasting video clips onto the video track will just add them there; the original video won’t be overwritten. PIP clip overwrites the original if it is copied and pasted.
7. How Can Video Quality Be Improved?
For the video, adjust the brightness, contrast, tint, and saturation.
To open the Video inspector window, double-click the video clip in the timeline or the “Edit” button above the timeline. After that, you must choose the “Color” option before you can modify the video’s brightness, contrast, tint, and saturation.
Changing the speed of a video
Change the playing speed of a video clip by selecting “Speed and Duration” from the context menu when right-clicking. Then, you may adjust the video speed by dragging the slider on the Speed tab. Depending on your preference, you may adjust the video speed to 0.20x, 0.25x, 0.33x, 0.5x, 1.0x, 2.0x, 3.0x, 4.0x, or 5.0x.
Change the order of the clips in a video track.
To change the clip order on a video track, just drag and drop the clip into the timeline.
Timeline Zoom in/Zoom out
The Zoom in/Zoom out slider is located in the timeline’s right-hand corner. Slide the mouse to zoom in and out of the video. Alternately, you may activate automatic zooming by selecting the “Zoom to Fit the Timeline” button.
8. Video resizing
Three methods exist for resizing videos:
1. To cut the undesirable portion from the movie and lower its size, drag it to the timeline.
2. You may also alter the video parameters, such as resolution, bit rate, and frame rate, in the output window.
3. Cropping the movie in the timeline and then changing the resolution is another method for resizing videos.
If “Auto Ripple” is enabled, a single alteration will ripple to the remainder of the movie to create everything according to your idea. All of the applied effects will be moved together when a new element is added to the project. To unlock the combination, click the “Chain” symbol.
Additionally, you may utilize the ripple edit function to remove ripple without disrupting other video track components. Turn “Auto Ripple” on, choose the clip, and then use the right mouse click and “Delete” command to remove any previously applied effects. The sequence of the other elements will remain the same, and the other elements will not be modified.
10. Add a logo or watermark to your video
Follow these instructions to add a watermark or logo to your target video:
1. To add the watermark or logo image to the Media Library, click the “Import” option.
2. Double-click the image to enter the editing window after dragging the watermark or logo icon to the PIP track.
3. Adjust the logo’s location and size in the Preview window, then expand the “Compositing” menu option in the left panel and adjust the “Blending Mode” to your preferences. Here, you may select “Overlay” and adjust the opacity by sliding the slider.
4. To save all edits, click the “OK” button.
