With filters and overlays, your creative possibilities are endless. You can dramatically change the look and feel of your video in just a couple clicks.
Wondershare Filmora lets you add as many filters and overlays as you want.
There are three ways to add filters and overlays to a video.
Note: If you are editing a ‘portrait’ (9:16) clip in a 16:9 video, you can add background blur filters to replace the black bars.
There are two ways to remove filters or overlays from your project.
All filters and overlays are sorted into themed categories (i.e. Faux Film or Bokeh Blurs) to make them easy to find. Go to the Effects menu and look to the left of the screen to see the categories and start browsing.
Wondershare Filmora lets you change the duration or opacity of filter effects.
To change the duration
The default length is five seconds, but you can drag the edge of the effect in your timeline to change its duration.
To Change the Alpha Opacity of a Filter/Overlay
The alpha opacity (transparency) property can have a value of 0-100. A lower value makes the filter more transparent. Double click on the filter in the timeline to customize its opacity. Then, you preview how your clip looks with the filter applied to it in the Preview Window.
Right click on a filter effect in the Effects menu and select Add to Favorite. Then, go to the Favorite category to find it again quickly.
