 Let’s discuss the 5 awesome tricks that elevate your speed in video editing.

FACE ENHANCE

The first and foremost trick in this list is about enhancement the of facial features which is mindblowing. Most video editing apps do not have this funny and matchless feature. Due to this feature face of any object can be edited within the frame. This feature gives you many possibilities to edit any subject’s face.

After using one of the options and editing you will notice this result is awesome and quite funny. To do this process first you need to select your object then click on the video panel on the top right side of your screen and select the Enhance section. There you need to select the Face section and then choose several faces you want to edit either single or multiple. 

Here you have multiple sliders to play with, use your desired option, and make a mess with anyone’s face in a quite funny manner. Here you will some seriously good features like smoothness, brightness, skin tone teeth brightness, and evenness with the help of these options you can make your desired object.

Furthermore, if you explore the “facial beauty” section, you can make particular changes in the face e.g you can change face thinness m, make face fat, shorten the teeth, chin size changing, make bigger eyes with very small eyebrows or any other changing you want you can make with extreme ease. It’s a very cool feature and gives a funny look to anyone’s face.

CAPTIONS

Capcut is smart enough to transcribe your videos and can make captions on its own. sometimes we try to find a meaningful and appropriate caption and spend some valuable time on this activity and sometimes we also fail to find a good caption so in my opinion, it is a time-saving feature. 

Captions are also important and with the help of them, our videos got ranked on Social Media platforms. 

To utilize this feature, you need to follow these steps.

  • select your clip from the menu bar
  • select the “text” section 
  • click on “auto-captions”. 
  • Select your language from the preferred language section
  • Select “Create”

You will observe that within seconds Capcut will generate the most suitable caption for your video automatically. 

In this feature, there is another option to edit text style. 

To utilize this feature, you need to follow these steps.

  • Go to the menu bar
  •  select “text”
  • Adjust the size, style, font, or color of the text

This feature decreases the workload and works automatically in a quite professional way.

EFFECTS

It is an extremely brilliant feature of CapCut and makes life so easy for content creators. Due to this feature, CapCut has an edge over many other video editor software as it takes your video to another level To utilize this feature, you need to click “effects” on the menu bar at the top of the screen and then you will find a great, beautiful and impressive library of different video effects. 

On top of that app developers keep updating them with trending effects that are popular on different social Media platforms. Click on the effect, and it will give you a preview of your video with that effect, if you are happy with the effect draw it on your timeline to use. On the right side of your screen, you will see increasing and decreasing options for the properties and different effect features. 

Now we will discuss body effects, its functionality is similar to face-enhancing effects as we have already discussed in this article. It can recognize your body and put certain effects on it.  A useful suggestion is to organize your timeline more neatly, if you wish to avoid multiple effects overlapping, apply the effect directly to the clip rather than stacking them individually on the timeline. 

This way, the effect will be applied to the entire clip uniformly. Move the slider from the beginning and ending point of the particular part of the clip so we can adjust the duration of the effect.

CUTOUT

Green screen effects are another cool feature that enables you to finish your work within minutes and hassle-free. It is an impressive feature.  Capcut can remove the background from any video and for that, we do not need an expensive Green screen. 

To use this feature in CapCut go to the right side of the screen and select the “cutout” option. Then click on  “auto cutout” and Capcut will work in seconds and you will get a Green screen or solid Background. However, it can fail sometimes but the majority of the time it does work in a very good way. 

After removing the background you can put your desired background like some sort of greenery, mountains, beach, or sunset moment. Here the ball is in your court.

You can navigate to the “basic” section located on the right-hand side of the screen. From there, click on “canvas” to access a variety of backgrounds, ranging from solid colors, gradients, and styles, to textures. 

Capcut offers a diverse range of options to choose from, but you also have the flexibility to create your custom background.

SHORTCUTS

This is the most important and mindblowing trick to speed up your task even it is my experience shortcuts boost the speed of any work done. Capcut provides keyboard shortcuts on all versions of every operating system that CapCut supports. 

From the help bar of CapCut, all shortcuts have been written for our assistance. Another good thing is that CapCut’s Shortcuts are majority of the time similar to the other video editing software and if you are a user of any other video editing software and are using shortcuts there then you do not need to put an extra effort to use shortcuts here.
