Kapwing's online effects editor is a fast and free website for adding effects to videos. Start a new project by uploading your videos and images that you want to edit. Use the simple, drag and drop editor to move clips around and arrange on the timeline. Then, try out the special effects options including special filters, animations, chroma key, speed up and slowing down a video. We hope this online effect tool can help make your videos stand out.
There are a variety of different effects that can be applied with the Kapwing editor. These include some of the ones listed below:
Animations: Explore Kapwing's library of video, text, and image animations to bring your media to life. Make your layers flicker, slide up, zoom, fade in or out, or cycle through colors with hue rotate. Choose a custom speed and adjust the timing on your effects to customize the visual appeal. These transitions also make a slideshow of video clips more shareable.
Remove Background: Remove the background of any pre-recorded video beyond live recordings like Zoom or Google Meet. Have a change of scenery by removing your video background and changing it to a serene beach, a coffee shop, or even Lake Tahoe. Choose to change the background to a different image, color, or make it transparent.
Blur Background: Keep your surroundings private and blur the background of your video, image, or GIF. This can be used to respect people’s privacy when recording in public or in a messy bedroom. Adjust the Blur threshold to blur the background more until it’s to your liking.
Chroma Key: Kapwing's Chroma Key editor is perfect for any green screen special effect. Import a green or blue screen video from YouTube, key out the background, and overlay the effect on other video and image layers. This helps with adding special effects like explosions, sparkles, flames, etc. Kapwing also supports transparent animated GIF layers and greenscreen MP4s downloaded from an online marketplace.
Filters and Colors: Adjust the colors in your video using drag and drop sliders. Increase the brightness, saturation, blur, and contrast, apply a sepia or black and white filter, or choose from other pre-set options. We’re planning to add more color effects in the future too!
Speed and Reverse: Add a slomo or timelapse effect by changing the speed of the video. Duplicate the video layer multiple times in a row for a cool looping effect for a short video or boomerang.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
