The Visual Effects panel can be opened by pressing the More button or pressing the L key on a PC or the X key on the Mac.

  • There are several visual effects:
    • Drop Shadow
    • Border
    • Colorize
    • Color Adjustment
    • Remove a Color (e.g., Green screen)
    • Device Frame
    • Clip Speed
    • Interactive Hotspot
  • Video effects are for both images and videos (color, shadow, borders, tint, etc.)
  • Like transitions, when you drag a visual effect to the timeline, clips that it can be applied to will be highlighted in blue, once you hover over a clip, it will highlight in green.
  • You can adjust the starting and ending frames of an effect by dragging the effect on either end of the visual effect bar in the timeline.
  • If the CLIP is selected, the effect properties will be at the bottom of the Properties panel, if the effect bar is selected, only the effect properties will be shown in the Properties panel.
  • You can copy and paste effects between clips by right-clicking on the effect bar and selecting Copy Selected Effects and then select Paste Effects either by clicking on the clip or by right-clicking on the asset on the canvas.
  • You can add multiple effects to a single clip.
  • If you want to apply the Drop Shadow effect to a callout delete the default shadow for the callout first. You have more control over the drop shadow using an effect than you do using the default drop shadow that comes with a callout.
  • You can add a device frame (desktop, iMac,) to give your movie a professional look and feel. All device frames fit a 16:9 aspect ratio with match standard video dimenstions (720p, 1080p). To add a device frame:
    • From the visual effect panel, drag-and-drop the device frame to a clip on the timeline. The default is a desktop monitor with a looping background video. However, you can change it to another device frame (iPhone, MacBook Pro or Google Pixel) in the Properties panel.
    • If you add an animation to a media clip that has a device frame, the both will animate together.
    • If you want to jump from the device frame to full screen, place the playhead where you want to change to take place and then split the clip there. Then remove the device frame from the second clip by clicking on the effect tray at the bottom of the tract and selecting delete.
  • You can add the Clip Speed effect to speed up or slow down a portion of a video OR audio. This effect is typically useful to SPEED UP
    • the video when showing a progress bar
    • a file being downloaded
    • typing a large amount of text (e.g., a long URL in a browser)
    • long page scrolling
  • To create a “green screen” effect:
    1. Create the background layer that you want to show.
    2. Drag-and-drop a clip that has been shot against a green screen (or another solid color) and ensure it is on TOP of the background layer.
    3. Drag-and-drop a Remove a Color effect to the top layer
    4. Use the eyedropper tool in the Properties panel and select the green color (or whatever color that is solid).
    5. You may need to adjust the other options (tolerance, softness, and hue) as necessary.
    6. Scale and move the clip as need (bottom/right corner of the screen is typical for instructional video).
    7. TIP: You can use the invert option to create an animation silhouette.

  • You have a Device Frame effect that you can use to simulate an iPad, iPhone or Mac device.
  • You have the Freeze Region effect that you can add to “freeze” a region until some unwanted action takes place and then you can release it so that you don’t have to re-record a clip. For example, if a notification occurred while you were recording, you can hide the notification.
  • You have the Glow effect that you can add to a clip.
  • You can use the Keystroke effect to AUTOMATICALLY create key stroke callouts. Then, if you open the effect bar, you will see dot that represents where the keystrokes will be added. The keystrokes callout will appear at the bottom/center of the screen; however, you can move it to wherever you want and change it style if you want to.
  • You have the Mask effect that you can add to your clip to “mask” unwanted areas from your scene. For example, if you have a movie with an unwanted object in it, you can mask it out of the video if it is at the same location throughout the video:
    1. Duplicate the clip that you want to mask.
    2. On the top layer, move and resize the bounding box that represents the mask.
  • You have the Reflection effect that you can use to add a “reflection” to your clip.
  • You have the Spot Light effect that you can use to create a spot light effect in your scene. You can also animate the spotlight.
  • You have the Windows Spot Light effect that allows you to AUTOMATICALLY create a spotlight effect on an active window. You can also zoom into the area of the spot light in the Properties panel while retaining the normal zoom level of the rest of the screen. If you scrub the playback head, focus will be set to the next active window if there are any other opened.
  • You have the Sepia effect that you can use to add a “sepia” effect to your clip. This will give your movie an old-movie time look and feel.
