How to Make POV Gaming Videos?
The first incredible pro-feature of CapCut is letting users edit videos on videos or pictures in pictures. For example, if you are having a gaming channel, you can edit your gameplay video while having a little screen in the corner that shows you gaming. For this, you need screen-recording yourself with a screen recorder. We recommend this top-of-the-line screen recorder.

Now, the question is: what control lets you do so? Well, simply click the video or the photo that you want to insert in the menu besides. Then you can adjust the settings on the right corner of the app.
- How to Use Keyframes in CapCut?
So, what exactly are keyframes? It is the ability that helps to move any kind of text, photo, or video from one point to another point. That’s the simplest way to explain it. On clicking the text button, you will notice different settings appearing on the right side of the app.
Move it to the point you want to add another keyframe, and then select and move the element in the video to the desired location. What’s really cool with this free software is that you can apply keyframes to a lot more elements such as photos.
- How to Add Channel Logos in Capcut Videos?
That’s a pro feature if you are a content creator. Start with searching, downloading, and importing a PNG image of any type of logo into your timeline. Make sure that you choose only a PNG image and not a JPEG, GIF or JPG one.
Tap on ‘Plus/Import’ >> go to ‘Photos’ >> add the downloaded image. Resize and add the logo wherever you wish to. Add text and write the name of your channel/handle. Resize it again, and you are done!
- How to Add Color Grading?
To apply color grading, tap on the video where you wish to add it and select ‘Filters’ from the horizontal menu above. CapCut online has such an extensive list of filters that you wouldn’t get enough of it. Choose the one you like, and move the slider to adjust its intensity.
Go back to the previous menu, and select ‘Adjust,’ which would open other settings to help elevate the aesthetics of your video. Play around a little, pull some tweaks off and create a video that looks beautiful.
- How to Apply the Zoom-In Effect?
This effect is used to highlight what matters in the video you are creating. Start with choosing the video you wish to edit, go to the clip, and split the portion that you want to use the effect. Then on your above right menu click on Animation and select which Zoom-In effect is most useful and you are done!
- How to Add Cinematic Opening Bars?
Cinematic opening bars give you the look of really professional footage, a must try in my opinion.
Select the video you want to add this effect and go to ‘Edit’ >> ‘Effects’ >> ‘Movie’ effect and select which opening bar is best for you.
