5 TikTok Results That Will Take Your Movies to the Subsequent Stage
Creators on TikTok are some of the most resourceful people out there. They make you laugh with elaborate skits, impress you with incredible makeup tutorials, or get you to think inside yourself when they bring up important topics.
One of the things that make their videos so compelling is the use of TikTok’s built-in effects. If you’re looking to gain a huge following on this platform and create videos that will go viral, then it’s time to familiarize yourself with the most popular and cool effects in the app.
What are TikTok Effects?
Since TikTok has so many features, it’s easy to get lost in the app. We start with the basics.
It is important to distinguish effects and filter. Filters are similar to those on Instagram. You can change the color of the video, play around with the lighting, and change the depth to name a few. You can add these before or after filming the video.
There are two types of effects in TikTok: those that you can add before recording and those that you can add later. The former is usually funnier and more creative, you can add objects to the frame, change your background or even your face, all in real time. The latter is more related to editing and includes things like transitions, slow motion, and zoom effects.

How do you use TikTok effects?
To add effects before recording, tap the + Sign at the bottom of the home screen and then click the effects Icon bottom left. There will be several sections with effects such as: New, Trending, and Strange. When you tap an effect, it is applied in real time on the recording screen. Some effects also give you instructions on how to use them.
To use the editing effects, stop recording your video and click checkmark Icon at the bottom right and select effects at the bottom of the editing screen. You are given a number of effect options that you can use to edit your video.
If you know the name of an effect but can’t find it in the Effects menu, do a general one Discover Seek. Then select a video that uses the effect you want. You will see the effect “linked” in the video; tap it, then press Try this effect out.
There are plenty of other things you can do after shooting, such as: B. adding subtitles to your TikTok videos or creating a voiceover. For now, however, we’ll focus on the visual effects, how to use them, and how they add to your videos.
1. Green screen
This is probably the first effect you’ll see when you open the Effects menu, as it’s usually on-trend (for good reason). You can change your background to any picture you want or even add a video as a background.
TikToker often use it to create reaction videos. For example, if you want to reply to a Twitter feed, take a screenshot of it and put it in the background. Or if you want to talk about something that happened in another video, upload this video with this green screen. They can also be layered while singing to harmonize with yourself.
There are several green screen effects that you can play around with. Indeed there is a whole Green screen Section in the Effects menu.
2nd clone trio
Are you a dancer who wants to show off your chops? Or maybe you just enjoy taking part in TikTok dance challenges. Either way, this effect can be for you.
It creates two clones behind you that do the exact things you do. This creates the illusion that you are dancing as part of a group – and it’s a pretty compelling illusion.
To use it, look for the pink icon with three pictures on it. Tap on it, add your desired music and perform your dance.
3. Slow zoom
If you feel like you are the main character in your story, TikTok has the perfect effect for you. Slow zoom brings the camera closer and closer to your face without you having to do anything. It creates the illusion of a director listening to your reaction.
To find this effect, look for an icon with a face and four arrows pointing to it. After tapping on it, you can choose how long you want the zoom to last – 10, 15, or 30 seconds. Then you can add an intro or outro to make the video more interesting.
If you are looking for other types of zoom effects, check out the editing effects that you will apply after recording your video. There you will find fast zooms and transition zooms.
4. Beauty effects
There is a lot of talk about how social media changes our perception of ourselves and creates impossible standards of beauty. Beauty effects play a huge role in this, so use them with caution. Some of these effects completely change your face and basically create a new person.
However, they can come in handy if you don’t feel like putting on a full face just to shoot a video. They can also help you create different characters for a video. All options can be found under the Appearance Effects menu tab. Our favorite is this fake tailcoats.
5. Split screen
Similar to Clone trio Effect you can use the Split screen if you want to start some kind of “dance crew”. You can split the screen into two, three, or even nine and create your dance video. You can also use this effect to create a cinematic feel, similar to a film montage.
The icon looks like duplicated images of an airplane. Once you tap on it, you’ll be able to choose how many screens you want to create. You can also use it in the editing effects after recording your video. it is located in the Splits Tab.
Enhance your videos with awesome TikTok effects
Since TikTok lets you create videos that are anywhere from 15 seconds to three minutes in length, you don’t have to stick to just one effect. You can start and stop the recording multiple times and select a new effect for each section.
There is so much more to explore than what we mentioned here, but these are some of the most popular effects on the app right now. So why not try them out? It could go viral!
