Velocity editing is a video editing technique that lets content creators manipulate the speed of clips. This can make your video more interesting and attractive. With the help of CapCut, you can add this effect to your videos. But before you start, it is important to understand the basic steps of this process.

First, you need to select the video clip you want to edit. For CapCut, this can be either from the camera roll or the gallery. After selecting the video, you can either drag the clip or move it up or down on the timeline. Then, you can change the background and filters of the clip. You can also apply white flash effects to your videos. Finally, you can save your edited videos.

Once you have selected the video, you can change its speed. In the left side of the timeline, you will find the “Speed” button. When you press this button, a yellow timestream appears. It is very important to know the difference between a rising line and a descending line. If the line is rising, then the segment of the video is playing faster. However, if it is descending, the segment is playing slower.

Next, you will need to adjust the velocity of the beats in the video. To do this, you need to select the time when the segment of the video starts playing. Using the dots in the spectrogram, you can easily move the dots to place the velocity edit on a particular part of the video. Alternatively, you can use the Match Cut feature to automatically create beats that rhyme with the music.

Once you have decided on the speed of the beats, you can continue to add other effects to your video. There are many options available, including chroma key, overlays, and transitions. Aside from the speed, you can also add white flash to your video. Moreover, you can customize the speed from 0.1x to 10x. And if you are satisfied with your changes, you can save them by clicking the tick button.

If you are not satisfied with the results, you can try to edit it again. Alternatively, you can export your edited videos. Lastly, you can share your videos on social media platforms. If you wish, you can add the white flash effect on your video using the CapCut’s transition feature.

Using CapCut, you can also add filters to your videos. These are available in different categories, from the basic ones to the special ones. Moreover, you can also customize the video’s resolution and bitrate. Other features include the ability to insert multiple points, reverse your video, and split your video. One of the best features of CapCut is that it supports a wide range of devices. Thus, it is easy to operate on your mobile phone and tablet. Hence, it is a popular app for editing videos. Compared to other editing apps, CapCut is user-friendly.

Another great feature of CapCut is the Curve option. This allows you to change the speed of each beat by dragging its dot.
