In the third and final video of our video series on how to create professional movies with the Librem Mini and KDenLive video editing app, we’re going to focus a bit on effects and how to apply them to your footage for compelling scene transitions.
There are generally three types of video editing FX:
Filters – These alter the look and feel of your media, similar to how filters are used on social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat
Transform – They change the composition of your media, similar to how filters are used on social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat
Transitions – Presets that control how two videos blend into each other. These bring different scenes and angles together when you need more than a dry cut scene.
There are enough presets and adjustable settings for endless possibilities when making visual content on an open source ecosystem. But don’t take our word for it, check out this commercial for the Librem Mini, made with the Librem Mini.
