Working with effects: Filters, Overlay Effects, Look-Up Tables (LUTs)

from the official website.

Movavi Video Editor is a powerful tool for creating and editing videos on Windows and Mac. One of its many features includes the ability to apply various visual and audio effects to enhance your videos and make them more engaging:

Begin by clicking on the Effects icon located at the left sidebar of the interface.

Explore effects categories - Filters, Overlay Effects, or Look-Up Tables (LUTs) – each offering a unique set of visual modifications.

To preview an effect before applying it to your clip, click on the desired option within the chosen category. An instance of the impacted video will be displayed for your review in the player.

Once you've found a suitable enhancement, drag and drop it onto the target clip within the Timeline. A visual FX indicator (represented by an "FX" icon) will appear upon application. You may also apply this effect to multiple clips simultaneously by selecting them first (using Ctrl+click), then dragging the chosen effect to any one of the highlighted segments.

Clicking on the FX icon for a particular clip opens its settings panel, where you can adjust the intensity level using the slider or disable/enable effects. When working with overlay effects, you may also alter their blending modes.

To remove an effect from a clip, click the FX icon on that particular clip and delete the unwanted effect by clicking its cross button .

A Look-Up Table (LUT) is commonly used in video editing and color correction. A LUT, represented as a file with the .cube extension, encodes a set of mathematical transformations that map input values to output values for various color components within an image or video frame. This transformation can result in significant alterations such as enhancing colors, adjusting contrast, or even creating unique visual styles. By applying these predefined LUTs to your projects, you can quickly and effectively apply consistent looks and custom color grades, saving time and effort while maintaining a uniform aesthetic across multiple edits.

Navigate to the LUTs section, click the + symbol and choose files with the ".cube" extension, which represent custom LUTs. These templates will be incorporated into your Movavi Video Editor's library, enabling you to apply them as needed across your projects.
