All you need to do is select the tool and implement it into your editing timeline. Here are a few we’ve highlighted:

Transitions – If you want to add a bit of creativity to your video, transitions are great to use. Video creators can use compelling transitions like swipe, push, slide, and wipe. For a distinctive look, transitions like circle, diamonds, kaleidoscope and wave can be stylish and fun choices. The video editor has dozens of transitions to choose from. You can choose transitions to fit the ‘mood’ of any video.

- Images – You can add in any image into your video just by adding this overlay. There are additional options to adjust the shape or add borders to your images.
- Zoom and Highlight – Users may want to highlight certain areas of their video. The video editor gives you the ability to highlight or zoom on any area of your video.
- Blur – Users may want to obscure certain details in their video such as people’s faces or personal information including email addresses. You can blur sections of your video with ease just by selecting the Overlay Blur tool.
There is so much you can do with the overlay options in the video editor. Custom-colored arrows, lines, and geometric shapes can also be added. All of these can enhance any video.
