If you are using TikTok, you will have realized how important filters are on videos. They are used to tell stories of all kinds and make videos much more interesting. So let’s see what they are and how to create the effects on TikTok.
When I talk about effects, I am not referring to filters that can be applied but to real masks that add virtual elements to what the camera sees. Or maybe they’re going to modify (for the better but also for the worse) the framed faces.
In this guide, I will show you what they are and how to create filters on TikTok using the specific Effect Creator program.
What are the effects and how to use them?
Surely you have already seen this type of effect on Snapchat and Instagram.
When recording a new video, you can select the effects by clicking the smiley face at the bottom left. You can browse the effects divided by category and save your favorites for future use.
Why create filters for TikTok?
You can create filters and share them with all users of the platform. But why do this?
To entice users to create new effects, TikTok offers advantages to the “Effector” or those who will create and publish the effects.
Some advantages of an Effector are:
Get verified as an Effector
Access to private marketing campaigns, to reach millions of followers
Awarded and collaboration with brands.
How to create effects on TikTok
If with this short introduction you have convinced yourself to become an Effector, follow the steps.
What is the TikTok effect creator?
TikTok provides a totally free development environment, from which you can go to create custom effects.
You can download it on both macOS and Windows. Once installed, you can start using it without registering. The graphical interface is simple and intuitive; click create a project to get started.
It is not enough to add filters to your photos; You should have massive followers who see your posts. If you are struggling in this area, get comments and TikTok fans and enjoy stardom.
This is the interface that appears when you create an egg project. By accepting permission to access the camera (if available), you can develop the filter by testing it yourself. Alternatively, you can use default photos like the one you see in the image above.
To get started, click Add in the upper left and select the type of effect you want to create. There are various effects, from the banal distortion of the face to the color of the hair, the mirror, etc.
Depending on the type of effect you add, you can make local changes, adjust the effect, and the intensity it will have.
Once you’ve created what your effect layout is, you can configure events. Events will allow you to control the duration of the effect in time or the actions the person must take to activate / deactivate the effect (such as blinking).
Once you have adjusted all the settings, you can proceed to the approval phase by clicking upload in the upper right.
At this point, you will need to enter your phone number to log into TikTok. You can then start the approval process.
