Saving Sounds:


When you come across a sound that sparks your creativity, you can save it for later use. Simply click the “Add to Favorites” button (bookmark icon) next to the sound. This action will store the sound in your “Favorites” section for quick access in future videos.

Experimenting with Effects:


The effects function on TikTok allows you to enhance your videos in two distinct ways: adding effects before recording and applying effects after recording.


These effects can only be applied before you start recording, allowing you to creatively transform your video’s appearance and style from the very beginning. Have fun with effects by following the below steps:


1. Access Effects:

Before you begin filming, you’ll see a an ‘Effects’ preview button on the bottom left corner. Click on ‘Effects’ to access a wide variety of special effects.


2. Preview Effects:

Tap on an effect thumbnail to preview how it looks on your camera. You can see how the effect alters your surroundings or adds elements to your video.


3. Select and Apply an Effect:

Once you’ve found an effect you like, tap on it to select and apply it. Some effects might require additional interactions, like tapping the screen or making specific gestures.

Using effects after recording allows you to fine-tune your video’s visual elements, create engaging transitions, overlay text or stickers, and adjust colors to make your content more captivating and memorable. It’s an opportunity to add a personal touch and unique flair to your TikTok videos during the editing process. Here’s how to use effects after recording a TikTok video:


1. Access Effects:

Once you’ve recorded your video, you’ll be taken to the editing screen. Tap on the ‘Effects’ icon (twinkling stars) on the right side of the screen.


2. Apply Effects:

To apply an effect, tap on the effect thumbnail and start editing. Depending on the effect, you might need to adjust settings or parameters to customize its appearance.

With TikTok’s rich collection of sounds and effects at your disposal, you have the tools to create captivating videos that stand out from the crowd. Saving sounds and effects empowers you to save time during video creation and maintain consistency across your content. So, start exploring the Sound Library, experimenting with effects, and get creative with your TikTok videos. Happy TikToking!
