Now, there's times when you're cutting a show that you'll want to modify the look of your video. Let's explore how you can apply filters and effects to video clips. To find your effects, you'll look in the Project panel over in the Effects tab. If you click on the Effects tab, you'll see a variety of effects, as well as the transitions that we explored in a previous video. If you look in the Effects folder, you'll see a variety of effects that you can choose from. Everything from fixing the color of an image to stylizing an image to even stabilizing an image.
Now, you can dig through the separate folders to find a specific filter that you know is there. Or you can just use the dialogue box to search for that filter. I'm going to apply a simple black and white filter to this first clip because maybe I want the feel of the show to be, kind of like, 50s or 60s, television cooking shows. So, I'm going to simply type in black. And as you see, I get both a video transition, as well as, my video effects filter. Now, to apply this filter, I can simply click on it and drag it and drop it onto the clip that I wanted to effect. As soon as I drop that filter onto the clip it takes effect. If I wanted to see more detail about this filter, once the clip is selected, I can go up to the Effects Control panel and I can see any parameters that I might be able to modify.
Now, in the case of a black and white clip, you really have no choice. It's either color, or it's black and white. So, in this case, there are no properties to adjust. Now, let's take a look at the next clip, and see what filter we can apply to make that look better. Well, this is one of the tag elements of our show, and the problem is that the pizza doesn't really pop. And it doesn't separate itself from the logo. So, I'm going to drop another filter on here and it's called the gamma filter and it's going to basically make the black levels nice and rich.
Now, once again, if I wanted to find that, I would simply type in gamma and I see that that gamma correction is under Image Control. Now, another way I could apply this filter is if the clip is selected, I could simply double-click on it and the filter would now be applied to that clip. Which you can see in the upper left-hand corner. Now, by default, it does a gamma correction of ten and that may be okay, but I may want to modify that. We'll explore modifying filters in a later video.
