First of all, launch the TikTok app on your mobile handsets and click on the plus sign, as usual, to upload a video on to the platform. Select the video of your choice from your device storage or just record a new video to fulfill the uploading process.
The users are recommended to use Portrait mode for recording videos. Now after this, there will be an option at the bottom of the screen named “effects”. Tap on that tab and then you will be able to see various effects in the options which can be added to the live preview of the video.
The live preview enables you to add the effects at certain junctures of the video of your choice and you can also check its working immediately to know the efficiency of the output. The white marker available is utilised for adding the effects if you desire to add the effects on the entire duration of the video then keep the marker at the beginning, or keep the marker at the point from where you want to add the effects.
There are multiple effects so you can view all of them by scrolling left and right on your screens.
