Movavi Video Editor has a great collection of video editing filters and tools – whatever you need to create the perfect clip. To enhance your video with a specially tailored atmosphere, you can apply artistic effects, add a contrast filter, or simply change the color parameters. Whatever you do, the difference will be amazing!

See what effects and tools you can find in Movavi Video Editor:

Flying Objects

Create a joyful or romantic mood by choosing from the wide range of animated effects: Hearts, Gifts, Snowflakes, Stars, Autumn leaves, and more.


Give your video that evocative old movie look with Sepia, Grayscale, Vignette, and other retro effects. Or try the stunning Pop art filters.


Completely change the look of your video: invert, posterize, or sharpen the footage.


Make a blurred video to give the impression of speed, or mystery. Add diffusion, or apply the Tilt-shift effect.


Use mosaic generators of different sizes and styles: simple Mosaic, Glass, or Pixels.


Create a lo-fi effect by adding noise in an appropriate amount.

Automatic and Manual Adjustment Tools

Apply Auto saturation, Auto contrast, or Auto white balance correction. Try the Magic Enhance option to automatically enrich the colors. Adjust the brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, and many other visual parameters manually by moving the corresponding sliders.
