Eye Zoom Transition Effect – Wondershare Filmora X
Another great example of how you can pull off what is a reasonably complex effect in a fairly simple video editing program like Filmora.
It takes a few steps but the results look great.
Practical Effects 101
An excellent walk though here of designing and putting together a practical effect that is almost fully done “in camera.”
Of course the final tweaks and polishes are done in video editing software but the bare bones of the effect are all in the shooting.
Just about anyone can pull this off the way it is done in the video but having said that you are probably going to need video editing software with a slightly more advanced feature set like Pinnacle Studio or CyberLink Director Suite 365.
There is only one part of this entire process that your camera and editing software can not execute.
That part is of course… imagination. That bit is up to you.
Is Unreal Engine the Future of Filmmaking?
Well I don’t know if it is truly going to be the “future of filmmaking” but what I do know is that for a free piece of software it is pretty amazing!
I haven’t gone into it too far but I am guessing you are going to need a pretty hefty computer setup to run this thing!
Anyway the results are spectacular and well worth checking out.

Maybe you can fare better with this tutorial.
Got Video Editing Questions? Ask Me Live!
Another good live stream from Daniel Batal this week covering some advanced techniques using Filmora.
A great point to remember when you watch these videos is that the software he is using is not itself particularly advanced.
Filmora is an excellent, well equipped little editing program that is not designed to pull off super advanced techniques.
However that being said, if you know what you are doing to can get it to do some pretty complex things.
The key datum here is “if you know what you are doing!”
