Now that you know how to zoom in on a video, you’re probably wondering what other magic you can make in your film. There are plenty of editing techniques creators use to engage viewers, and considering how effortless Runway makes them all, it’s worth your time to experiment with each of them.
- Multitrack audio editing – Using the zoom effect to add suspense? Since the silver screen's inception, composers have been raising goosebumps and riveting viewers through scores, sounds, and songs. Try our multitrack audio editor to overlay dramatic moments with a startling stinger that’ll make every jump scare legendary. Create nostalgia by weaving timely classic tunes throughout your period piece, or introduce your main subject with a bonafide fanfare. Whatever audio your project desires, Runway makes it easy to build a custom sonic landscape.
- Filters – For an eye-catching video, consider pairing your zoom effort with a filter. Zoom into a trippy dream sequence with a black-and-white filter or tap into your protagonist’s subjective experience with a nostalgic, sepia-tinged tone. Or boost saturation for a vibrant pop. Overlay retro transparent patterns, pop-art-inspired colors, and dynamic zoom-ins for a final product that’s as mind-bending as it is inviting.
- Captioning and subtitles – Just as zooming in brings your audience closer, subtitles make your audience broader. Runway’s innovative AI automatically generates subtitles so precisely, that you’ll save hours painstakingly editing your results. You can also easily generate closed captions, which include the background noise as well as dialogue. Getting your work noticed is simpler when even more people have the option to engage, and including subtitles ensures that sound isn’t an obstacle for those looking to experience your work.
Feeling inspired to start video editing? Want to try testing other video effects, such as transition, rotation, slow motion, etc.? Whether you're uploading a YouTube video, Instagram video, TikTok video, or any other social media video, Runway is here to take the nitty-gritty grunt work out of editing by realizing your vision through AI. That means you can spend less time learning how to zoom in on a clip or how to create captions and more time sharing your creative vision.
