WHAT ARE PAPER EFFECTS?

Paper effects are creative elements for your videos to be used during post-production, where paper is the focus or source of inspiration.

They are creative transitions and overlays, in the form of different papers. You can add elements of texture or enhance the feel of your video by using various types of paper video effects. This may help combine different shots with a paper motif or simply add a different dimension of storytelling.

TYPES OF PAPER EFFECTS FOR VIDEOS

Money Effects For Videos

This is probably one of the most popular paper video effects packages that we have to offer.

The Money effects package comes with 50 different stop-motion effects. Every single one of the money effects comes in 4k, pre-keyed out, and on a transparent background. Each animation has been created to be dragged and dropped in place. There is no need to worry about small technicalities.

Ripped Paper Effects For Video

Similar to the Money effect package, the paper rip package delivers easy-to-use and high-quality effects.

HOW TO USE PAPER EFFECTS IN YOUR VIDEOS

Paper video effects add an abstract understanding of your video’s creative vision. This can be done by using the paper effects as borders for your video. This already adds an almost experimental aspect to your video, as you frame a video inside a frame.

You can also use them as overlays. The paper video effects can be used as a motif - joining two different images with an overlay. This communicates a unique message to your audience. Moreover, you can use them as transition points or animations to your film.

In short, the capabilities of using paper video effects reach as far as your creativity. They are what you make them!

TIPS FOR USING PAPER VIDEO EFFECTS

It may be tempting to run away with these effects and add in as many as your heart desires. But, well-placed effects with a cohesive theme have a bigger impact than an overload of effects, which can be confusing for viewers. Your audience will definitely appreciate quality over quantity!

So, our three best tips for using paper video effects are:

  • Plan for the effects. Understand why you have placed the paper effect in the video and why. How does it relate to the theme of your video? How does it enhance your video?
  • Consistency is key. Make sure that your effects correlate with one another. Instead of using the effects sporadically, make sure they tell a story. This will help your audience connect the effects to the video, and present a unified piece of art.
  • Don’t overuse it. A well-placed effect is better than 50 random effects. If you overuse the effect, your video and your message may get lost.
