Add filter to video in three steps

Whether you want to make your footage look older, more vibrant, toned-down, or just better, you can do it by adding filters. They can make a small shift to highlight what you want or totally change how people see your content.

So how do you add them to your clip? Many people use expensive video editing software to create custom effects. But this takes a lot of time — and the software is very expensive.

Why not do it online? Clideo gives you access to over a dozen different effects with no download. You don't even need to open an account.

Let's take a look at how to add filters to videos with the app. It just takes three simple steps:


  1. Add a file to the online app

    Head to the Online Video Filter App by Clideo, then click "Choose Files." Use your Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS device to pick the movie you want.

    Upload a video you want to add filter to

    You can also click the buttons below to upload a clip from Google Drive, Dropbox, or a URL.

    The app supports a huge range of video files, including MP4, WMV, OGG, FLV, and more. No matter what device you're uploading from, you should be able to load your movie.

    Once Clideo has loaded up your file, you can start using the tool's free video filters.


  2. Add a filter to your footage

    In the center of the screen is a preview—you can use it to see what your video will look like after you've applied an effect. On the right side are your options. Watch what happens when we click on the "Japchae" thumbnail:

    Just like that, you've put a filter on your video. Look at the difference a single effect makes! There are tons of different color options, as well as some more striking ones like black and white and sepia.

    Here's what our sample looks like in black and white:

    Try to add other filters to your video to choose the best one

    Because you can preview a filter with a single click, you can try as many as you want before downloading the final result.

    Try different effects and watch them in the preview window to see exactly how your footage will look. When you've found the right one, you're ready to take the next step.


  3. Save and download your video

    When you get the look you want for your clip, you're ready to save it.

    Before you do, though, you can choose the file format that the video will be in. Use the dropdown menu in the bottom-left corner to choose from popular formats like MPEG, MP4, AVI, and more.

    Change the video format if you need

    Once you've chosen the best format, hit the "Filter" button in the bottom right. Clideo will process for a moment and then tell you that your file is ready to download:

    Download your video with filter

    Now you can share it on Facebook or Instagram, send it to other devices, or do anything else you'd like.

    If you have a Clideo account, you can also save the file to our servers, making it easy to access from another device. We only host it for 24 hours, so you don't have to worry about storing your movie in an insecure place.


Filter your footage how you want

Now that you've seen how to use our online video filter app, you can tweak any number of clips so they look exactly how you want them to. You can make your videos look similar to develop a signature style, or apply a new effect to every movie. The options are limitless!
