VideoProc Vlogger Motion Editor
Now we come to a more interesting aspect of the VideoProc Vlogger, that is the Motion Editor. You can say this is the USP of this software. Motion editing allows you to imitate the way your camera actually moves.
It allows you to add the ‘ken burns’ effect aka panning and zooming that will make your slideshows more engaging. You can also incorporate other kinds of motion effects such as wiping or sliding or cinematic opening or closing. Some of its advantages can be listed as follows:
Cropping and reframing
Motion Editor reframes the videoclips to any desirable ratio without impacting the objects in frame. It can also reduce the video size in case it is not compatible with a particular social media platform. It does so while keeping the content of the video intact.
You are free to assign the initial as well as ending status to the video in question without having to deal with numbers and values. What’s more is that you can create amazing motion effects via the software, the likes of which you have only seen on screen.
Controlling the speed
You can control the speed of the video from the built-in effects available in the software. You can do the same by dragging the shape of Bezier Curve. The software enables you to introduce a number of other speed effects and yet make the motion effects look seamless.
Adjust the color range
There are three kinds of color editing that you can add to your video via VideoProc Vlogger Motion Editor. The first is one Hue, wherein you can tune the color from one shade to a completely different one. For example, red to orange to yellow.
The second one is Saturation, wherein you can increase the intensity of the same color. For example, you can change light blue to deep blue and vice versa. The third and final one is Luminance, wherein you can edit the brightness of the video as suggested by the name itself.

Creating the Ken Burns effect
As stated previously, the Ken Burns effect includes a combination of the pan and zoom feature.
- Choose the image or video on which you want to add this effect.
- Click on Motion in the toolbar.
- For adding the Pan effect, drag the playhead where you want the effect to begin from.

Creating the cinematic opening effect

Keyframe 1 and 2 should be kept apart to such a length depending on how quick you want the crop opening effect to be.
To make it faster, the distance should be reduced. If you want the cinematic black bar to be present move the third and fourth keyframe to the point where the clip ends.
Imitating camera shake
It’s possible that you have forgotten to do so while shooting the clip. Nothing to worry though as the Motion Editor can fake a camera shake pretty well.
