For example, The Resolution for youtube shorts is 1080×1080 or 1980×1080.

Clip Controls

So to customize clip properties you have selected the clip and in the top right corner, we have clip controls. You can increase or decrease the scale of the clip by using transform controls or you can use sliders. You can change the clip “position & Rotation“.

You can press the hold “ctrl key+use Mouse Scroll” on the keyboard to zoom in and zoom out of the preview screen. If you notice we have a small screen appear so you can use your “mouse scroll” you can press hold it on the preview screen and you can view something in your video in zoomed-in mode.

In clip controls we also have Canvas. so first I am going to change my aspect ratio to 1080 X 1080 by clicking on “customized“.

now you have to check the “Canvas” if it is not checked and now we have to select the blurred background as you can see it fulfills the gap in the video.

now you can also lower the “opacity” and you will have a Blur background.

Splice or Overlay

now let’s add another clip on top of this video. Now I am going to trim this video by clicking and holding the starting point of the clip and dragging it to the right side to trim the starting point of the video.

 now I am going to place the cursor at the end of the video and  Press “Ctrl+B” it will split the clip where we have the cursor.

now I am going to select the above clip and I am going to Scale it up by using the “transform controls” that are available on the preview screen.

now you can select your clip and you can change its “blend mode” also known as splice mode in the mobile version of CapCut to “hard light” and we will get this double exposure effect.

Add & Extract Audio

If you want to extract the audio of a video then you have to “right-click” on a clip and then you have to select “separate audio“. Now we will have a separate audio file and a separate video file.

So to add audio in CapCut we have to select an audio file we have to drag and drop into media or we can drop it directly in the timeline.

Now you can select your audio file, and you can change its volume you can add fade in, and you can add fade out to your audio you can also remove the background noise from audio or you can even add voice effects to your audio.

Reverse in Capcut

now we have two ways to reverse a clip in Capcut editor so first, we have to “right-click” on a clip we have to hover the cursor to “edit” and then we have to select “reverse” and it will reverse your clip after a couple of seconds.

Or you can select a clip and then you can click on the “play icon” right above the timeline it will also reverse your clip.


So in order to stabilize you have to select your “clip” and in “basic” video properties we have a stabilizer feature. so you have to check to “stabilize” and have 3 levels First we have recommendations, 2nd we have the minimum, and Finally we have the most stable.

You can try each one by one depending on the shakiness of a clip to test which works better for your video.


So in order to use tracking you have to first drag a clip or an element on top of an existing clip. In this example, I have a CapCut logo so I’m going to select the logo and first I’m going to change its position by selecting it on the preview screen and dragging it.

Now go to “tracking” properties and select “motion tracking” and yellow transform controls will appear on the preview window.

Now drag “tracking controls” to a point in your video which you want to track. In this example, I’m going to track this person’s head.

Now click on the “start button” at the bottom of the tracking window. After a few seconds, the tracking is done.

Now we can go to the “basic” properties of the logo and we can change its position and rotation etc.

Chroma Key

So to key out the green screen I have this example. First, select your clip, and now go to Video properties and go to “cutout“, and check the “chroma key“.

Below the chroma key, we have a color picker. Select the “color picker” and select the green screen or chroma key in your video.

 After you select the green screen two sliders will appear “Strength and Shadow“. You can play around with sliders to achieve the best result and you can also “re-select” your chroma key with a “color picker“.

Now in this example, as you can see we have a background wall also so to get rid of that we have to “crop” that part from the video.

Remove Any Video Background

Now if you don’t have a chroma key then you can also remove any video background. Select your “clip” go to video properties and go to “cutout” below the chroma key we have “auto cutout” check it and your background will automatically remove.

Now freeze a frame of a video and place that frame on top of your clip. Now trim the freeze frame where the next clip starts.

Now select the below track clip and “uncheck” auto cutout and We are Done.

Add Background

If you remove the video background or if you lower the scale of the video you can change your video background. So to add background first select your clip and go to the video properties if you scroll down at the end we have the “canvas” feature. Now if you click on “none” below canvas a drop-down menu will appear.

 If you want to add a blurred background to your video then you can select “blur” and in a blur, you can select the strength of the blurred background.

There are so many animations in CapCut but if you want to add custom animation then you can add keyframes to animate. If you look closely at video properties you can spot “diamond shape-like” icons these are keyframes. you can click on it to add a keyframe when it turns blue it means it added.

then go a few frames ahead and change the “slider” of that keyframe to add an animation.

Now if you want to “delete” a keyframe then you can place the “timeline cursor” on that keyframe and then click on that “keyframe” in the properties of its slider and that keyframe will be removed.

now let’s go a few frames ahead and change the border size.

Now if you want to invert the mask then you can click on the invert mask icon right above the mask templates.

Example no.2

Now by using a mask, we are going to create a clone effect so I have this example where I sit on a left chair, and in the next clip I sit on the right chair now we are going to place the second clip on top of the first clip and we can use a “split mask” and we can rotate it to portrait a clone effect.


Adding a transition in CapCut is very simple. first, you must have at least two clips then you have to go to “transitions” properties and here we have several transitions.

so to add a transition you have to place the “timeline cursor” between two clips and you have to select a “transition” that you want to add and that transition will be applied between them.

Now you can customize the transition duration from the properties if you want to.

Now we are going to add multiple effects to create a smooth glitch effect. Now we can add (edgy effect) now I’m going to add (Cut effect) so as you can see it also download your effect if you have not used that effect. Now let’s add (Horizontal Glitch 2).

Now we can trim their duration one by one as shown.

Now if you want to select all these effects at once then we have to select all these effects and right-click and select group.

Now we select one it will select all these effects so we can press “Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V“. Now guys I’m going to ungroup these effects.

Now we can individually change their speed change their properties etc.

Now Split motion blur effect as shown below, and you can play around with blur strength.

Now Goto “Effects” and add “Slanted Blur” Effect.

Now split the slanted effect as shown below and play around with its blur strength and rotation.

Zoom in & Zoom out

So adding zoom in and out is very simple. first, go to the “effects” and look for the “zoom lens” effect.

And if you have any current subtitles then you can also check the “clear Current subtitle” and it will clear all the subtitles and then click on “create“. Now it will automatically create the caption for this audio.

Now you can also edit subtitles afterward as shown below I said “chatgpt” and it writes “JGBT” so we can correct any spelling or word mistake on all the subtitles.

You can also apply a preset, and it will be applied to all the subtitles in the timeline.

Now if you want to change only one single subtitle preset not all the subtitles then you have to uncheck apply to all and select a preset and that change will only apply to that subtitle.

Now at the final, we can select all the subtitles, and we can add an “in-animation” so they start with an animation.


To add a text to speech, you must have a Text Layer, so go to the “Text” add a “Default Text” and type a text.

Now go to the “text-to-speech” and here we have several voices. you can select one to listen to the preview of that voice and if you want to add an audio file of that voice then click on “start reading,” and an audio file will be added to the timeline.
