Learn how to create customizable shapes with keyframe control. Enter the ‘Video Overlay Room’ and click on the shape icon. Select and click on any shape of your choice to start designing it. Adjust the size of the shape by dragging the points by the edges. You can modify the shape by adjusting the yellow control points, and rotate the shape with the green control point. Lastly, reposition the shape by dragging it around the clip. There’s also a collection of ready-made presets available. Simply click on a preset to apply that style to your shape. You can adjust the shape’s blur and opacity levels, and also fill the shape with a specific color or gradient. Adjust the borders of your shape with ‘Shape Outline’, where you can adjust the line type, size, color and blur levels. Also adjust the shape’s shadow with precise controls for shadow direction, blur, distance, and opacity. To add text, click on ‘Title’ and type in your text. Here you can also adjust the font size, style and color. ‘Shrink text on overflow’ makes the text auto-fit with the shape. Keyframe controls lets you change the position, size and look of your shape as the clip is playing. To add a keyframe, click on the diamond-shaped icon. You can add multiple keyframes to change the look of your shape throughout the duration of the video. Click the play icon in the preview window to view your shape. Click ‘Save As’ to save the shape as a custom PiP object. You can now begin using your shape in the PiP library.
