The “Effects” icon on the bottom to the right will let you choose from special effects. Also, the “Upload” button to the left enables you to upload a video.
Under the camera bar, there is a clock icon that allows setting the timer. Tapping “Photo Template” will allow creating a slideshow instead of recording a video.
3-Recording your first TikTok video
Press and hold the record button ss soon as you are ready to record your first TikTok video. Moreover, TikTok also lets you record your video in pieces and combine them.
If you want to record many shots in a video or divide the video, hold the record button for each pose or shot, then let go. Then press and hold the recorder button again when you are ready for recording the next shot.
However, you may not always want to hold the button during the entire shooting. You can also use the timer to give yourself enough time to prepare yourself before beginning the recording session. Then, you will be able to place your phone and prepare yourself before it automatically starts recording.
After completing the video shooting successfully, the app will let you add or change the existing song, choose from various filters and special effects to improve your video’s quality. Furthermore, you can include stickers and texts for further enhancement.
