COVID 19 Effect for now - roll your own!
A simple effect that plays over your video clip, or add it to a title or generator.
OnScreen Control allows you to size and position the “outbreak”.
There are many options available, including the ability to apply different colors, opacity over life, scale options (and scaling over the lifetime of the object).
It is possible to create a single image and keep it still on screen.
On top of everything else, you can use any character (or even whole words) you like, then save your settings as a “new effect” (preset) available at any time in the future.
Use this effect as the basis of your own variations, including any emoji, or create “word clouds”. Use multiple instances of this effect to create several different images/words at the same time.
In time, this effect will be renamed 😉 … maybe.
