How Do I Do the TikTok Trend on CapCut?

There’s a viral TikTok trend going on where people make a video of 11 pictures, each with 3D animations. If you want to copy that, just follow the guide above.

Only, instead of uploading one picture, upload 11 pictures. Then, apply 3D Zoom to all of them, and you’re done. You may also want to shorten the duration of each image.

This is how you should shorten the duration of your 11 photo clips:

  • 0.5 seconds for the first four clips
  • 0.3 seconds for the rest seven clips

Save the changes and post the video on TikTok. You’re done!

Conclusion

To summarize, using 3D effects on CapCut is easy. The “Style” menu holds countless effects, including 3D ones.

You must know where to find this menu and how to use it. In short, follow these steps:

  1. Open CapCut
  2. Tap on “New Project
  3. Select a video and tap on “Add
  4. Tap on “Edit
  5. Select “Style
  6. Find “3D Zoom” and select it
  7. Tap on the checkmark icon to save the changes

Once you do this, your picture will have a 3D Zoom effect, ready for you to upload. If you have any questions about 3D effects, post a comment down below!
