QR codes in Video Star serve as presets for various parameters. This makes creating powerful modifications much easy.
Have you ever finished editing a video on Video Star, saved it, and then forgotten how you got it to look so good? Or maybe you wanted to use a looping clip to repeat the same edit, but you can’t get it to appear the same.
In Video Star, QR codes can help you solve this problem by allowing you to export and import saved settings across clips. Because you can access other producers’ settings via QR codes, this is also a terrific way for new editors to add more complicated effects to their videos.
In Video Star, How Do QR Codes Work?
A QR code is a barcode image that carries information on a specific format of Video Star settings. This means that by exporting a clip as a QR code, you can change it and save its settings.
Then, by importing the QR code onto another clip, you can apply the same settings to that clip. QR codes are essentially predefined settings in Video Star, and anyone may make or use them.
If you’ve used Video Star before, you’re aware that it has a plethora of editing windows with various effects and options. For practically all of these situations, a QR code can be constructed. This saves time because you don’t have to adjust the settings on each clip and can simply add a QR code to anything that has already been generated.
In Video Star, Getting Started With QR Codes in Video
Before you begin, you must first download Video Star for iOS.
Video Star is available for download (Free, in-app purchases available)
Not many effects support QR codes, however this appears to be changing over time as updates are released. Make sure your programme is up to current at all times, as the developers may add support for additional effects.
Another thing to bear in mind is that a QR code will only function with effects that you have purchased or have membership access to. If you want to utilise a preset that includes settings from the Color Magic Pack, for example, you’ll need to buy the Pack or subscribe to the Video Star Pro membership.
How to Apply a QR Code in Video Star
You can either create your own QR codes (find out how to do that in the next section) or save ones created by others. There are a slew of social media accounts that regularly provide free QR codes that you may use. Some editors go so far as to include their customised settings in preset distributions.
After you’ve saved the QR code you desire, follow these steps to apply it to Video Star footage:
1. Open one of the editing windows for your video clip: Re-Effect, Transform, or Multi-Layer. We utilised the Transform Window in the following example.
2. Select Import from the QR code icon at the top of the screen. A message will appear in the Transform and Multi-Layer Windows informing you that importing a QR code would wipe all of your current settings.
3. Tap Yes to proceed if you’re alright with it.
4. All of your photo albums will be opened as a result of this. Tap Yes when you find the QR code you want to use. Now, watch as your footage changes based on the settings that were encoded in the QR code.
These presets are cool since you can change their settings. After you’ve imported your QR code, go into the effect’s settings and make any changes you desire. So, if you’ve applied a Custom Coloring preset but don’t like the brightness, just find the Brightness setting and adjust it.
Remember that a QR code will only operate in the window in which it was made. It won’t work if you try to import a QR code into the Re-Effect Window that was built using the Multi-Layer Window. This is because some or all of the QR code’s options aren’t available in that window.
You must use a preset that was generated expressly for the window into which you want to import it. If you don’t, you’ll get a message saying, “This isn’t a [insert effect name] QR code.” To return, simply press OK.
If you plan on making your modification public, a solid rule of thumb in the editing community is to give credit to whoever’s presets you used. On the label of the QR code image, users usually include their username.
In Video Star, how do you make QR codes?
The ability to reopen a clip to change or replicate its parameters is one feature that Video Star lacks. To put it another way, you’ll never be able to retrieve the exact parameters of the effects you apply to a clip once you’ve generated it (unless you have a good memory).
You can save and store those settings outside of the app by exporting it as a QR code. You can apply and change them as much as you want this way.
To make a QR Codes in Video , follow these steps:
1. Open one of the editing windows for your video clip: Re-Effect, Transform, or Multi-Layer. We utilised the Multi-Layer Window in the following example.
2. Now you can modify your video however you like.
3. Tap the QR code symbol, select Share, and then tap Share again (if you’re in the Re-Effects or Multi-Layer Window).
4. It will now ask you to name your QR code. If you plan to share it, we recommend that you provide your name as well. When you’re finished, click Next.
5. Select Save to Photo Library from the popup menu and touch Done. It will save it to your photo collection as a QR code. Following the procedures in the preceding part, you may import it as a QR code on your clips from here.
If you use the Multi-Layer Window, keep in mind that there are different sections within that window where you can construct a QR code. The first is the Multi-Layer Window itself (as shown above), from which you may preserve the settings of each layer by exporting a preset.
You may also export the keyframe settings of a single layer as a QR code by accessing that layer, tapping the QR code icon, and then following the same procedures.
You can export the shape of an individual keyframe graph for individuals who prefer to personalise their keyframe graphs. Simply select Custom from the Graph Selector (the small block next to the Effect Slider).
Now, in the editor, tweak the graph and export it as a QR code by tapping the QR code icon and following the same procedures.
If you were to import a QR code that was exported from the Multi-Layer Window and contained numerous layers, you would need to select a clip for each of those layers.
Above is an example of a two-layer QR code that was developed and exported. However, because it was only one layer when it was imported into the Multi-Layer Window, the second layer will either be empty or have an automated description text.
On Video Star, QR Codes Make Editing Easier
You’ll never have to worry about losing your settings again with Video Star’s QR codes function. It also allows you to use an infinite number of settings created by others, making modification quick and simple.
