To achieve the black and white look seen in Taylor Swift's new music video, we've outlined two methods you can try:

In YouCam Video, you have a wide range of black and white filters to choose from. Each offers a unique retro touch to your video.

We have come up with several b+w filters you can consider trying:

  • Art > Noir
  • Film > Film 04
  • Retro > Shadow Symphony
  • Color > Black & White

Adjust the Saturation

Achieve TTPD filter effect

You can also try adjusting the 'Saturation' under Adjust in the toolbar. All you need to do is to tune the Saturation to -100, and there you have it.

One advantage of this method is that it's free compared to many other Black and White filters. However, its drawback is that it only offers a single black and white effect, which can be quite limiting.

Other TTPD Filters You can Try

Apart from ways to get TTPD filter on your video, there are more filters and effects to recreate the music video!

The Paper Flying Effect in TTPD

In YouCam Video, there's a neat effect that mimics paper flying, like a scene in "Fortnight," one of the songs from The Tortured Poets Department.

If you'd like to apply the black and white paper flying effect, you can simply export the video as it is and then add the black and white filter afterward.
