Step 2: Apply AI Effect

To make a TikTok video go viral, the first two seconds are key.

If you want your POKÉDANCE video to stand out, we recommend using dynamic AI effects to make it pop.

We have all sorts of popular AI effects like:

In YouCam Video, you'll also discover a range of Effects to enhance your POKÉDANCE videos.

We have tried several effects and love the outcome!

You can apply these two effects in the example by going to Effect > Art category.

You don't always have to go for something big or fancy. Simplicity is another option and a good way to start things off.

In @dedanigi's version of POKÉDANCE, she changed the dance moves slightly (moving her shoulders instead of hips). It will be fun to explore your version of POKÉDANCE.
