Tips for doing well on TikTok

1. Record videos without holding the button


By leaving your hands free, you will be able to make more movements and choreography and, thus, enrich your videos even more. To do this, simply activate the timer, available through a clock icon on the shooting screen.

Indicate the length of the film and if you want a count of 3 or 10 seconds. So, go on Start shooting and wait for the countdown to finish before starting. If you want to interrupt, just touch the red circle.

2. Improve lighting

Are you in a low light environment? Don't worry. It is possible to activate the smartphone's flash and make the video better lit. The icon is available on the recording screen and appears only when using the camera that has the feature.

That is, if your device has only a flash on the rear camera, then see the icon only when it is activated. If the front camera also has a flash, then the option will also be displayed.

3. Explore the editing features


TikTok has a dozen filters that use augmented reality, similar to those used in Instagram Stories and Snapchat. Try the options to create original and creative content.

Another feature widely used in the app is video editing. The possibility of making easy-to-make cuts allows you to create magical visual effects, such as changing clothes or hairstyle when jumping or covering the canvas.

If you are recording with your free hands, just touch the red circle to pause the video and touch it again to resume shooting. If you are holding the button, just release it and hold it again when you want to record.

Then, adjustments can be made using the editing tools, such as the inclusion of transition effects and video clipping. You can also dub and dance songs you love, available in the Sons option. Or, use a song with a soundtrack after the video is recorded, in the post-production effects.
