Fresh Editing Styles for Your Music Video

Create music videos for your fanbase fast and easily with our latest video editing styles. Just point and click to put your own twist on our stock footage collections, add special effects, and make your clips flow seamlessly together.

VHS Vision

Our new VHS Vision effects and editing style transports your footage back in time with an authentic, retro effect. Its static and analog glitch transitions every 16 beats remind us of old-school TV sets and video tapes from the 80s and 90s (remember those?). And we love how it gives clips that ‘found footage’ look and feel. Best of all, it works great with all of our collections and any tempo of track, so don’t be afraid to mix and match Rotor clips and your own footage. You literally can’t make a bad choice. 


Try our Cartoon effects and editing style if you want a vibrant video with an original twist. This is the ultimate style for all you comic book and cartoon lovers. It adds dynamic, rapid cuts between clips, splits your footage on screen, and adds overlays and frames to give you that classic cartoon appearance. We think it pairs best with upbeat tracks and energetic clips that are packed with action and motion (just like all great cartoons!)

Hit the lights, grab your popcorn and get ready for the show with our Cinematic video effects and editing style. Cinematic adds a vivid filmic effect to your music video with the classic black bars and the authentic 35mm film grain. It also fades between your clips so you get slower and more epic transitions in your video.  Try it with our Run With Us, Urban Outtakes, Future Revelations or Water Blade collections.

No footage? No problem!

At Rotor, there are thousands of beautifully-filmed clips with footage we’ve commissioned exclusively for our Rotor users. Although finding stock video is easy when you’re an independent artist, finding high-quality stock footage isn’t. At Rotor, we aim to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right visuals to showcase your song.
