New Video Editing Styles this November

Want to put your own unique spin on our stock video collections? You need to try our latest Rotor video editing styles to give your music video that extra edge.


Our Recoil editing style will inject a surge of energy into your clips for a powerful music video that really packs a punch. This editing style adds a strobe-light effect and a deep purple tint to your footage. It also animates your clips with glitch effects in time with the baseline of your track. Try it with our Future Revelation, Blackout, and Visuals collections, and pair it with high-BPM tracks to make the most of its fast-paced effects. 

Color Block

Transport your fans back to a groovier time with our Color Block editing style, inspired by design patterns from the 60s and 70s. This video style adds subtle blue and purple tints to clips and geometric-shaped graphic overlays to give your footage a retro flare. Our Color Block style creates variations in the animated overlays depending on the intensity of your track, playing continuously or bouncing to the bass. It looks great with all Rotor collections so get creative and try it with any of your tracks that feature a strong baseline. 

Ink Drop

Our Ink Drop video style adds a parchment style overlay to your footage before revealing your clips using blots and splashes of ink. The style dissolves and blends your clips in time with your track and uses a slow clip cut rate for a laid-back pace that gives extra emphasis to each clip. For best results, use it with normal speed and slow motion footage. Pro tip: slow-motion footage creates the effect of a picture printed on paper. 


If you want to intensify your footage with electrifying energy, then our Flash editing style is perfect for your next music video. This lively style adds a strobe-like flash and an echo effect to your clips and adds the effects in a sequence that depends on the intensity of your track. Our Flash editing style has a fast clip cut rate to create a high-energy effect. We recommend using it with all types of music genres or tempos for a unique result. Try Flash with our Architectural Lighting,VHS and Skate collections for optimal results. 

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.
