3 Ways to Get More Mileage Out of Your Motions

Motion backgrounds are the perfect way to add an extra element of creativity to your worship services. Want to get more use out of your background videos or bring more variety? Here are three creative ways to get more mileage out of your motions:

1. Shift The Hue of Your Motion

Changing the hue of your background can create a series of themed videos very easily. Although not every hue change will work perfectly, you should be able to find a few new color variations from most motions. One example of how this could be used is by displaying one color in the verses of your song and another during the chorus or bridge.

2. Flip Your Image Vertically or Horizontally

You will be surprised how flipping your motions can drastically change the look of your background. In the example below, you can see how a vertical flip took the arrows from moving up to pointing down, which changes up the symbolism and feel.

3. Shift From Color To Black and White

Similar to changing the color of your motion is removing the color altogether. This can be a great effect for intimate moments in your worship service. You can also create a powerful moment by transitioning from greyscale to color when the tempo picks up in a song.
