Part 2: Create Cool Trendy TikTok Videos Using Motion Array Templates
Trend #1: Turn DMs into quotes
If you receive hilarious DMs, you can take this opportunity to have some fun. If you’re a business, then how about using this style for testimonials? We recommend using Geometric Stories for this one. Use the TikTok music A thousand miles by Vanessa Carlton, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #inspirationalquotes.
Trend #2: Don’t be surprised if one day I just
This is an aspirational TikTok trend that’s perfect for showcasing what you love, or what you’d rather be doing, like traveling the world or creating something. Businesses can jump on this trend to showcase new projects they have coming up. Add the hashtags #DontBeSurprised and #dontbesurprisedifonedayijust, and use the song Go Down On You by The Memories.
Trend #3: I was busy thinking about
Show off your daydreams in a visual way by creating a fast visual edit and throwing in plenty of clips of things you’d rather be doing. Use the music I was busy thinking about boys Charli XCX, and tag it with #iwasbusythinkingbout or #iwasbusythinkingabout.
When it comes to creating cool, trendy TikTok videos, there are some key things to bear in mind. The main thing to remember is that you’re not making any old social media videos – you’re making TikToks. It’s a specific audience with specific tastes, and you want to make your videos feel at home on the platform.
- TikTok is all about trends, and it’s best to jump onto a trend as soon as you have a video idea for it. If you leave it longer than 5 minutes, the trend will have moved on to something else. So keep up with what’s current to make the most of your content.
- The best export settings for TikTok are to create 4K videos, definitely vertical (1080×1920) and preferably 50K bitrate at 24 frames per second.
- To make your editing even better, start working with an audio track in mind rather than adding the track later. It will make the video feel organic and intentional.
TikTok is a big, daunting platform, but now with these trendy and easy-to-use templates, you can create amazing clips to inspire others and look like a pro! Pay close attention to what people are liking at the moment and what trends are fashionable, and edit the template you chose to make your editing quick and stress-free.
