Video one shows the essential tabs required for the task of video editing and adding effects to your videos, all of the video editing capabilities are contained within the Edit Tab which also includes all of the transform options such as zoom, rotation, scale etc. The inspector panel that has all of the transform options also can be used to set keyframes for animating the transforms.

Once done editing the video move to the Color Tab, this lets you add different looks for your video, this part of the software is where you can turn those bland looking video into something vibrant and unique.

Video two, imports a bland looking aerial drone shot, makes some basic video edits to it and then uses the Color Tab to add some contrast to the shot by making the darker parts and shadows of the clip darker, as well as the lighter parts and whites of the clip brighter. Finally add some temperature and saturation for color.
