In this Elementor tutorial I will show you how to create a video hover grid showcase. This can be a great way to showcase your video or animation projects. I will show you 2 ways to pull this off.

The first way will be a static version where you can place this video hover effect anywhere on your website.

The second way will be more dynamic and using ACF, Code Snippets and the Loop Grid.
