How to add GIFs to videos
Step 1. Import videos or select stock footage
To import your own videos, photos, and audio, click on the import media button in the your media tab on the toolbar to browse your computer files, or connect your OneDrive.
You can also use free stock media like video clips, video backgrounds, and stock music. Click on the content library tab on the toolbar and click on the visuals drop down arrow, then videos, photos, or backgrounds.
Drag and drop your video onto the timeline to get started.
Step 2. Find the right GIF for your video
Click on the content library tab on the toolbar and click on the visuals drop down arrow, then GIPHY.
Here, you can search the GIPHY library using keywords in the search bar or click on the GIPHY or stickers by GIPHY categories.
When you have found a GIF that suits your video, drag and drop the GIF onto the timeline above your video.
Step 3. Edit the size and location of your GIF
Use the freehand resize tool to edit the size of your GIF. Drag the corners in and out to make the GIF smaller and larger. You can also freely move the GIF around your video preview by clicking on the GIF, then dropping it to its new location.
Step 4. Preview and save your video
Before saving your video, make sure to preview by clicking on the play button. When you’re ready to save, click on the export button and select a video resolution. We recommend saving all videos in 1080p video resolution for the best quality. If your video has 4K video footage, paid subscribers can save in 4K video resolution.
