Whether you need a promo video for your small bakery or a countdown to your gaming live stream, our template library has something to suit your needs.
Check out how to customize templates with your own footage, add text, branding, and resize your video to suit any social media platform in this quick guide.
How to create videos using templates
Step 1. Find the right video template
Our beginner-friendly video templates can be found in three different locations. Locate templates through the template tab on Clipchamp, on the video editor homepage, and inside the video editor in the templates tab.
Browse video templates by clicking on the templates tab.
Click on the categories to view templates. To preview a template, hover over the image with your cursor. Once you have found the perfect template, click on the green + button to add your video template to the timeline.
If your video template is in a different aspect ratio to the automatic 16:9 aspect ratio, a popup window will appear. Click on add template to continue.
The video template will automatically fit the aspect ratio you have chosen already. In this case, our template has altered from a 9:16 to a 16:9 aspect ratio. If you want to edit your video's size, simply click on the aspect ratios on the right side of your screen.
Step 2. Customize your video template
It’s time to personalize your video template with footage, images, music, text, branding, and more.
Swap in and out stock footage
Customize your video template with unlimited stock videos and images, or add your own footage. To swap out stock footage, drag and drop a stock video or your own footage over another video on the timeline.
Modify text and titles
If you would like to edit the text on your template, click on the text box on the timeline. A sidebar will appear on the right side of the editor. Click on the text tab. Here, you can edit your text, font, and alignment. You can also edit the colors and position of your text using the colors and transform tabs, or add filters, fades, and adjust colors using the filter tab, adjust colors tab, and fade tab.
Add personalized branding
Keep videos recognizable and on-brand with our brand kit feature. Add your brand colors, font, and logo. Drag and drop your logo onto the timeline above your text.
Adjust background music
If you have your own jingle or background song you would like to add to your video, simply swap out the template’s audio and add your own. Upload your audio to the editor or search the music library, then drag and drop it on top of the existing audio on the timeline.
Step 3. Export your video
To save your video, click on the export button. Select either 480p, 720p, or 1080p video resolutions. We recommend saving videos in 1080p for the highest quality.
Level up video templates with pro editing features
Save time with easy gap removal
Shifting media around your timeline has gotten a whole lot easier. If you’ve changed your mind about a bit of the video and created a gap, instantly delete them with the gap removal feature. Instead of moving each asset one by one, click on the trash can icon to simply delete the gap. Never let a gap go unnoticed ever again.
Edit smarter with grouping and ungrouping
We understand your time is limited and valuable, so we’ve made editing faster and more functional. With a single click, our group multiple items feature lets you easily group and ungroup assets on your timeline, like videos, audio, text, stickers, and more. You can confidently make changes to items outside the group as well.
Get a closer look with full-screen mode
Before exporting your final video, watch your video in full-screen mode to never miss a mistake ever again. In just two clicks, preview your video inside the editor in more detail, creating accuracy and consistency.
