Using a template from inside the editor
You can also locate templates in the templates tab on the toolbar. Click on a template category to browse more options or click on the all templates button to open the template library.
Next, click on the + button to add the template to your 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.
Step 2. Import personal media
To import your own videos, click on the import media button in the your media tab on the toolbar to browse your computer files, import videos from your phone, or connect your OneDrive.
Step 3. Customize your video template
Replace stock videos with personal footage
To replace stock footage, drag and drop your media onto an existing template video in the timeline. Your personal video will automatically replace the stock video.
Modify text and titles
To customize animated text to your video, click on the text box on the timeline, then click on the text tab on the property panel. Here, you can customize your text, font, color, position, and size.
Add personalized branding
To add your brand kit logo, drag and drop your logo from the brand kit tab on the toolbar onto the timeline.
Adjust background music
To replace stock audio, drag and drop your personal audio on top of the stock on the timeline. You can also replace audio using different stock audio. Drag and drop an audio file from the content library tab onto the timeline.
Step 4. Preview and save your video
Before saving your new 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. Paid subscribers can save in 4K video resolution.
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.
