Canva Video Creator

It is no secret that Canva is one of my all-time favorite tools. You can create incredible images, logos, documents, presentations, and even videos! It is easy to use and Canva can make anyone look like a graphic designer. One of the things that few know is how to create videos in Canva. Follow the steps below and create your Oscar-winning masterpiece!

Create a Video in Canva:

  1. Sign into your Canva EDU account.

  2. At the top click on “Videos” and choose your layout style.

  1. In the search box at the top left enter a theme idea that you are looking to use. I chose “space” to see what intros, videos, and other stuff Canva has for me.

  1. Click on a clip at the left to add intro clips or videos to your creation.

  1. If you are adding your own media, click on the “Uploads” icon on the left and then “Upload files” and choose your media. . You can also click “Record yourself” if you want to use your camera to record a new video.

  1. You can add text, images, videos, and other elements anywhere into your video by clicking the icon on the left and dragging the content to your video timeline. 

  1. Adding text or other elements is easy and done the same way as above.

  1. Once you are done, click the “Share” button. Then make sure to change it to “Anyone with the link” and “Can view”.Then click “Copy link” and share that as needed.
