With the Slidely program you simply string together slides or select a pre-made video by choosing from a large library of premium videos, music, and text. They boast of having over a million video clips which give you a vast selection.
Select the ones that will fit your brand, then put them together with music, choose pre-written text or write your own, and it’s done. The license for the creation is all yours to keep as well.
The WeVideo app allows you to use multiple audio and video tracks at once. This comes in handy for those who want to create a video with layers of visual and audio effects. With over 500 audio selections, pictures, graphics, and videos from which to choose, you are well on your way to creating a video.
When you begin the video creation process, you will see a timeline at the bottom of the screen. Select the visual images or video clips you want to use on the appropriate track.
Next, put music or sound on the audio track to correspond to the visual element. If one of your clips is too long, you may simply cut it with the editing tools. Use your own pictures or videos if you like.
Make use of the transitions tab to move seamlessly from scene to scene. You can use simple or more complex transition effects.
You’ve probably seen a video using the whiteboard story form. The person writes on the whiteboard while a voice over explains a concept. The speed of the drawing is accelerated so that it keeps in time with the speed of the story.
The entire visual effect is very captivating. This is how VideoScribe works. You simply select the image(s) you want to have drawn, choose your music, and even pick out the type of hand you want to draw your pictures. Figure out how long you want the drawing to take and record your voiceover.
If drawing is your thing, then you can draw your own images and the program will do the story animation for you.
