Get to know the Video Editor

The video editor provides you with a variety of tools for making videos. The editor includes a toolbar, video canvas, timeline, zoom control, and an action menu.

In the Venngage video editor, a video is open, ready to edit. In the main view, the video canvas is visible, representing the frame of the video that the user is working on; the bottom of the screen has a timeline toolbar where the user can control what frames they are reviewing, add music to, or want to delete; in the left side, the frame segments are visible. A minimized toolbar on the lefthand side shows icon for tools like images, text, icons, music and export options.

The video canvas at the center of the editor is where you can move items around, make slight adjustments to item sizing, and arrange all items in your video.


Learn the left toolbar

The left toolbar includes the following sections:

  • Library: access an assortment of pre-made video templates

  • Background: modify your video background with different colors

  • Text: add text and modify font styles and colors on your video canvas

  • Elements: incorporate interactive elements, shapes, ratings and QR codes in your video

Each section offers an assortment of media types and styles that you can choose from to add to your video or apply special effects to items in your video.
