How to make a Facebook video

Make a video for Facebook

Launch Canva. Search for “Facebook videos” to check our templates or make a Facebook video from scratch.

Upload videos and images you plan to use. Look through our media library for free illustrations, stock videos, or stock photos. Drag and drop your material onto your video template.

Customize your video. Trim the length of the clips and add transitions. Slow down or speed up sections for a dynamic effect. You can also make custom motion path animations and add text.

Make your Facebook video more impactful with the right music. Choose tracks from our sound library or upload your own. Synch the video with the music with our premium Beat Sync tool.

Play back your video to review it. Once it’s perfect for sharing, post it on Facebook or download it as an MP4.

Stand out from other Facebook content creators

With so many brands building an online audience on Facebook, you’ll get tired scrolling through tons of similar videos. But you don’t have to follow the crowd when making Facebook videos. Whether it’s a vlog, tutorial, product feature, or Facebook ad, you don’t need to copy what everybody else is doing.

With Canva’s amazing online video editor(opens in a new tab or window), you’ll create Facebook videos that feel like a breath of fresh air. It lets you record voiceovers, yourself, or the screen, and then add these recordings to your Facebook video. You can apply free video filters and effects. You can make custom animations, add smooth transitions, and put text in bold fonts. If you’re on Pro, you can use the handy video background remover(opens in a new tab or window). No green screen needed.

Set your Facebook videos to music

Add depth to your video narrative. Harness the power of music to evoke emotions and reactions from your viewers.

Looking for tracks to use? Search our audio library for music that best complements your Facebook video. Canva also has a collection of sound effects(opens in a new tab or window) that you can cue at perfect moments to make people laugh, jump in surprise, or pull at their heartstrings.

Of course, the audio must be in sync with the video, and Beat Sync(opens in a new tab or window) takes the hard work out of that. Beat Sync displays the beats of your chosen music, so you can mark where to start and end its playback in harmony with the footage. If you’re a Pro user, Beat Sync auto-syncs the track with your clip. Either way, with just a few clicks, you can add music to make your Facebook video more entertaining.

Roll out video content consistently

It’s not enough to have a couple of trending videos. To stay visible to audience and advertisers, creating and following a calendar of posts will go a long way.

Let Canva’s Content Planner(opens in a new tab or window) help you. Build your stock of Facebook video content—this is super easy with our video editor—then schedule when they’ll be posted without leaving Canva. Set it within the your followers’ active hours, and rest assured your Facebook videos will appear on their feeds. You can even track the views, likes, and comments each post gets.

Maximize your social reach by cross-posting on other platforms. Use our premium video resizer(opens in a new tab or window) to make your Facebook videos instantly ready for Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and Twitter. Use the pre-set dimensions for every popular platform. Switch your videos from portrait to landscape mode, and vice-versa, without sacrificing video quality. Canva Pro also lets you use Brand Kit, so you can easily apply your brand visuals to every Facebook video project.

With Canva’s video editor and maker, creating epic Facebook videos has never been easier.


Yes, Facebook has a video editor, but it only offers basic editing options, like updating the title or changing the thumbnail. If you need to create, trim, merge, or heavily edit your video, our online video editor for Facebook will give you all the tools you need.

You can record a video on Facebook, but it doesn’t allow additional edits like adding music. It’s easier to use our online video editor for Facebook—just upload your music track and add it to your video. If you don’t have your own music, don’t worry. Explore our free audio library and choose the music that fits your video.

It’s a similar process to making a Facebook video. Upload your video to our video editor, and use our tools to trim, split, merge, crop, or even resize it. You can also add music or mute the clip. In addition, our video editor enables you to edit a Facebook video to create new posts, like behind-the-scenes or promo clips. Once you’re done editing, you can share the video on Facebook or schedule posting at the best time.
