Get into the groove with video templates

If you don’t know where to start, Canva’s video templates will set you on the right path. Choose presets that match the energy of your music—soft, romantic graphics for a ballad, retro imagery for classic rock, or fluorescent backdrops for synthwave tunes. Using templates, you can make lyrical music videos for songs, as well as animated music videos with elements that move to the beat.

Edit like a production pro

Canva’s video editor is easy to use, enabling you to craft a smooth video with seamless transitions and flawless animation, even if you’re new to MVs.

If you’re using original footage, use the trimming tool to cut each scene to the perfect length. Splice your videos to remove any dull moments or grainy bits. For lyric videos, you can overlay text in sync with the music. If you’re making animated videos, the music video maker has you covered. Apply animation effects to move your viewers. You can also add illustrations, stickers, vectors, and other graphic design elements to flesh out the theme of your MV.

Share your music video with the world

Collaborators are welcome. When you make your own music video, you can send the link to your teammates and let them work their magic on the project.

No dilly-dallying. Once done, you can publish your finished video in an instant. Using Canva’s sharing options, post it directly to your video platform, whether it’s YouTube or Facebook. You can also download your project as a high-quality MP4 file and upload it to all your social spaces to maximize your reach.
