Make a video for free

Free stock videos & world-class music tracks

Canva’s video maker has thousands of stock video footage and high-quality audio tracks, that you can access without leaving Canva. We also offer premium content options at an affordable price.

Create professional videos without watermarks

Unlike other video making tools, Canva is free. No watermarks will be added when you download your videos, and there’s no limit to how many times you can make or download a video.

Professional videos for social media. No design skills needed

Canva gives you the power to create professional-level videos without the hassle of complicated software or the cost of a professional videographer. There’s no software to download, and no new skills to learn. Simply pick a video template, then customize to suit your needs. When you’ve finished, you can download your video and share it on social media.


To add music to a video, all you have to do is open up your video in an editor, import your media and adjust the audio. Most tools allow you to edit the audio so that the music plays at different times in different sections of the video, or throughout the whole video.

The best video file formats are MP4, which allows for high quality and smaller file sizes; AVI, which uses less compression and permits larger file sizes; WMV for Windows applications; and MKV, which incorporates audio, video and subtitles into a single file.

Upload your video file into an editing software program and go through the editing features: trim, resize, filter, title, motion. Think about length, audio quality and color, perspective and pacing, background music, intros and outros. Invite others to collaborate on the editing process.

What they say about Canva
WOW. This @canva video tool is so powerful, plus I'm sure it's going to get even better. I just created an IGS video ad in 15 minutes that I used to have to pay a videographer/editor $300-500 to make. Best $10/month I've ever spent.Saving the world from bad design! Canva takes care of all your creative marketing needs: posters, logos, menus. We’ve used them for everything in our restaurant.Canva is easy to use, never thought myself to be creative but with Canva I'm discovering a whole new side to myself. You can create posters, images for social media and book covers. Saves me a lot of time and more flexibility by not having to wait on an external designer.
