Your reactions caught on cam

A meme is all in the visual. A picture or a video reaction speaks for you, so you must find a relatable visual cue to nail the joke. If you have a meme-worthy reaction caught on camera, use it to your advantage. You’re free to upload clips, photos, or screenshots from your gallery to Canva and use it to make your meme video more personalized.

Canva’s meme video editor also has a wide range of free and pre-licensed stock images, GIFs, and videos that can help you create playful and silly memes that people will enjoy. You can even add a laugh track or a quirky sound bite from our high-quality stock audio library.

Big movements. Big. Huge!

Move past the usual memes in still images. Make your video pop, fade, rise, and more to engage everyone on each hilarious post you have. Who knows? This might turn your meme into a viral hit. Remember that animated visuals help captivate the audience’s attention, so design your meme video with big and energetic movements.

Keep everyone in tune by adding exciting animations to your texts and elements. Or set your whole meme video into motion with a lively transition. Click “Animate” and apply different effects to any graphic on your layout, so it gives a more comic telling of your meme video.

Editing (and sharing) is definitely a mood

It’s easy to be a master meme video creator. Either create one to relate to your community as a brand or simply have light and fun conversations with family and friends. Think of your meme videos as an extension of your expression and work on that seamlessly with Canva’s video editor. Customize pre-made templates easily with our drag-and-drop tools.
