How to Create Videos with Animations and Music in Canva

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

  1. can i download the video to my gallery?? please answer 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  2. Loved your content! 🔥 Your illustration most def is like Oli Mueller. His drawings hella is like Draw with Jazza and Keith Haring. He is a new artist in the US!

    Go see his channel out and give the artist a like! 👉 #OliMuellersGallery

  3. You said it was amazing looking at yourself, i didn’t get it the animation, i understand the canva site platform but your description of an animation swarming around a phone i didn’t understand with a picture of you in it on a cell phone gigilling at yourself, i didn’t understanding the message you were conveying.

  4. Hi, how do you place a element during a video but just on a certain time on the video don’t want it through the whole video. Like for example a exploded element on a certain part of the video.

  5. Hope will get an answer, I created a website using canva using mob first template, but when I opens it on mobile the bg color just changed, n there is a gap in between after every page, need your kind suggestion diana

    1. Hey there,
      I’d suggest you log off Canva and log back in again, see if this fixes the problem. If not, it might be a bug in which case you can reach out to Canva’s support team via this link: bit.ly/message-canva

      I hope this helps!

  6. Any ideas on hw to get the music to fade out instead of ending so abruptly. I already know you can select the end portion of the soundtrack that has a fade out. Any other way to fade a different part of the track?

    1. Hey Quincy, not that we know of. What you are doing by selecting the end of the track is probably the best way to do it so far.

  7. For Canva Stories app can you upload/use the music? Is it copyright free? Because I wanna post something on my insta but I don’t want it to get copyrighted?!?

  8. Great video! Thank you for sharing! Where did you find the that awesome piano instrumental of Controlla by Drake? 😊

    1. We might start producing content about how we shoot and edit our videos in the future, but for now we’d like to focus on Canva 😊

  9. For those wondering why it’s not working, try typing in “Blob + Liquid” instead of just “Blog Liquid”

  10. This was great. I didn’t realize that Canva has so many options for video editing. I’m looking forward to trying this out. Thanks!

    1. Glad it was helpful!

  11. Awesome tick Diana! I love using Canva. It is an amazing tool for easy and a cool way to edit both for photos, videos, and more!

    1. If you use any of the video doc types, you should see a tab on the left that says “Music”. Add a track and there should be a little indication in the lower left corner of the editor with the name of the music track you’ve added to your design.
      Make sure you download as a video (MP4) to hear the music.

    1. They shouldn’t if you use the track from the Canva library. It happened that a few designs got flagged, but the issues could be easily solved with IG explaining they were from Canva’s library.

    1. I guess if you duplicate the page and change the position of the phone and export as a GIF, but then it’s going to be difficult to have a video in that phone.

  12. Is there a way to animate video clips? like, to get a video to slide into the frame from the left and then play?

    1. Not really at this stage, but Canva is working on adding cool animations like this in the future.

  13. Great video! Can you create your own animations or can you only use the ones in the Canva library? Also, can I upload my own songs or am I restricted to the ones in Canva’s library?

  14. Thank you so much for this and I have a question!. Is there any way to have the music louder at the beginning and at certain point (because a video is coming) lower the volume of the music so you can hear in that specific moment what the person on the video is saying?. Or is ot necessary to keep the music at the same volume throughout all the presentation? Thanks!

  15. So many awesome tips and tricks, love your videos. Been a huge helping making my video thumbnails standout and looking crisp! You’re the best

  16. thanks for creating this video …two yrs ago l bought Wondershare editing and my laptop blue screened about 2 weeks ago and died the malware was in wondershare ..somehow ? love canva use it all the time for pictures and didn’t realize it could do videos WHOOPIE.

    1. Sorry to hear that your computer died because of a piece of that corrupted piece of software.
      Yes, Canva now has video and it’s only gonna get better!

  17. can you please let know if you have used the free or paid version of Canva here? nevertheless Canva is one of the most useful design tools out there, thanks.

  18. Amazing 👌🏻…. recently I found ur videos and they r very much useful for me to create a better post n yt as well as insta… keep posting more innovative ideas 💡…

    1. Glad to hear that, you can subscribe to our channel if you want to receive our new tutorial each week: bit.ly/YTcanva

  19. Thank you so much!
    I paid for a pro , version !
    It’s tottaly worth it paying, and it’s very easy to use !

  20. Awesome! Never knew this video/music was available in Canva. Thanks alot Diana, this will help in my future work.

  21. Hola Diana, me cansé de buscar buenos consejos en español, cambié a Ingles y apareciste con tu calido acento. Te felicito por tu contenido, saludos desde Colombia.

  22. 𝗧𝗢 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗣𝗘𝗥𝗦𝗢𝗡 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗦, 𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗪𝗜𝗟𝗟 𝗕𝗘𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗘 𝗦𝗨𝗖𝗖𝗘𝗦𝗦𝗙𝗨𝗟 𝗦𝗢𝗠𝗘𝗗𝗔𝗬.🙌💪

    1. Thank you! Success for us is doing what we love everyday… so I guess I’m already successful ❤️

  23. hello ma’am! I just would like to ask, isn’t the quality of video became pixelated when uploaded in canva? thanks

    1. Not in my case; if you are experimenting issues like that one, you should contact Canva directly: bit.ly/message-canva

    1. Maybe you could try logging out of your account and back in again. See if this solves the problem.

    2. Hi Amina Azhar, if you are having a technical issue in your Canva you can contact Canva support in this link – bit.ly/message-canva .

  24. Is there a way to add text to the background of the presentation (where your blobs are cruising around) at specific spots on the video? For example I am using the stock video of the dog nodding his head yes and no. How can I add text questions that he appears to be responding to? This is my first time to work with a video in canva (or really anywhere) so total newbie.

    1. You’ll need to crop the video when the dog says yes and that the text you want there, add another page, crop the video when the dog says no and add the other text box there.
      Hope it helps!

  25. Your French Accent is pure bliss.. <3 Thank you for the great tutorial. I am gonna make my first video with this now.

  26. Hello! I created an animation similar to yours where I place the video in a phone frame but every time I download the final product I use MP4 Beta which is suggested and it makes my video really blurry. Any suggestions?

    1. This could come from two things:

      1/ the size of your canvas (document type), make sure it’s big.
      2/ the resolution of the video you insert into that frame.

  27. Hello can I use the free trials for canva pro making videos and download to youtube? Including the music pro in canva?

  28. Can you help me. Whn i download the app i see nothing but the screen in the app is just the screen i see….

  29. Just recently discovered this site.. and its doing such great things especially this coming school year. got to be creative in presenting my lesson with my kids. thank you so much for such great help 😍😍😍

  30. How can we upload our chosen music. Only video and image are allowable to upload. Hope you can help me. I really need this. Thank you.

    1. Canva has a few different blobs, but unfortunately we cannot change the color of the animated stickers at the moment! Hopefully soon 🤞

  31. Hi diana. I use canva on my phone and it’s been working well just that some frames don’t have picture options like this mobile phone. It only shows options for colour reset but not picture. Please, what do i do?

    1. @Design with Canva I’m asking that I use canvas app in mobile,
      But it’s app not options change in desktop version in mobile.

  32. Here’s a feature I’d like to see: when I am browsing in videos and I come across something that I’d like to be able to find later especially if it’s one that does not seem to fit under the subject area where I found it, it was great to have a heart in the upper left corner that I could select as a favorite or a star. I don’t see that anywhere without you when I’m reviewing videos and elements already in Canva, especially video

    1. This is something our users have been wanting for a long time: favoriting elements, videos, fonts, … A workaround for now is to add it to a folder.

    1. Music is for all users, not just PRO. Just make sure you are using interactive document types like presentations, animated social media, video, …

    1. I mean to say you are saying in video that after editing video you will pay $3 or $2. So my question is that if I have canva pro version also then I have to pay $3 for video or it will frrr for canva pro user?

  33. Hi Diana, when I’m downloading it as a video, the video is not working properly, I’m only able to listen to the audio. Can you help me in resolving it?

    1. Have you noticed this problem consistently with different projects or only one in particular? If it’s a recurring problem, you should contact Canva’s support and ask for help there!

  34. It’s a really good video, I could understand very well the hole procedure, but I would recommend you to practice in your English pronunciation!

  35. Thanks for your beautiful content its really help me a lot i will try it soon take care and more power to your channel

  36. Hi, thank you for this video. I’ve a doubt, if I just want to animate some part of my design created from scratch. Like there is a PIC and TEXT box. What if I just want to animate only text in a gif. Is that possible in canva? Thanks:)

  37. Great video and love your graphic work! Thank you for explaining it so simple. I kept seeing everyone with this and didn’t know how they did it. I love Canva it makes it easier for creators like myself to make great artwork.

    1. Hey Raymond,

      Music and animations are for all users. Certain animations will be for Pro only though.

  38. This is a brilliant video demonstration. I love Canva but don’t use it anywhere near enough

  39. Hi, how do you get the music to extend to fit multiple slides or adjust the duration of slides to fit one play through of the music please?

    1. @Design with Canva Hi, not sure it does. I seems to have one play-through of the music and you can slide it to the best position to try and make it fit, but you can’t repeat it or edit in any other way 🙁

  40. THANK YOU!!! THIS HELPED ME A LOT I’M NEW TO YOUTUBE AND I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    1. No, video is available to all users. To see the music tab, make sure you start from an interactive type of document like the presentations, animated social media or Stories.

  41. Hey could you just help with how these works out in the android and have you done any tutorials for the mobile app yet??

  42. Amazing! It actually saves my time a lot in editing! I’m a big fan of Canva !!! Thanks for a great feature Canva! love ya 🙂

    1. Make sure you are using an interactive type of document like the animated social media, IG post, stories, … anything that could work with video. Then you’ll see the music tab.

  43. Thanks that was great. Do you know how to adjust the timings on each slide. ie. I have a video playing with music in the background, however some slides have more words than others, but the slides seem to be timed the same. I want some slides to linger longer because they have more words. How can I do this.. I hope you know….Thank you

    1. I know teams at Canva are currently working on improving the video experience, but for now, you cannot manually adjust the lenght of each slide of your animation. I heard it’s coming though.

    1. Very soon you will be. I don’t believe music and animations are already available on mobile. But teams at Canva are working very hard on bringing everything to the mobile experience.

    1. No video and music are both free options. Make sure you open a presentation doc, or some sort of video doc, animated social media, … to access these features. They only appear in the interactive types of documents.

    1. Just download it in the mp4 format using the download menu in the top right corner. (arrow pointing down)

  44. Is there a way to adjust the amount of minutes a slide runs? I made Instagram slides with info on them that takes more than a few seconds to read. Can that be adjusted?

    1. Hey Collins, what do you mean? Can you please be more specific with your question so we can help you out? Thanks

    1. Hey!
      You’ll need to send the video to your phone first or download it directly to your phone and then you can use it as a post or on your stories.

  45. How can I export my animated video without losing the sound? I try to use the animation tool to export and have cool intro/transitions but the sound is not coming with it :/

    1. Diana Muñoz thanks for checking Diana. Yes their video is not on point and quite frustrating for a company that want to have videos with animated text. Their animation options are quite limited too :/

    2. Hey Ben, they told me they are aware of this problem and are currently working to fix it.
      For the moment we can download videos with music with the download video option (the one without the animations).

  46. Amazing! I normally only use Canva for thumbnails, I didn’t know you could do so much more 👌🏿

    1. We can do sooo many things with Canva! We just need to learn all their features 🤓 it’s very powerful!

    1. Not at the moment but I’ve already sent the suggestion to Canva! Many of us would love to have this feature 😍🤓

  47. Great video !! i love canva BUT when i upload my video, i can’t without my video is .mp4 and .mov
    When i crop or upload , website just fail about my video not .mp4 or .mov..

    Can you hepl me ? pls

    1. Hey, the video trim feature + music is not available on the app at the moment.
      But you could try opening Canva from a browser on your mobile, you’ll find more options there 🤓

    2. These new funcionalities are not available on apps yet 🤓 but when they do, I’ll do a tutorial on it 🙂

  48. Thank You sooo much for this!! So many ladies in my business use this and I was wrecking my brain trying to figure out how!! Sooo cool!!

    1. Music in only available on video doc types. Look for it in the presentation doc or the animated social media doc. Basically all doc types where you can upload video.

    1. @Design with Canva I still don’t see the music tab. Maybe it’s only available to certain accounts.

    2. The music tab is only available in video doc types, like the animated social media posts and the presentations. Look for it!
