Whether you’re creating a promotional video for your business or a birthday greeting for a loved one, adding music can elevate your visuals and evoke the right emotions from your audience. If you’re using Canva to create your videos, you’ll be glad to know that adding music to your video is not only possible but also incredibly easy! In this blog post, we will guide you through the simple steps to add music to your Canva video.
Step 1: Open Your Video on Canva
The first thing you need to do is to open the video project you want to add music to on Canva. If you haven’t started a project yet, you can create a new one by clicking on the “Create a design” button on the top-right corner of the Canva homepage, then selecting “Video”.
Step 2: Access Canva’s Music Library
Once you have your video open in the Canva editor, you will see a panel on the left side of the screen. From this panel, click on the “Music” tab to access Canva’s extensive library of tracks. You can browse through the collection based on the mood or genre of the music, or you can use the search bar if you have a specific track in mind.
Step 3: Add Music to Your Video
When you have found a track that complements your video, simply click on it and drag it to your video timeline. Let’s break down the process with some in-editor screenshots:
After dragging the music track to your timeline, you can adjust its duration and position to match your video. A particularly useful feature in Canva is that you can also trim the music track to start at a specific point, allowing you to use the best part of the track in your video.
Points to Remember
While adding music to your Canva videos is simple, there are a few points you should keep in mind:
- Ensure the music you choose complements the tone and message of your video.
- Canva offers both free and premium music tracks. Make sure you’re aware of any costs associated with the track you choose.
- Always respect copyright laws when using music. Canva’s music library is royalty-free, which means you can use any track from it without worrying about copyright infringement.
With this guide, you’re now ready to add music to your Canva videos. So go ahead, create engaging and visually stunning videos with the perfect soundtrack that sets the right tone for your audience.
