How To Remove Background Noise From Video In Canva

Canva has gained popularity over the years for its user-friendly interface and wide range of design features. But did you know it also provides features to improve the quality of your videos? In this blog post, we will guide you on how to remove background noise from video using Canva.

Step 1: Upload Your Video

Firstly, log in to your Canva account. Click the “Create a Design” button on the top right corner. Choose the “Video” option and upload your video by clicking on the “Uploads” tab on the left side. Click the “Upload media” button to upload your video from your device.

Step 2: Add the Video to Your Workspace

After uploading your video, you can add it to your workspace by dragging and dropping it. You can also click the “+” icon on the video thumbnail to add it to your workspace.

Step 3: Remove the Background Noise

Unfortunately, as of now, Canva does not have a built-in feature to remove background noise from your videos. However, you can leverage external tools to remove the noise and then upload the improved video back to Canva. Let’s look at how you can do that.

Using Audacity

Audacity is a free and open-source audio software that you can use to remove background noise from your videos. First, you will need to extract the audio from your video file. You can use a tool such as VLC for this. Here’s a quick way to do it:

  • Open VLC media player.
  • Click on “Media” and then “Convert/Save“.
  • Click “Add” and choose your video file.
  • Choose “Convert/Save“, select “Audio – MP3” as the profile, and choose your destination file.
  • Click “Start“.

Now, you can open your audio file in Audacity and remove the background noise. Here is a simple way to do this:

    1. Open Audacity.
    2. Click "File" and then "Open" to open your audio file.
    3. Select a portion of your audio file that contains only the background noise.
    4. Click "Effect" and then "Noise Reduction".
    5. Click "Get Noise Profile".
    6. Now, select the entire audio file (Ctrl+A).
    7. Go again to "Effect" and then "Noise Reduction".
    8. Click "OK".

After applying these steps, you can export your audio file and then combine it with your video file using an application like VLC or iMovie.

Remember, while these external tools are great, they might not work perfectly in some cases. Always make sure to preview your video and check the audio quality before sharing or publishing.


Although Canva does not provide a direct way to remove background noise from your videos, it’s still possible to achieve this by using external tools such as Audacity, VLC, or iMovie. Keep experimenting with different tools and techniques to find the one that suits your needs the best. Happy video editing!
