How to make an Animoto video without sound (using a silent soundtrack)

Part of the power Animoto brings to your videos is our large library of licensed music. On occasion, we understand you might need to produce a video that is completely silent. Although Animoto does not currently offer a built-in method to produce a video without music, we do have an easy workaround that involves uploading a silent soundtrack to your project to accomplish this effect.

Steps to produce a video without any sound:

  1. Right-click the "Download Animoto Silent Soundtrack.mp3" link underneath these instructions.
  2. Choose "Save link as..." to download the file. (note: your browser might say something slightly different.) 
  3. While editing a project, click "Change Song" to bring up the "Change Music" dialog box. 
  4. At the bottom of the dialog box, under the heading "Your Music", click "Upload Songs".
  5. Choose the silent soundtrack you downloaded in step #1.
  6. Enter a name for the track ("Silent Track", for example).
  7. If you'd like to shorten the song, you can click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the editor screen and use the song trim function to shorten the length of silence.
