Creating an Animoto video takes only a few minutes.
Step 1. Create Video
To begin, tap the create video icon in the menu bar.
Step 2. Video Tools: Style & Song
We've chosen our most popular video style and song for you, but tap on Change Style or Change Song if you want to switch it.
Step 3. Video Tools: Photos & Text
Next, add all of the photos and text that you want to appear in your video. To rearrange their order, tap and drag them within the grid. To edit any item, tap on it once.
If at any time you want to see the details of your video, tap on the ‘i’ icon to see the video information. You will be able to see the currently selected style, song, and the total number of photos and text slides in your video.
Short videos are up to 30 seconds long. You can also make full-length videos from your Android device by purchasing a paid account. (For more info, see “How and why should I upgrade my account?”)
Step 4. Preview Your Video
When you have finished setting up your video, tap Preview in the top-right corner to see how your video looks.
Step 5. Produce Your Video
Happy with your video preview? Tap Produce and we'll create your video. Don't want to wait? Go ahead and tap Produce. (You'll have to log in or create an account if you haven't already done so.
