How to Use Templates

Our templates have been curated to serve as a guide to help you get a headstart on creating professional looking videos quickly! They are there for inspiration, and you can swap out the design elements, text, and images to create the design that you need.

Templates are made of: 

  • Text and Video transitions
  • Music
  • Font
  • Color Scheme
  • Ratio

Choosing a Template

To choose a template, you’ll start on the Create page to open the template selector. Our templates are organized by type in the left hand panel. You can also use the search bar, or start from scratch! 


Clicking on a template will open a preview. If you like it, select Choose Template. That will open the Workspace so you can start creating. 

Anmoto Team Tip: A good way to find the template you want is to search by the kind of video you want to create. For example, if you are creating a video to show off something new you are selling, you can use one of our product promotion templates and swap out the existing items.

Starting from Scratch

Templates will give you a great starting point to start creating your video, but if you already know what you want to create you can also start from scratch! Starting from scratch will open a blank Workspace without any blocks or existing content.

After you’ve chosen a template, you can swap out your own media and design settings to make it your own!. All Animoto videos can be up to 50 minutes long, and there is no limit to how many images you can use as long as your video is under 50 minutes. Your changes will save automatically as you go, and you’ll find those in the My Projects page when you log in!
