Animoto 2: Working with video clips


Uploading video

Want to include video clips in your video? First things first, you’ll need to upload your content. Here’s how:

  1. Click UPLOAD
  2. Select a file to upload
  3. Once you’ve uploaded your video clips, you'll see them in the Assets tray
  4. Drag and drop your videos into the template

Video file requirements

We accept all kinds of video file types: MP4, AVI, MOV, QT, 3GP, M4V, MPG, MPEG, MP4V, H264, WMV, MPG4, MOVIE, M4U, FLV, DV, MKV, MJPEG, OGV, MTS, and MVI.

Your uploaded video clips can be up to 400MB. For the best quality, we recommend sizing your video clips to Full HD resolution (1920x1080 pixels).

Trimming video clips

You can trim your video clips by clicking on the “Trim” icon in a video block and adjusting the sliders.


Turning off video clip audio

To mute the audio for a video clip, click the speaker icon in the bottom right corner next to the video trim slider. You’ll see a message that says “Clip Audio Off.” To un-mute the audio, just click the speaker icon again.


Positioning video clips

If you want to crop your video clip, click on your clip and use the slider to zoom in or out. You can also click and drag your clip to reposition it within the frame.
