Features of Moovly’s Online Video Editor
The User Interface is very easy to use and is not clustered with too many parts, which is something we tend to see in many video editors.
The tool has four major parts (Library, Stage, Properties, and Timeline) all of which are well explained and shown. This makes navigating through the tool simple and comfortable so you will not get confused at all.
The Library: It contains more than 70 million multimedia items which are readily available to you at the time of creating your video. These include video templates, infographics, motion graphics, animated clips, stock images, story blocks, and many more items.
The Stage: This is where your creation will be made. All you’ve got to do is pick out an item from the library, drag and drop it onto the stage. The item can be adjusted in terms of size and positioning according to your liking.
The Timeline: Here, you get to control the length of showcasing various items you’ve added onto the stage. Each item when dragged from the library and dropped on to the stage has its own timeline which appears like a bar. You get to determine at what exact second an item appears on the stage and just how long it should take. Easy peasy right?
Beneath the timeline, there is an option for ‘Add animation’. That option as the name suggests animates objects you have placed on the stage. You can have, say, moving hands dragging your notes left and right, up and down. You get to choose how your item will first appear on stage and how it will exist.
Properties: From this space, you are able to make adjustments to the appearance of your stage. For example, you can choose your own colors for the stage and other properties you wish to apply.
With this tool, one can create incredible explainer videos, marketing videos, presentations, tutorials, and many others. Many captivating templates are available, in variety, and can be adjusted broadly to best address a user’s need.
Making your video is literally done in these 3 simple steps!!
After you have exhausted all options during the creation and finally have your complete video, you are free to publish it on YouTube, Vimeo or the Moovly gallery, download it in mp4 format or share your project with other Moovly users.
Downloading, however, is not possible if you have a free account but you still have access to your creations in your set up Moovly account. All videos are auto-saved the moment you start crafting them. Upgrading to a pro account activates the download option that’s lacking in the free account.
