Take your static designs to another level and create a short video instead to share on social media. Trust me, your engagement rates will thank you for it.

5 Steps to Exporting a Video in Visme

Step 1: Find a Template to Edit

Visme’s template library has hundreds of options to choose from, from different types of infographics to Facebook posts, Instagram Stories and other social media graphics.

You’ll find both animated and static templates in the library. If you want to export a video, you can get started with any of these.

Don’t worry about using a static template if it works well with your brand and content—you can always add animations to it and export as a video later.

Simply hover on a template you like and click on “Edit.”

You can also get started with a blank canvas if you’re looking to design something from scratch. Visme’s editor offers extensive customizability options, so if you have something unique in mind, feel free to select the “Blank Template” option.

Step 2: Customize Your Design

Once you have a template that fits your content, it’s time to start editing it in the drag-and-drop editor. Replace the placeholder content with your own, change colors and fonts, add icons and photos, and more.

If you want to export a video, however, you would need to add some animated elements and motion graphics to your design.

For example, you can add animated data visualizations, like bar charts and line graphs. You can also tap into a library of animated illustrations, characters and gestures. All of these assets come with their own settings, so you can adjust the colors, speed and more as you see fit.

You can also insert audio in the background or add motion effects to any of your existing icons, photos or text elements.

Once you’re happy with your final animated design, it’s time to export it as a video.

Step 3: Click on the Download Button

To export video and download it to your computer, navigate over to the top-right corner of the Visme editor, and click on “Download.”

Step 4: Select the Right Format

Visme offers several different download formats for your animated designs, including HTML5.

If you want to export a video, however, go ahead and click on the Video tab to see the options. Visme currently offers two video formats that are optimized for sharing on social media:

  • MP4
  • GIF

Pick the format that works best for your design. If your design contains audio and you want to export a high-quality video of it, go for the MP4 format.

If your design is just a short animation without audio, and you’re looking for a lower file size and medium quality that’s best for social sharing, we’d recommend choosing the GIF option.

Step 5: Download!

That’s it—all you need to do to export your video is click on the Download button and cheer wholeheartedly as the bar hits 100%!
