‘Explainer Video’ Tutorial

Make your explainer video professional-looking

If you’re making an explainer video for your business or for work, it’s important that it looks professional. VEED features all the tools you need to make professional-looking videos. You can add visual effects and filters to your videos to make them look professionally edited. Some of the video effects you can use are Light Leaks, Lens Flare, and Filmic effects. Add Television and VHS effects, and more.

Add transitions to convey your points clearer

You would often have to discuss a few points in your explainer videos. Help your viewers understand these points clearly by adding visual transitions in between. That means you can split your videos into parts and smoothly transition from one clip to another. You can choose from several transition effects, like Cross Blur, Cross Warp, and Dissolve. You can even fade your clips to black or white. This will help your readers know that you are going to move on to another idea or point. 

To add transitions, first split your video into parts. You can do this by dragging the arrow or indicator to any location on the timeline, then clicking on the Split tool. Select your desired transition and drag and drop it in between two clips. You can try as many transitions as you want!

Add text, subtitles, and more

Text and subtitles are key elements in explainer videos. This is especially helpful to your viewers who like to read along as they watch. Some people learn better by reading, so it’s important that you add these elements to your explainer videos. VEED can automatically generate subtitles for you. Simply click on the Subtitle tab on the top-left and click Auto Subtitle. Watch your own words magically appear on the screen! You may have to edit a few lines but it only takes a few minutes compared to manually typing them for hours.

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.
