5 Steps to Creating Your Video

Step 1

Choose a storyboard template

Animoto gives you dozens of storyboards to choose from. Grab one with a design you like or that fits your project best. If you’re not sure where to start, our Memorial Slideshow storyboard can help you get started with your memorial video.

Step 2

Add photos and video clips

Give your video a personal touch. Upload photos and video clips, then drag and drop them right into Animoto. Don’t have enough images? Search our library of Getty Images photos and videos to find what you need.

Step 3

Make it your own

Give your video the look and feel you want. All of our storyboards can be changed to fit the video you want to make. And our flexible design and style tools let you change colors, fonts, and transitions in just a few clicks.

Step 4

Select a song

Set the tone for your video with a soundtrack. Try out one of the songs in our library of licensed music, or upload your own licensed music. Need help finding the right track? Try searching our music library by mood.
