To start creating a video, the simplest way is to choose a template, click on “customize” and access the video editor.
If you just can’t make your choice, then I recommend clicking on “Start now” on the homepage. You will access an area where you can choose from the suggested templates or access the large library of video clips to edit from scratch. You can also upload your videos and images to get a unique and personalized product.

With this simple and fast, but professional video editor, you will be able to manage the entire video creation process in a few simple steps, marked by the three commands that you will find on the left:

For each frame you can change the colours and the format and, by clicking on the text, you can modify it, choose the font, and change colour, position, and size. Furthermore, in this area of the video editor, by clicking on the “Play” button you can have a preview of the entire video.
- Media: from this section you can insert videos and photos into the video by choosing them from the Promo.com library, uploading your content or choosing from your previously saved favourites.
- Music: here we are at the last step. Choose the music from the library, being able to filter it by genre, mood, duration, and instruments. If you are not satisfied with the Promo.com proposal, upload your tracks.
