If you are looking to upload longer videos to Canva, there are a few simple steps you can take to make the process easier. First, you will need to ensure that your video file is in an accepted format. Canva only accepts certain file types, including MP4, MOV, and WMV files. If your video file is not in one of these formats, you will need to convert it prior to uploading it to Canva.
Once your video is in an accepted format, you can begin the upload process. Start by heading over to Canva’s website and logging into your account. Once logged in, click on the ‘Create a design’ button at the top of your screen. This will open up a new window where you can select the type of design that you would like to create with your video.
Select ‘Video’ from the list of options and then click ‘Upload Video’.
The next step is to select your video from its saved location on your computer or device. Note that Canva has a maximum file size limit when it comes to uploading videos. Any videos larger than 500MB cannot be uploaded directly into Canva; however, if this is the case for you, there are still ways that you can get around this restriction.
If your video exceeds 500MB in size, it is recommended that you use an external hosting service such as YouTube or Vimeo instead of uploading it directly into Canva. Simply upload the video onto one of these services and then copy and paste its URL (web address) into the ‘Upload Video’ field on Canva’s website. This will allow you to embed the video within your design without having to worry about exceeding any file size limits.
Once uploaded successfully, all that’s left for you to do is add text or other elements as desired and then save or share your design as needed!
In conclusion, uploading longer videos onto Canva is easy as long as they are in an accepted format (MP4, MOV or WMV) and don’t exceed 500MB in size. If they do exceed this size limit however, simply use an external hosting service such as YouTube or Vimeo instead and copy/paste its URL into Canva’s ‘Upload Video’ field instead! With these steps taken care of, all that remains for you is adding text/elements as desired and then saving/sharing your finished design!
