Video Editor Overview
Whether you’re a small business owner, freelancer, student, or just looking to build your video creation and editing skills, Simplified’s video tools can elevate your marketing and design.
You can access all things video by selecting the video icon. Once you’re on this page you’ll see all these different templates. We have professional designers on our team that create eye-catching video templates. When you select a template that fits your voice or brand, you can customize in just a few clicks.
Let’s start with how to find the perfect template. You can scroll if you want to browse or you can use this search bar to look for a specific format, such as Instagram Reels, a specific idea, such as real estate or product video ads, or a specific platform, like Facebook or Youtube.
Once you’ve selected a template you can start using our design tools. You can see that we have our art board and our timeline view. This timeline view gives you a breakdown, second by second of your video. There are two main ways you can create a video. The first way is by taking a still graphic design and adding animation to it. The second way is by using video content which you can upload from your device using the my assets icon or by browsing simplified’s multiple video libraries. There are thousands of videos right at your fingertips and you can search for specific themes and ideas to find the perfect one.
You can select a specific element, and now lets walk through these tools in the top toolbar. We can use this button to play individual videos within our design. We can use the scissor icon to trim our individual video element, adjust the volume, replace the video in just a click from our library, apply filters (contrast, etc), and add animation qualities to the element. You can use these three dots to open an editor menu with advanced tools where you can continue to edit, add effects, and even see all the different layers within your art board.
Remember if you ever make a mistake, you can always use this undo button, a real life saver sometimes! And all of your work saves automatically so you never have to worry about losing your work!
Now let’s look at our video in detailed timeline view. You can adjust the total time of the video by moving this here. You can edit the number of art boards by using this button here, and adding or deleting any art board.
Now come over here and click the three dots and choose adjust. Now we can see every element and the positioning within the complete video. When you click a specific element, it will highlight on your art board. You can see that each element is labeled by type of element. You can just the length of time each element appears in your art board. You can also adjust when certain elements appear in your art board, you can stagger them or keep them appearing at the same time. This is a great place to play around and find your own style! By clicking these icons you can adjust the enter and exit animations.
Let’s go back and talk about audio now! You can add music by clicking this here or by going to media and then selecting the audio tab. You can browse by genre, instrument, or search for specific sounds. You can preview the audio by clicking this play button and you can add the audio by click the element.
Now we have this fantastic design, I’m going to show you what you can do with it. One of my favorite features is the magic resize tool. You can change the dimensions of your art board to fit any platform. So let’s say I want to change this to Instagram dimensions, simply click the resize icon, choose your size, and all the work is done for you.
You can also publish or schedule this design to publish on your social media by using this button. You can download your design to your device, preview your video, add comments and tag a team member in real time! You can also share your design with a link or by entering an email address.
