Do you have your own collection of video clips and images that you'd like to turn into a video? If you weren't aware, our 'Visuals to Video' tool can make it happen for you! And if this is news to you, don't worry, we've got you covered right here.
If you prefer a visual tutorial, we've got a YouTube video ready for you:
However, if you'd rather have a step-by-step written guide, you're in the right place. Please read on.
Go to the 4th box on the homepage titled - 'Visuals to Video' and click 'Proceed' on the box to get started.
Once you click 'Proceed' you will be prompted to select the images or video clips (or a combination of both) that you want to include in your final video. You can search through your computer files to find which images/clips you want to select.
After selecting all the files you want to upload, click 'Upload; as shown below.
On the next page, your files will be uploaded to the system and when that is done, it will be indicated by the 'complete' checkmark as seen in the screenshot below.
You can choose to add more files at this point by clicking the 'Add more files' button or you can click 'Proceed' to continue.
On the next page, you will be prompted to select a template and choose an aspect ratio.
Select the option best suited for your project to proceed. Do not think too much about the template or aspect ratio you want for your video, you can always change this later while building the video.
Pictory will automatically create a storyboard for you in which each image and video you selected will be assigned its own scene.
From here, you can effortlessly adjust your storyboard in a variety of ways. Below are some of the changes you can make to your video on the storyboard:
Pictory will auto-save as you make changes so you don't need to worry about manually saving your project. Saved videos can be accessed within the My Projects tab in the upper right.
Preview your project - You may preview your video by clicking the Preview button in the upper right. The preview feature will quickly create a rough draft of your video for you to watch. This can be helpful to verify your video is as you desired. Note: The preview may not reflect exactly how your final video will look.
Generate your project - Once you are finished with your video, you can generate and download it.
And that's how easy it is to turn your visuals into video with Pictory.
