Create engaging animations in your videos

from the official website.

The animation can be achieved using different techniques. In video editing software, you can animate objects by creating keyframes that define the starting and ending positions, rotations, scale, and other properties of the object. Animating logos can make them memorable. Animated explainer videos are an effective way to explain complex concepts or products in a clear manner. Animating infographics makes the data easier to understand.

In Movavi Video Editor, you can manipulate objects in your videos, crafting captivating visual effects. Let's explore the process of adding an animation to your project:

Step 1. Begin by adding a background into your primary video track.
Step 2. Add the object you wish to animate as the subsequent layer.

Step 3. Navigate to the left sidebar and click More tools. Next, choose Animation under the Video.

Step 4. For a quick and simple animation, choose Easy mode. You can select a preset from the available options by dragging it onto your clip.
Step 5. For intricate animations, switch to Advanced mode. Select the clip you wish to animate and position the marker at the desired starting point in the timeline. With the Animation panel open, click Add Animation. A frame will appear around your chosen object; adjust its position to achieve the desired animation result.

Two markers, referred to as keyframes, will emerge on the clip timeline. The first marker signifies the initial position of the object, while the second denotes its final post-animation state. The distance between these markers determines the animation's speed and can be edited accordingly.

Double-click a keyframe to make adjustments:
- Adjust the object's position by moving the frame in the player.
- Change the object's size by dragging any corner of the frame.
- Rotate the object using the white dot above the frame or via the Angle slider on the Animation panel.
- Fade the object in or out utilizing the Opacity slider on the Animation panel.
- Alter the animation speed, by moving the keyframe markers closer together for a faster animation or farther apart for slower motion.

Adding more keyframes offers flexibility to create complex animations.

To reset a keyframe, right-click the keyframe point and select Reset Keyframe to restore it to its original position within the clip.
To eliminate all keyframes and delete the entire animation, right-click any keyframe point and choose Remove All Keyframes.
