Stock Videos

Pre-made videos available for use in designs.

What are stock videos in Canva?

Stock videos in Canva are pre-recorded video clips that users can incorporate into their own video projects or presentations. These videos cover a wide range of subjects, from nature scenes to business-related footage, and are available in various formats and resolutions. They are typically used to enhance the visual appeal of a project, fill in gaps in original footage, or convey specific ideas or moods.

Canva's library of stock videos is extensive, allowing users to choose from thousands of options to suit their specific needs. These videos are royalty-free, meaning users can use them without worrying about copyright issues. They can be easily added to any Canva design, resized, and even combined with other elements like text, images, and audio. This makes them a versatile tool for creating engaging and professional-looking content.

How to use stock videos in Canva?

Using stock videos in Canva is a straightforward process. First, log in to your Canva account and select the type of design you want to create. Once you're in the design editor, click on the "Elements" tab on the left side of the screen. From there, you can select "Videos" to access Canva's library of stock videos.

Browse through the available videos or use the search bar to find a specific type of video. Once you've found a video you like, click on it to add it to your design. You can then resize or reposition the video as needed. If you want to trim the video, click on it and select the scissors icon to adjust the start and end times. Once you're satisfied with your design, click on the "Download" button at the top right corner of the screen to save your work.

Are stock videos in Canva free?

Yes, Canva does offer a selection of free stock videos that users can incorporate into their designs. These videos are included in the platform's media library and can be used for various purposes such as social media posts, presentations, and more. However, it's important to note that not all videos in Canva's library are free.

Canva also offers premium stock videos which are part of their Pro subscription or can be purchased individually. The cost of these premium videos is not included in the free version of Canva. Therefore, while you can access and use a range of stock videos for free on Canva, for a wider selection and higher quality options, you may need to consider their paid offerings.

Where can I find stock videos in Canva?

Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, and other visual content. It also offers a library of stock videos that you can use for your designs. To find stock videos in Canva, you need to first create or open a design.

Once you're in the design editor, you can find the stock videos by clicking on the "Elements" tab on the left side of the screen. From there, click on the "Videos" option. This will open a library of stock videos that you can browse and add to your design. You can also use the search bar at the top of the screen to search for specific types of videos.
