How to make a explainer video

  1. Start by creating a new Spark Video project

    Clicking the big plus button on web or in the iOS app will open a slide-based editor. No complicated timelines here with Spark video's intro maker! We suggest storyboarding out your video story within the app by selecting one of the preloaded story structures or creating your own by adding notes to slides, which will guide your creation. Each slide should represent just one point or thought.

  2. Add media to the slides

    Now it’s time to add media to your slides. Choose between images, video clips, icons, or text. You can search for free photos or icons within the tool or use your own images or video clips. Add up to 30 seconds of video at a time to each slide. We recommend using short video clips or images to visually represent your message.

  3. Select pre-designed layouts

    Present your media in a variety of layouts by selecting one of the preloaded placements in the top left corner labeled “layouts.”

  4. Use text to communicate key information or calls to action

    Text on screen makes sure those watching your video without the sound turned on get your full message. If you’d like to speak directly to your audience, simply record your voice by hitting the red button and speaking into your phone or computer.

  5. Spice it up with a theme and soundtrack

    Spark Video comes pre-loaded with themes that control the overall look and feel of your video. Themes power transitions between slides and the motion of elements. Simply tap the “Themes” category and choose from unique themes. You can also add music by uploading your own track or selecting one of the free songs in Spark Video.

  6. Publish and share

    Once you’ve finished the video, share it directly to social media, email the link, or save the video to your iPhone or Android camera roll as an mp4.

Perfect and customize your explainer videos

Using Adobe Spark as an explainer video maker allows you to create online presentations that stand out from the competition. Thanks to a selection of customization options, your explainer videos will be as unique as they are engaging. Make as many changes as you wish to text, layout, images and music until you’re happy with what you see. The result of every change you make can be viewed instantly in the preview panel. Get the production process started by selecting the “Video” option in the main menu. You’ll instantly be taken to the first design page, where you can give your project a name. Either enter some text or skip this stage and name your project later. You can then choose from a large selection of ready-made video templates provided by Adobe Spark, which speeds up the design process significantly. Alternatively, you can start your video from scratch.

Why you need Spark for your videos

Creating a professional video with dedicated software or the help of professionals can be a very expensive process. But Adobe Spark is completely free, and it delivers results most video production professionals would be proud to call their own. More importantly, however, Adobe Spark allows you to remain in charge throughout the design process — giving you the perfect video for your needs. And you can do all this without any prior knowledge of programming or video production. Use Adobe Spark as your free explainer video maker, and get professional results without the expense.
