How to make a YouTube video

  1. Start with a new project

    Clicking the big plus button on web or in the iOS app will open Spark's video editor for YouTube. No complicated timelines here! 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 tk 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 your platform of choice, email the link, or save the video to your camera roll as an MP4.

Customize your YouTube video even more

Whether you want to create a YouTube movie or just a simple reaction video for Youtube, your video is saved to your Spark project organizer so that you can edit it at any time. Change themes, music, images or text, and add or delete slides as needed. Also, Spark Post is perfect for creating a unique YouTube thumbnail for your video as well.
