Written on

Welcome back everyone, I'm Alex and today I will quickly show you how to use a premade animation template in order to add your own touch and create a unique short animated video or GIF with PixTeller animation maker.

Here's what'll cover today:

  1. 1. Step-by-step instructions to help you use animation templates;
  2. 2. The final result - the animation you've created;
  3. 3. Link to other types of animations - So you won't waste time searching for them.

For today's tutorial I will use this template.

The true power of PixTeller is that you can use any premade image or animation design. By pressing the "Use" button, the yellow one, the gif maker will open, and you can easily replace some elements in design mode, go in animation mode, save and render. As you see here, I will make a quick test to show you how fast and easy it is.

USE a premade video

Once the animation editor is opened, select the text elements and make the changes by writing another text message and updating the font size and family. You can also click on the background image and replace it with another one. If you want, you can select the big shape and replace it with something new. So, with PixTeller editor, you have a lot of freedom of maneuver.

If your design looks great, then go to animation mode by pressing the canvas area in the top-right corner button. Yes, it's the little yellow one.

Switch to Animation Mode

Remember to make a quick check to see if everything is alright. Do that by reviewing the animation frames or just by clicking the "Play" animation button to have a short preview.

If all looks good, update your title and click the "Render and Save" top-right corner button.

Preview the animation

Once all is rendered, click the "Download button" to be redirected to the animation preview page. Now you can download the animation in video or gif format and it's ready to go viral. You made it!
