How to Produce an Attractive Video on Showbox
Users can start making awesome shows by clicking Start a new Show on the top right of the dashboard. Video production gets easy and better subsequently when you get to choose a video template. You’ll find most of the video formats here that you’ll come across on the web like countdown videos, gaming videos, reviews, inspirational videos, etc.
A filter on the top breaks down the formats into different genres. There is always the choice to create your own flow of the video, which you can do by selecting Create your own. Let’s go with Tip of the Day template. Clicking on a format will tell you the media elements you are allowed to add in the given format. In Tip of the Day, you’ll be able to add videos, images and audio. Click on Create to select the theme and feel of your video. I selected Indian Winter (Black) since it looked relaxing and neat. Click on a theme for a preview and if you like it, click on Choose Theme.
Consequently you’ll end up on the workspace where you’ll start with editing the opener. The background soundtrack can be trimmed or changed from the top right by clicking the mixer button. I chose this theme because of the wondrous background image in the opener. However, you can change the background from the opener panel. The only drawback I found here is the limitation of the text I could add, but I suppose it’s to get the best visual results. Various media can be uploaded on this free video production web app by clicking the media gallery on the top right.
I proceeded to add the main content: the tip. Type in the title and the voiceover audio can be added from the top. The next step is to add media content showing the tip. You can add images and videos or link a video. These can be added from various social and recreational websites like Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Apart from that you can always add media from your computer.
If you choose a template that supports adding videos, you have the benefit of keying yourself on another video. The process is easy, click the Scan button with yourself on a green screen then step off from the green screen so Showbox can scan the green screen itself. This will key you out and you will be able to customize the video background with another video.
Finalize the video by adding the ending title and your contact details.
This free video production app will take some time to generate your video, so sit back and enjoy some snacks while Showbox is at it. When it’s complete you’ll be notified with a mail. Go to its share page where you can directly upload it to Facebook, YouTube, and share it on Twitter. You can also generate an embed link or share its URL.
Here is the small video I made using Showbox.
Showbox is one of the first video production services I’ve come across that makes your videos feel professional. You just have to follow a couple of hassle-free steps, upload the desired media and you’re good to go. The final result you’ll get will be a beautifully rendered video. The only drawback you might find is the Showbox watermark at the end. But I wouldn’t worry about that since the service they’re providing is exceptional. I award this free video production web application with 5 stars.
