Canva to launch video editing capabilities in 2020
The company plans to release an easy-to-use video editing tool in the same style as its photo editor.
The graphic design platform Canva announced it is launching Canva Video, a new video editing solution, next year. The video editing tool reportedly mimics the same ease-of-use as Canva’s photo editing solutions, Business Insider Australia first reported.
“Our mission is to empower everyone to design anything without any complex software or having to go to a different sources for different elements,” said Chief Product Officer Cameron Adams in a statement, “We’re bringing the same experience to our video editing tool.”
Why we should care
If Canva Video is anything like the company’s photo-editing software, marketers will gain a relatively inexpensive and easy-to-use solution for creating professional video marketing assets.
With the launch of its Enterprise plan earlier this year, Canva is building out its platform to be an all-inclusive graphic design solution for smaller marketing teams wanting to keep their creative in-house. (The platform currently has three-tiers: a free platform, Canva Pro for $9.95 a month and the Enterprise level platform that comes with a digital assets management solution.) Marketing Land has asked Canva to confirm if Canva Video will be included in all three plans but has not received a response.
The Canva video platform will come with a content library that includes, “Thousands of free stock videos, hundreds of free music tracks and thousands of free animated stickers,” reports Business Insider.
