Read Time: 2 minutes

Animated video presentations look impressive. They also look complicated and time-consuming to produce. Fortunately, that’s not the case; it’s even possible for a novice user to make an engaging and eye-catching professional quality video presentation if they have the right tools. Here’s what you need to know to make an animated video presentation in five simple steps.

Five Steps to Create an Animated Video Presentation

1. Create a presentation outline. Before you hop on your computer to make an animated presentation, you need to start low-tech with an old-fashioned outline. Organize your ideas, main points, illustrations, and viewer engagement segments so everything will come together easily when you get to the step of creating your presentation. Your future self will thank you for taking the time for a little low-tech preparation before diving into the digital creation process.

2. Gather existing assets. Don’t reinvent the wheel; use assets and materials you already have! Collect images, anecdotes, and logos you’ll need to insert in your presentation. Review previous comms, reports, or slide decks for data points, bullets, and text you can repurpose. Gather everything in one place so when you’re ready to work on your animated video presentation, you won’t have to spend time hunting down materials.

3. Create a free Powtoon account. The process is simple and only takes seconds. If you prefer, you can log in using existing Google, Outlook365, or LinkedIn credentials. Once you create an account, you’re ready to make your first video presentation!

4. Choose a template. Click the “create” button on the left sidebar of your dashboard. Next, click “presentation” from the drop-down menu. A variety of templates will appear on your dashboard. You can further filter the selections by choosing your industry from the top buttons. Browse through the recommended templates to find one that best fits your vision for your animated video presentation. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. With Powtoon, you can customize everything

5. Customize your animated video presentation. Go through the template and add the content from your presentation outline. Upload images and assets, insert charts and create custom characters to help animate your anecdotes. After you’ve added all the necessary pieces, go back and focus on the details that make your animated video presentation shine. Add transitions, adjust animations, change the color scheme, or include your company logo. Use a video template to make your presentation look professional right out of the box, so don’t worry if you don’t make a ton of changes.
