How Long Can Videos Be in Canva?

Canva is a free platform for graphic design used to create videos, invites, business cards, Instagram posts, and more. A drag-and-drop interface makes it quick and straightforward to modify templates. However, it’s pretty unclear how long a video can be in Canva? 

There is no set duration for videos; it is determined entirely by the template and the slides that are used. Canva users now have access to an extensive amount of storage space for their uploaded files.

Users will have a 30-day trial period, in which full access to all of Canva Pro’s features without any obligations will be provided. You can keep the pro version or downgrade to the free version after 30 days. Let’s explore more about Canva video length! 

How Long Can Videos Be in Canva

How to Change Video Length in Canva 

It will be necessary to edit the duration of the individual video clips in Canva to change the overall video length. The crop function allows you to achieve this.

Change the Video Length by Cropping the Video

The quickest and most straightforward method of adjusting the video length in Canva is to crop the video using the program’s built-in crop function. Then, select the crop function (represented by the scissors symbol) in the top left corner of the screen by clicking on the video slide.

Now, drag the video footage to the required length, remove it from the left to edit the beginning point of your video footage, and drag it from the right to revise the ending point of your video footage to complete the editing process.

The step-by-step guide will make it easy for you! 

Step 1:

Select the video footage and drag it into your Canva video project.

Step 2:

To access Canva’s cropping option, click on the scissors symbol in the top left corner of the screen.

Step 3:

Drag the video footage from the left (to edit the starting point of the video) or right (to edit the finishing point of the movie) to change the starting point and ending point of your Canva video as needed.

Step 4:

Once you have made the choices, click on the Done button to save your changes.

Step 5: (Optional)

You may want or need to modify each video slide’s starting and ending points in your Canva Video project if you have numerous video project slides in it. It can be accomplished by selecting and clicking on a specific YouTube video, then repeating steps 1 through 4.

Can You Modify the Video Speed in Canva?

Unfortunately, in Canva, it is impossible to modify the video speed in a meaningful way. The length of a video can be changed in Canva by cropping videos; however, the video’s pace cannot be changed. 

This difficulty can be resolved by first exporting your video and then editing it with another piece of software such as Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro.
