It is critical for content developers to include audio or music in their presentations or videos. Canva is one of the most popular graphic design platforms among content creators. This tutorial will show you how to add your audio or music to Canva.
Canva is a fantastic graphic design site that allows you to create virtually any type of visual material, including infographics, YouTube thumbnails, Presentations (slide shows), graphics for Instagram, short films, and just about anything else you can think of.
You can follow the procedures below to add music to your Canva projects
Navigate to your Canva Design and select the ‘Uploads’ option. You can see several possibilities. You must choose the Audio option and then click the ‘Upload Media’ button. You may include any audio recordings you want in your creations by uploading them.
If you wish to record your voice while designing, go to the three dots on the right side of your design and select ‘Presentation & Record’.
All you have to do is turn off your camera and record your voice. When you save your audio, it will be instantly posted to Canva Audios.
If you only want to add audio tracks to your Canva Free Audios, go to the ‘Audios’ tab on the left side and select any of the audios. You may also control the audio timings as well as the volume.
There are two methods you can adapt to help you add audio or music to your canva project.
To add music to your Canva projects, just go to the “Music” section of your Canva dashboard. When you open a project, the music tab will be available.
It is often found beneath the text button (on the far-left side of the screen/dashboard). All that remains is for you to select one of the audio tracks from Canva’s Audio Library. Simply drag the audio file into your project and you’re done.
To add your own music to Canva projects (whether photos, slideshows, or videos), first download your project.
After that, open your preferred video editor and just add your own music as a separate audio track.
You will still be able to utilize your own music with your Canva projects in this manner.
It may appear complex at first, but you will become accustomed to it. After a number of tries, it’s actually rather quick.
Canva is an expert at compressing files, which is why this procedure is still really excellent.
Having said that, the download usually just takes a few seconds.
After that, all you have to do is import the video clip into Premiere Pro and then add some music to it.
I know, I know, Premiere Pro is a premium application. If you don’t have access to Premiere Pro, you can perform the same thing using other free software:
You may use the free version of Davinci Resolve on a Mac.
On a Windows computer, you may use the video editing tools Virtualdub or OpenShot.
Problems associated with adding your own audio to canva
There are some shortcomings associated with adding audio or music to canva. It should be noted that dealing with audio in Canva is still difficult. Having said that, there aren’t many song modification possibilities.
In reality, the only thing Canva currently allows you to do with audio files is trim the music to a specific duration and modify the level of the audio track.
In many circumstances, this will not suffice. For example, there is no ability to either fade in or fade out your music.
Furthermore, the volume of your audio track may only be modified as a whole, which means that your whole audio track will be running at the same audio level.
Add audio tracks or sound effects from the Audio tab to your creations. You may also use and upload your own files. This functionality will not be available if you are designing on a partner website using the Canva Button.
After finishing the Spotify music conversion, you can effortlessly transfer Spotify music to Canva for editing. You may directly upload Spotify music to Canva from your computer, or you can add Spotify tracks using Google Drive and Dropbox.
Supported Audio Formats
WAV – Waveform Audio File. WMA – Windows media audio. WMV – Windows Media.
To modify the inserted track, click to select it on the timeline. Select Adjust by clicking the symbol at the end of the audio. Drag the audio waves into the sound bar’s colored portion. The design will play the tracks within this colored region.
Canva video editing now supports multiple audio tracks. Enhance your videos and social media postings with sound effects or background music.
Is Canva’s music copyright protected? What is permitted? Canva’s free pictures, audio, and video assets can be used for both commercial and nonprofit purposes. Please check the picture source or inform us if a photo, audio, or video file contains an identifiable person, location, brand, or trademark.
Audio clip trimming in Canva is as simple as it should be. Simply drag and drop an audio sequence into your project, then hover over the beginning or end point of your audio clip and drag to trim it. This is all good if you only want to do very basic audio editing.
To remove the audio, go to the upper right corner of the Canva screen and select the delete symbol. Another option is to reduce the level of the audio to zero by sliding the volume slider to the left.
In Canva, how can I separate audio and video?
- Remove audio from a video file
- Any video file can be accessed by right clicking (or ‘option’ clicking).
- From the drop down option, choose ‘Encode Selected Video File.’
- From the drop-down menu, select ‘Audio Only.’
- Selecting continue will result in the creation of an audio file in the same directory as the source file.
Making sounds from a video
- Bring in the video. Drag the file into the application window, or select “Open…” and select the file.
- Create a new file. Choose “Save As…” and the Save As dialog box should appear.
- Confirm the file type and save it. Set the resolution and file format that you wish to save as.
- Stick to the audio file protocol.
