Below, I’m going to show you how to make videos with music.
STEP 1: Login to Rocketium
If you haven’t already, head over to Rocketium and create an account.
Why do I need to give my email id? This is because Rocketium will send you the downloadable link of your music video to your email inbox. Once your video is ready, you can download it using this link and then upload it on social (YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or include it on your website and in emails).
STEP 2: Go to the Editor
Once logged in, you will be redirected to the Rocketium Video Editor. Here you can start creating your music video. This is what you will see:
Note: Selecting multiple media files automatically adds them to different scenes.
STEP 3: Add text, images, and video clips
Upload your images/video clips or browse the built-in collection of over 1M royalty-free media from Storyblocks, Videoblocks, Pixabay, Pexels, and Flickr. Here, you can add text and voiceover for each scene as well.
You have text styling options like bold, increase the size and italicize. You can either upload a voiceover or use your device’s mic to record your own.
Once your content is finalized, click Preview in the top right. This is how your screen will look once you’ve got the content in place:
Hit the ‘Customize Video’ button to open styling options.
STEP 4: Select ‘Music’
Under ‘Video Settings’ you will find the option ‘Music’.
STEP 5: Select a genre and click apply next to the soundtrack to add music
You’ll find a list of genres in the Music tab. There are about 12 categories of music listed here. You can browse these categories to check out which soundtrack is available to use.
STEP 6: Select a music genre
The list of available genres is: Acoustic, Calm, Cheerful, Classic, Comical, Country, Bright, Dramatic, Electronic, Fast, Inspirational, Rock, Serious, Urban and Vocal.
If you need help selecting a genre, read ‘Tips to select the perfect music track for my video’
Note: You can customize the volume level of your background music as well. To do so, first, click on ‘Video Settings’ and select ‘Media’
In the options that open up, select ‘Media Volume’. You can use the slider here to adjust the volume of your background music in the video.
STEP 7: Click ‘EXPORT’
Once you’ve previewed your video and have finalized the background music, click on Export to publish your video.
Once your video is done rendering, you will recieve an email with the download link. You can also download the file straight from your Dashboard. There are also a few social sharing options available. Your music video can be directly shared to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Adding the right background music to your videos can make or break the viewer’s experience. You can influence the viewer’s decision by using the right music track.
