How to make a video from slideshow?

Every slide from your slideshow represents one scene in your Rocketium video. All scene transitions can be replicated in the Rocketium editor and new ones can be added as well.

This is how you can make a video from a slideshow using Rocketium:

  1. Go to the Rocketium editor. If you haven’t created an account, you can sign up here.

  2. Add media, text and voice-over

    The first step to convert a slideshow to a video is by adding all the slides as the scenes. You can do this from the “Add Content” screen. Here you can also add text captions and add voice-overs.

    To add media:

    Upload: Take screenshots of each slide and upload them as individual scenes. You can do so by clicking on the upload icon (arrow pointing upwards) and selecting the images from your computer.

    Search: You can click on the search icon (magnifying glass) to search for an image or a video clip from our library of over 15 million free images and video clips.

    Drag & Drop: You can also drag the images to the editor and drop them.
