Creating Engaging Video Presentations

David Gillham

In the realm of presentations, we've evolved from static PowerPoint slides to dynamic, engaging video presentations. 

If you're not a video pro and don't have the time or patience to learn another video editing tool, don't worry. Creating video presentations doesn't require fancy video editing software or years of video editing experience. 

All you need is an online video maker like Colossyan Creator.

Why Choose Colossyan Creator?

Colossyan Creator is an advanced AI-powered platform that transforms text into learning videos. It allows you to add an AI presenter and text-to-speech narration to make your presentations more engaging. 

If you're pressed for time or don't want to put too much effort into making video presentations, Colossyan Creator is an excellent choice.

How to Create Video Presentations with Colossyan Creator

Creating a video presentation with Colossyan Creator is a straightforward process. Here's how:

Step 1: Create a Video Presentation Draft

Before getting anything started, you’ll first need to create a draft for your video presentation. 

Every eye-catching video presentation starts with a professionally-designed template. This is especially true if you're not experienced with an online video maker or don't have an eye for design. 

From the home page of Colossyan Creator, you can either:

Create a Draft

You’ll have 3 options when you click “New Draft”

Start from scratch 

This creates a blank canvas for you - greatif you already have experience with design and have an idea of what you’d like to create visually.

Prompt to video

This is an AI-powered tool that’s perfect for beginners. All you have to do is enter a prompt about the type of video you’d like to create and a machine will set everything up for you - from the design of the slides, to copy and visuals. 

Once generated, you can edit, tweak and customize the slides to your liking. The most important thing is to get your idea onto the “page” to help you speed up creation of your video presentation.

Select a template

A template provides your video presentation with both a visual and informational structure with ready-made scenes, helping keep your audience engaged and making everything easy to follow.

Colossyan has 20+ templates to choose from to help you create video presentations easily.

This option is for those who want to transform existing PPT slide decks or PDF files into more engaging video presentations. Simply click on “Import”. You’ll have the option to either import a PowerPoint or a PDF file.

Colossyan Creator will create a scene for every page of the presentation to be used as the background.

Step 2: Write a Video Script

Before you start adjusting the video presentation template, make sure you have everything you want to say in a concise video script. This will make the entire video presentation-making process faster and easier. Need help? Use our AI Scrip Assistant to help you:

Combine individual video scenes with text, and make sure to include no more than 3-4 sentences per scene to make the information easy to digest.

Step 3: Paste in Your Text

Take your written script and paste it into Colossyan Creator for each slide. Colossyan Creator will automatically generate a video narration from your text using its text-to-speech engine. To create a video narration in Colossyan Creator, simply paste your text in the video script box slide by slide and choose the voice you like.

Step 4: Add Visual Content

While the video presentation template provides a good visual outline, adding a personal touch with visuals will transform the video presentation into a more unique piece of content. 

When creating video presentations in Colossyan Creator, you can choose from 4 types of visuals:

1. Branded Visuals, Colors and Logos

If you’re creating a video presentation for work, you can upload your own images or videos to stick to the company’s brand. You can also save a Brand Kit to upload specific color swatches and logos so you can easily access them each time you create a new presentation.

2. Stock Video and Images:

Photo and video footage is probably the most common way of visualizing information. To find images or videos for your video presentation, go to 'Media' at the top of the video canvas.

3. Text on Screen:

Choose your key points and add them as text in your video presentation the same way you would in your PowerPoint presentation. 

To add text in Colossyan Creator, click on 'Text' and choose between Title, Subtitle, or Body Text.

4. Virtual Presenters:

Apart from the text-to-speech narration, Colossyan Creator will generate one more element from text - a virtual video presenter. Using a talking head in a video presentation is a great way to keep your audience engaged, and you won't have to record yourself presenting. Sounds like a win-win to us! 

To add an AI avatar to your video presentation, click 'Avatar' at the top of the video canvas and choose one you like.

Step 5: Generate Video Presentation

Your video presentation is now ready! 

Once you're happy with the outcome, generate the video presentation. Here you can edit the title and description of the video and include captions if needed. Share it with the world by copying the link, embedding it on your website, or uploading it to YouTube. Or, use it during a live presentation if you're not a fan of public speaking.
