Yes, you can edit videos in Canva! Just head to the Canva for Work dashboard and click on the Create a design button. Then, select Use custom dimensions.

In the pop-up modal, set the width to 1280px and the height to 720px. This will give you a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, which is standard for most HD videos. If you want to create an SD video, you can set the width to 640px and the height to 480px.

PRO TIP: Can I Edit Videos in Canva?

Yes, you can edit videos in Canva. However, we do not recommend using Canva to edit videos. Canva is a great tool for creating graphics and designing layouts, but it is not a video editing tool. If you want to edit videos, we recommend using a dedicated video editing software such as Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro.

Once you’ve set your custom dimensions, click on the Background button in the editor and select the Video option. You can then upload your video or choose one from our stock library.

Once your video is uploaded, you can then add text, overlays, and elements on top of it. To edit the video itself, just click on it and a toolbar will appear with all of the editing options. These include trimming, muting, speed control, and more!
