Sitting down at your computer and trying to write a professional research summary on your topic? Ok, before starting, it is important to have a clear understanding of what you're required to do.
A research summary is a professional piece of academic writing and requires your own opinion and approach to your work. Thus, in writing a research summary, you need to pay attention to its content, style, and the way you present it.
Nowadays, there are a number of techniques and tools with which you can present your research summary. One of the most professional ones is using video to present your work.
First, prepare the script that includes all the key points of your research in a simple and comprehensive way. Keep your audience in mind to make your video more engaging. Get the content ready and create a captivating research summary video with minimum effort.
With the right tool, creating a research summary video will not only be easy but also fun.
Below you can watch a research summary video created with one of our ready-made presets.
Follow the instructions below and present the key takeaways of your research through an animated video.
First, click on "Create Video" from the navigation menu to go to our ever-expanding template library. There are 800+ templates to choose from, separated into several categories and subcategories, so you have a wide choice for finding a suitable template.
We've used the Modern Infographics Pack template to create our video. If you want to use the same template, click on the "Create Now" button.
Our video editor provides two options for creating videos. You can create a new project by choosing the scenes manually or choose from the ready-made videos created by our team.
There are presets on various topics. Use the search bar to find a relevant one for your project, then click on "Load a Preset" and start customizing the scenes.
We've used the "Research Summary" preset for our project. If you like it, click on "Use ready story" and use it for your project. Now, all you have to do is add your media files and descriptions to the selected video scenes."
To create your video project from scratch, click on "Add scene" and start selecting all the necessary scenes manually. This template offers 22 categories with more than 500 scenes. Select the ones you need and click on "Insert Scene."
After you've finished selecting all the necessary scenes, start customizing them by using the tools on the left side of the editor: type your text, upload your images and videos, and adjust them.
You can upload your media files in several ways: via image or video URL, choose from Stock Library, upload from your device, or pick an already uploaded file from your Media Library.
After you've selected the image, make the adjustments to match it with the frame size of the image holder.
All the above-mentioned methods work for videos too. If you need footage for your research but don't have any relevant videos prepared, go to our Stock Footage library and find one from our 195.000+ videos. Search for specific terms or phrases and select the most relevant video.
You can trim the added video and keep the parts you want to use in your research summary video.
Edit and customize your scenes until you like their overall look. Each scene has a Snapshot feature, so you can see how it looks like without previewing the whole video. Now, go to the "Style" section and choose one of the available transitions.
In the "Color" section you can customize the colors of your video in general and change them for specific elements like text, shapes, or transitions. Select one of the ready-made color palettes suggested by our design team, or edit the colors of the video components by adding your custom colors.
Want to add background music or a voice-over? Go to the "Music" section and pick one of the music tracks available in our Music Library. If you want to use your own music or voiceover, upload it and add it to your project.
Besides, you can also record a voice-over and make your research summary look even more professional and impressive. Go to the "Voiceover" section and start recording.
When you fully customize your video, go to the "Preview" section and click on "Free Preview" to see the results. We highly recommend previewing your video before you export it in high quality.
The rendering process usually takes no longer than a couple of minutes.
Looks like your video is ready to be presented in its full glory! You can always go back and make all the necessary changes in your projects. They are all automatically saved in "My Videos," which you can access from the drop-down menu at the top.
Download your video for free or get it in high quality. The free version comes with a watermark and 360p quality. By making a single purchase or subscribing to one of our plans, you can get up to 1-hour HD1080 videos. With our subscription plans, you also get access to three other tools on our platform: logo maker, website builder, and mockup editor.
Your research summary deserves to be presented in the best possible way. Want to leave an unforgettable impression on people? Share your data through an interactive video and enjoy your success.
