Have you ever wondered how the best music events and festivals attract so many participants and gain popularity? They surely have a couple of tried and tested strategies.
Their dedicated team of specialists makes sure that the event is properly promoted. And, one of their most effective tools is video. Why? Because video content is the most popular form of content these days.
Videos are everywhere, both online and offline. So, if you're still hesitating whether it’s worth investing your time and money in video or not, simply try it yourself. Especially, when you don’t need much money to create them.
Good news - no technical skills are needed! With Renderforest, creating videos is easier than ever. Pick one of our customizable templates and have your video ready in a few minutes.
To make it more clear, we’ll show you how to create a music event promo video step by step. But first, check the video that we’ve created ourselves with one of our templates.
To create a similar video, sign up or sign in to your Renderforest account, before going to the “Create video” section on the navigation menu. Here you'll be able to go through our preset and template collections, as well as use search filters to find exactly what you need. Filter by aspect ratio, frames per second, and tags to find the template or preset you're looking for.
After picking a template or a preset, click on the “Create now” button to start. We’ve created our video with the "Fiery Motion Typography" template.
You have two options to make your music event promo video: select the scenes you need yourself or use our ready-made presets.
Presets can be a good solution for you if you have no time and inspiration to create a video. Pick a preset that meets your needs and click the “Use ready story” to start customizing it with your own media files, text, and style.
The “Concert Promo Video” has the scenes you need to make your offer appealing.
However, if you want to create the project by yourself, click “Add scene” and select all the necessary scenes. This template offers four scene categories: title animations, logo animations, image and video holders.
Select the scenes you need and click “Insert” to add them to your project.
Once you’re on your dashboard, it’s time to customize them. Write your texts in the text holders and click on “Snapshot” to see how they look.
Besides the text holders, there are image, video, and logo holders in this preset. There are several ways to add your files: via image or video URL, adding stock images or footage, by uploading from your device, or by picking an already uploaded file from your “Media library”.
Here is how you can add a stock video or image and customize it. Click on “Stock footage”/”Stock image” and type a phrase or keyword to find a relevant file. Select the photo or video you need and click “Insert” to confirm.
Once you add your clips, select the parts you want to see in your video, and trim it.
You can crop, rotate, or apply our filters to your photos as well.
After you’ve finished editing your video, go to the “Style” section, and choose the transition style of your promo.
Select a font for your text and click “Generate” to see the changes on your scenes.
And, finally, complete your video by adding a background music track. Go to the “Music” section and choose the track you like the most or upload it from your device.
Besides, you can click on the “Add voiceover” button to upload or record a voiceover right on the spot.
To see the final result, go to the “Preview” section and click on “Free preview”, and your video will be ready within a couple of minutes.
If there is something you want to change, feel free to go back and make all the necessary changes to get your desired final result.
There are two ways for you to download your music event promo video. The first one is the free option, which offers SD360 quality videos with the Renderforest watermark. And with the “HD export” option you can download your video in high quality and without a watermark. Find all the details about our pricing here.
