Do you know how to turn your boring scientific research presentation into an engaging one?

Of course, you need to follow the basics: knowing your audience, providing the context and the purpose of your research, describing the problem, highlighting your activities and important information, and adding your conclusion with the key points.

The internet is full of tips on how to give an effective presentation. But, we are going to be more specific. We’ll show you how to present your scientific research data through an infographic video.

To demonstrate how easy it is to visualize your scientific research through video, we’ve prepared a short video about climate change with the help of our video maker. Let’s watch it:

Data source: NASA

To create this video, we’ve picked our Infographics Animation Pack. Click on “Create Now” to start.

There are two ways to create a video: add the scenes manually or load a pre-made story.

As you can see, there are many scene categories, including bar charts and infographics, self-filling charts, icon animations, image and video holders, checkmarks, and logo animations. Besides, you can choose a topic category from Healthcare and Weather to Finance.

Once you choose the scenes, start customizing them. You can add your texts, images, and videos. Let’s see how to do it. To the left, you can see the tools including the text field and the visual placement. Write your text and choose the position of the icon.

In the next scene, we have a video. Go to the scene library and pick a video holder. There are 4 ways to add a video: via video URL, from your device, from the Media library, and from our Stock footage library. By the way, you have an option to preview the scene before rendering the full video.
