How to use AI in Canva to make presentations easily

In this AI world, let’s unleash the power of artificial intelligence in Canva to create  animations and exploring various other hidden gems of Canva. This AI won’t only help you create the visual part of your presentation deck but it will also help you write all the content and other aspects as well. So, you don’t have to start with an empty canvas. The AI features in Canva will also help you improve titles and create unique images that are not available in the Canva library and we will show you all of it here. Canva helped me write all the content and some of the images were generated by the AI so if you guys are interested let’s begin further.

Let’s continue to explore the magic AI features from Canva and this time we are going to look at a specific feature that is going to be awesome for making videos, this one is called Beat sync.

  • Beat sync will allow you to skip the manual editing when you’re making videos and match your video footage with a soundtrack with the click of a button.
  • Let me show you how it works. Let’s jump into a video project that I pre-arrange for you and try it out.

  • So, what we are going to do is to use a video project. You see different video clips right here. This project that I have laid out here have bunch of different video clips. I have aligned these with no soundtrack as of now. So, I’m going to start by finding a soundtrack.
  • You can upload your very own piece of music or you can find a soundtrack in the Canva audio library.
  • You can go to your apps and then find the audio. Now, this is a pro feature, if you are going to use this you will also have access to all of the pro soundtrack in Canva.
  • I’m going to be use any of this sound and Canva is going to position it on the timeline right here.

Beat sync is going to do is to realign all of that. So, let’s turn this on. Now it’s kind of perfectly aligned and let’s see the difference. After all this, you’ll really be able to observe the effect of beat sync. This really helped me really assist and changing the visuals based on the changes that I can hear in my soundtrack. This is quite hard to explain really what it does with words because it’s something you have to listen to and feel really. But here I really noticed that my audio track was synced with the changes of the visuals so this is Beat sync.

Again, it is a pro feature and a kind of magic because it is AI assisted in order for them to recognize the peaks in the music in your soundtrack.
