Does the thought of editing videos, adding music, images and text make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? We can well understand that. Although there are already plenty of tools for creating crisp short films, this is always associated with a certain amount of effort and know-how. With presono, animated short videos now become an absolute no-brainer! We will now show you how you can create them for your presentations in presono with just a few mouse clicks and without any video editing skills!
80% of our memories are shaped by visual impressions. It is therefore a logical consequence that we prepare our presentations to be as visually eye-catching as possible. After all, we want our message to be firmly anchored in the minds of our listeners. To achieve this, however, we do not recommend graphic text experiments, but rather the use of exciting, surprising, captivating images and videos. For this reason, in addition to impressive gallery formats, we have now also developed automatically animated Media Journeys for presentations.
Think of this new presono feature as a kind of image video that you can create with just a few mouse clicks in our tool and integrate directly into your presentation. All you have to do is select images, videos and one of our style templates. Our tool will then automatically create an animated movie, which you can then individualize with music and your preferred colors and fonts and integrate into your presentation. And all this without any video editing tools or programs!
