Best Practices for Importing Videos into GoAnimate

When you import a video file onto the GoAnimate platform, it will automatically be stored in Your Library.

From Your Library, you can add the file to any video. When you click to add the imported video file to your GoAnimate video, the size of the imported video file will be enlarged.

  • Resize Image: You can simply resize the video in the scene by clicking on the corner of a video and dragging the file size so it's smaller.
  • How do I reduce the file size of a video so that I can import it into GoAnimate? We recommend using a tool like HandBrake to reduce the video file size. See details here
  • Why does my imported video file not play all the way through in GoAnimate?  You need to drag the scene on the timeline so that it is the length of the imported video file. For example, if you import a 15s video file then you must drag the scene on GoAnimate to be 15s or more.
