In this post we'll help you create cannabis-themed videos with Placeit, where you can make mock-ups, logos, design templates, and animated videos right in your browser. While a template is a great thing, you might want some media that isn’t stock; we’ve added suggestions for extras to help you get the most out these templates.
Placeit is straight-forward to use, but here’s a quick overview: There is no needed experience with Final Cut Pro or the Adobe Creative Suite, everything is done within Placeit. Simply browse the well-organized templates until you find one that speaks to you and you’ll be able to add music, photos and video. Like Tuts+, PlaceIt is owned by Envato.
Currently, users may only use music that Placeit provides—which is a large, high-quality selection—and that might not suit your needs: at the end of this article I’ll suggest a work-around and some great audio tracks from Envato Elements.
Let’s jump in!
